A great place to enjoy the sea of Cortez

Zipper's has good food. The Chile Relleno is good. The Nachos are huge and good. The Rib Eye Steak Sandwich is huge and good. The food is not the best ever but it is good and at a decent price. What is spectacular is the location. Where else can you enjoy a margarita or beer while sitting in... read more

I had a lunch and and a dinner--- staying 5 minutes away in a vrbo. The food is average with standard mex and gringo food. The services still quite friendly albeit slow. A little overpriced. The views of la rocka and zippers surf breaks are the best. Not a bad choice but I highly recommend also eating at places that... More

Just like the title says. We loved eating at Zippers. We discovered it last year and it was the first night's dinner this year. We took some fish we caught for them to prepare and it was delicious!

My husband and I were back at Zipper's again in February. We took our usual walk down the beach from the Hotel Posada Real Los Cabos, passing lots of repair and rebuilding work at the hotels and businesses along the way. We saw a few remaining sea turtle nesting areas, which were clearly marked and protected. We have ordered the... More

Long waits for service, poor quality food. Great Micheladas! and great view of surfers working the waves. Located a few steps down to the beach.

The place has really good food, and lots of it. Mostly damaged from the hurricane, it is very simple seating along the beach. Not fancy, but great eating!
