Their pancakes are the best I've ever had

I've never been to this restaurant in the evening so I can't speak about the bar/biker crowd. I have been at lunchtime and while the food is certainly edible, it can be a bit reminiscent of cafeteria food...generic, tastes like it's purchased and cooked in huge quantities...nothing on the... read more

used to be a reliable, affordable place to eat - now, not so much... the last time we ate there was .15 cent shrimp day - hello? they were not using the word shrimp loosely! these things were so small that they were nearly impossible to peel. Couldn't believe it - and the prices have gone skyhigh. I recommend going... More

Zippers is located in a shopping center that is growing with new stores and popularity in the Lincoln County seat. We never seemed to think about Lincolnton restaurants until we found Zippers for breakfast. This is not a fancy place at all. Some tables are leveled using cardboard from Miller Beer boxes, to give you an idea. But, the coffee... More

We went for lunch, the boy is nine. We had a good lunch had good service and good food. The previous owner was a great guy but passed a few years ago. Glad they kept him alive by keeping Zippers alive.

I earlier wrote a review about Zippers great seafood and I want to write about my most recent visit. I am not sure why the seafood was so different my last visit but the seafood was average at best. I hope they can correct the problem soon. At this time I would not recommend their seafood.

First the food was very good! Was disappointed in the environment of the place. The set up was not what I was expecting at all. Our waitress was young and didn't stay on top of our drinks.

We had breakfast here on a Sunday and it was packed. The food was very good and we had great service. The wait staff were very friendly and kept checking on us.

The food is served fast and hot with plenty of coffee or tea. Very friendly staff and the place is usually fairly busy. They are open early and close at nine P.M.. The food ranges from sandwiches and Breakfast to home cooked dinners. We visit there usually at least monthly. It is also a place to find out what is... More

Service in this place has continually gone down in the last year, but this last one just did me in for this place. Servers here are totally apathetic, don't check on customers, and when they do ask how things are, they've already started walking away before they even finish the question. Great tater tots, but not enough to pull me... More
