Ono (tastes great) grinds (different entrees) anything at Zippys is always good.Known for their unreal Chili.Make sure you stop by . Drive in coffee shop style in front, and full on dining room in back. Gotta stop by or you will regret it.

I went here with an elderly very dear friend who wanted to treat me. i suggested Zippy's because their prices USED to be reasonable--especially in Kailua, where a LOT of $$$ places have sprung up. Well--imagine 25.00 for two bowls of saimin and beverages? HUH? It was a cold rainy night and saimin sounded really gooood... It was just so-so... More

My daughter asked advice from a Hawaiian co-worker for places to eat. Zippy's was suggested. We picked this one due to close proximity to where we attended church on Sunday July 13, 2014. I ordered the Zip pak and my daughter ordered Teriyaki Chicken. Both were very tasty (even the fried Spam which I hadn't had since I was a... More

Zippy's serves mels that tend to be more local style than other eateries. When visiting Kailua we stopped by for lunch. The location was small and we thought maybe it was an "express style" Zippy's. We ordered and sat at a small booth. Upon leaving we inquired about restroom location. We had to exit building and enter a door towards... More

The menu is varied - you will be able to find something you will like here - the waiters are friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. Napoleon's bakery is in the front of the building and has great desserts and treats. There is a drive through for telephone orders which is convenient... More

What can one say. If you visit the islands it is a must to have at least one meal at Zippy's. You can select from numerous local dishes ranging from spam to ox tail stew. It would not a trip to Hawaii if you didn't go into Zippy's.

Enjoyed the chili and rice that appears to be a staple dish. However, could have gone without the fried chicken. I tend to like a little spice to my food and chicken was pretty bland. The service was average and staff was friendly. Not sure I would come back again.
