This Zippy's is HUGE! i didn't even know there's a dine-in area. This location is really close to ko'olina (about 15 min away). Came here for dinner and got loco moco, korean fried chicken, and a chicken and chili plate (all mini), and three spam musubis. I really enjoyed the korean fried chicken. The amount of saltiness and sweetness was... More

I've eaten at this Zippy's 3 times for the chili and after the last time I will not return. We had been to the restaurant the night before and had the same server, I guess a $8 tip on a $32 bill gave her the need to ignore us for 10 mins, once we ordered it took another 40 min's... More

If you want the fast food the locals eat, go to Zippys. You have to try it at least once on your trip to Oahu. They are everywhere. Instead of cheeseburger and fries, thing rice and Spam. Good food!

Zippy's was recommended by several resort employees as a place where locals go and affordable. It was described as the Hawaiian Denny's but I found it to be much better than any Denny's I've been to. They have a sit down be served area and a counter service area with a small sitting area if you choose eat there. They... More

We were staying in Ko Olina and as some of the over reviews pointed out, were looking for a casual place that wasn't very expensive and had lots of options. The kids wanted beakfast for dinner and this place worked out perfectly. They have your standard breakfast fare (Omlettes, pancakesm french toast, bacon etc) but they also offer up local... More

If you are staying in Ko Olina with a car and don't want to pay an arm and a leg for a meal Zippy's is a good alternative. It is referred to as the Hawaii Denny's, but is actually a step up from I-Hop and Denny's. The food is good and reminds me of the offerings at a Cracker Barrel.... More

We went here twice and I had the same thing each time. I'd never been to a Zippy's but my husband had. I'd never heard of a Loco Moco so I tried it. And I loved it! It's a big bowl with rice in it then a big hamburger patty on top, with wonderful brown gravy poured all over. You... More

Not bad, not great. Passable food and pleasant service. So many better options available nearby make me scratch my head as to why it was so crowded when I was there and each time I passed by. I will sau that the Lau Lau was one of the better ones I had.

Ate here three separate times. Had the ahi fish, and it was very tender and cooked just right. My husband had the Korean chicken salad, which was delicious. I tried the Saimen and a local dish. All were excellent. They also have a bakery there, Napoleans, which is excellent! They also have a fast food side, so you have a... More
