This place looks like it has it all, beach front, uninterrupted views, cocktails and food. However, service is deplorable, really rude and so bad they make you feel uncomfortable and then expect a big tip. Food was ok, menu is extensive and meal sizes are...huge. Feel like they just want to feed you, demand a huge tip and then kick you out so they can do it all over again. Such a shame because this place could be so much more. To be brutally honest, the wait staff need to do a course in people skills, social settings and serving tourists.More

We went for a long walk down the beach to visit zippers for an early dinner. The portions were huge, the food hot and the beer cold. Service was great! You can't ask for much more. Will definitely return!

We ate dinner here twice- walked from our nearby condo! Everything was amazing! I craved a burger one night (after all the tacos), and it did not disappoint! Tacos and burritos were amazing! Our waiter, Alex, was super friendly and took great care of us!...He deserves a raise! The music was wonderful as well. Must visit!More

I would have to say that in my entire life I have never been served such aweful, taken from the freezer ,uninspired food in my entire life. The owner should get out of this business and sell used cars to people that have no idea...there are shisty people in this world. If this place didn't have this location it would have closed first week in business. Shame on them for fleecing their customers and giving terrible exchange rate after horrendous food. Don't be another suckered, go anywhere else. For humanity.More

Zippers was excellent. When you’ve been in Mexico for a whole week and you need some American tasting food, Zippers hits the spot!! I had the fish and chips and it was excellent. Our table also had some guacamole which was so good. Our friend...had a cheeseburger which he said tasted just like one from back home. Another friend had the nachos which she liked except for the black olives but she picked them off and it was fine. Husband had the fish tacos and he liked them also. They also have a couple of American beers which was nice. We all love Mexican beers but after a week, it was nice to have a smooth light Michelin Ultra! Zippers is also cool because it has a great ocean view and sits right next to a surf lesson shop. So there are lots of surfers in the water. We enjoyed watching all the surfers. It was amazing watching little kids maybe 5 years old who were amazing on a surf board. Also a couple of girls who were more talented than the guys! So fun!More

The fish tacos were good we had both fried and fresh. The view was wonderful. The overall cleanliness of the restaurant was poor. Specifically, the concrete floors seemed like they hadn’t been scrubbed hard ever. Bathrooms disgusting. View was amazing. Scary greasy frozen hamburgers.

I always enjoy eating at Zippers while I’m in Cabo. This was my first time to get breakfast there. I had the Burro Breakfast burrito and coffee. The burrito was steaming hot and delicious. The slab of grilled cheese (not a grilled cheese sandwich) was...great and so were the potatoes. Will certainly return.More

Zipper's obviously has a good location. It is not fine cuisine as to be expected. Over the last year they have raised their prices aggressively. It has become super-expensive for what it is. $11-$13 USD for a basic well drink and $14-$16 for a basic...cheeseburger? The price of alcohol has not risen much from their supppliers. Labor, food costs have risen and USD has declined in value but this is getting ridiculous.More
