Excellent baked goods. Wanted to find a locals place and did we ever. Danishes, pies, donuts, and cakes. Not to mention a regular menu of traditional items. Extremely friendly staff welcomed us. Great job and welcoming experience with great quality.

Had a fast food feel. Food is Hawaiian and good. If your in a hurry its a good fit. If you have the time go to a local family owned plate lunch. Zippys is good and worth a try.

Very nice place to grab a bite to eat. The food was good and well prepared. It is a chain restraunt, but had that single owner mom and pop feel. We enjoyed very much and recommend.

We thought we try a Zippy's, but it is a place only old folks would like. The food is just ok. The men's bathroom was in disrepair. We tried a Zippy's.

Some local friends told us we had to try a plate lunch at zippy's. I guess they are known for their plate lunches,fried chicken and chili. Our party ordered a variety of things and I can say this.....don't order a hamburger...WAY too many other choices...More

Service was great. Fried chicken was awful. It was old and bloody. Too bad as they really where the best. I am not sure if it was cooked to order!
