Burgers and other bar grub is great. Named one of the best burger joints in Cincy. Place is small so plan on a little wait. TGIF is great at Zips. One of my favorites

The food at Zips is OK. I have had better burgers many other places, but put the great french fries and the atmosphere (like the model train) with it and you have a fun neighborhood place. The burgers only come one preparation so forget the...More

I hadn't been to Zip's in a few years when we decided to go with a friend. It was decent, but the burgers really aren't anything special. I know that they are consistently rated one of the top burgers in Cincinnati and I would have...More

Zip burgers are good, but nothing to write home about. I've eaten there several times - once before I knew of their "best burgers" reputation and then several times afterwards. I was shocked when I heard people raving about the burgers. They are not bad,...More

Any time we are in the area, we make it a point to stop by Zips. Their burgers are hot, juicy and delicious. Although I can never resist ordering their burgers, their chili is good on a really cold day. Onion rings are a great...More
