“Quintessential Drive-In Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

What can I say - It's Zips! This particular Zips is at the top of the mark for the chain.

And I've been a regular customer at the first original Zips on Columbia Drive (in Kennewick of course) since the 1960's Cheney's Zip's has Lotsa staff at your service. The building is clean and constantly being updated. Comfortable seating, free WiFi, a huge menu, open 24-7.

Be sure to remember that there is a lot of good stuff that is not even on the menu. Don't ask me why - my only guess it is a bit of corporate foolishness creeping in trying to screw-up a good thing. Our favorite burger is one of the "not-on-the-menu" variety. The Tillamook Bacon Cheddar Burger with a pile of Tater Tots is da Bomb!

Be sure to get a Hurricane for your sweet tooth.

“Nice burger joint open 24/7”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Zip's has Breakfast at a good economical price. The bacon burger is a excellent choice as well as their tub of fries. They don't mind if you go back and fill your cup to finish the meal.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Zips is a regular stop for us for breakfast. Yes it is a drive-in but they put out a decent breakfast quickly. Kind of weird to walk up to the counter and order breakfast but they have all the regular fare and it's reasonably priced. They will refill your coffee cups and the convenience of quickly prepared favorites is great! All the favorites are there :pancakes, omelettes, chicken fried steak and of course biscuits and gravy. We like this convenient location. It could use a little polishing up.

“Great College Town Burger Joint!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2009

The food here is good, and relatively decently priced. Large portions, and they have value options.

I've eaten here many times, and I've been happy with it for the most part. Sometimes the kids working behind the counter are a little bit unprofessional, but they seem to be enjoying themselves, and they are very helpful, so it's not really any inconvenience to the customers.

This particular Zips is open 24 hours, and it has free WiFi, so it's great for college kids who are studying late into the night. They deliver within the city limits, but the hours for delivery are limited, and I'm not sure exactly what the hours for that are.

The only thing I would suggest is that if you ask for any extra sauces while you're using the drive-through, check to make sure that they put the sauces in the bag before you drive away. I'm not sure why, but it seems like most times I went through the drive through, they didn't put the extra sauces in, and sometimes didn't put sauces in at all.

It's been a while since I've eaten there, but I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good burger in Cheney.
