We felt like fish out of water since we were the only "white" folks there. It is definitely a local place. It has a large menu but the food was like Denny's. glad we went but wont go back.

My wife and I have driven by Zippy's a number of times during our most recent 3 week stay on Maui. It looks like an upscale Denny's-type eatery. But the thing that compelled us to stop in today (after a day trip to Oahu) when driving from the airport is what we have been seeing EVERY time we have driven by---a full, full parking lot. Any time of day and night. A FULL parking lot. Good sign, methinks. Well, we were not disappointed. The extensive and not-run-of-the-mill menu made it hard to choose from: Pork with Eggplant? Asian noodle? Man, great menu. The food was great---I had a simple Egg and Bacon sandwich. My wife had the spaghetti. Total tab? $17.41! Almost unheard of in the islands.
Very impressive. And their on-sight bakery has tons of amazing pastries, cakes and pies. Zippy's is really popular in Oahu where there are 15 or 20 on that island. This is the only one outside of Oahu. Save major bucks and eat well, too. Hey, I like Ruth's Chris as much as anyone. But for great home-cooked, great priced meals you can't beat Zippy's anywhere on Maui.

Hawaiian fast food - that is to say, nto entirely fast, but big portions and tasty. The food has an Asian feel, but decidedly Hawaiian. No frills, just good food.

Recommend the korean chicken, or any of the combo boxes.

I usually takeout but this time I took family out to the restaurant side at night and we got seated in the back. Almost near the restroom.Took forever to be noticed. Nice waitress, though. I got locomoco that was hard as heck and egg was too runny,almost streaming down!and cold! Dinner companion had better luck! saimin in a fancy vessel; it was in a silver bucket. Pretty snazzy! tasted great! should have ordered that myself! took too long to even get a drink. The place was getting packed and the there was no view but of the nearby restroom. Who wants a view of that while they are eating? decent selection of baked goods. love the Orange Bang and the lilikoi juice! next time, I am just gonna takeout!
