My mom lived in Hawaii for 13 years and when I told her I was going for a vacation she insisted that I eat at Zippy's as she remembered it as being so good. And I can relate to what she must have thought was delicious food when she was 20 and needed a cheap meal. My boyfriend and I ate here and where not all that impressed. the restaurant was clean and the service was fine. You order and then wait for your number to be called, take your food and seat yourself. But the food is not impressive. All in all it is what I expected it would be and I know it is a favorite of the locals.
