This cafe reminded me of the cafes we would eat at in Germany which makes sense when you consider Cincinnati s history; dark inside with separated booths and a bar area. The menu was simple, but good food and fair prices. The hamburgers were basic but tasty; I liked the simple approach to the burgers where the meat stood out rather than burying it with toppings. Friendly service. I could see how it could get very busy here because it is a very walkable location for the surrounding neighborhoods. Kids were welcome. We will definitely bring family here again.

Zips has the best burgers in town. You have to get there early at lunch in order to get a seat if you don't want to wait and you may have to sit with other people but it's so worth it.

Love everything about Zip's from the trains running around in the ceiling to the great burgers and the cool entry way. Always feel welcomed here and it is in a cool neighborhood.

The place is very small and seats maybe 30??? The atmoshere is great and the food awesome! My husband ordered a cheeseburger with a split smoked sausage on it and raved like it was the best thing he had ever tasted :) I ordered a cheeseburger deluxe and it was awesome. So worth it. My kids both loved it too.
