We cannot get enough of the great times at Zips Cafe. The food is always good, hot and fast. The service is always spectacular the wait to get in is hit or miss but well worth it. No table available no problem they serve the menu in the bar area, too. Hamburgers, Chili, ORings, French Fries Oh My.....

Five of us headed over for a a late lunch at this Cincinnati favorite. Everyone ordered the standard, a hamburger, fires and a beer. My sister and I love onion rings and opted to share an order. The burgers arrived promptly and were pronounced delicious. The onion rings were made of real onion but arrived cold. Our server removed them and shortly thereafter returned them hot and extra greasy- evidently they were put in the fryer again. Within minutes they were not only extra greasy but soggy. For the record, I only return things once if I can help it. There's a nice selection of beers on tap (it is Cincinnati after all, home to some great local beers). The first 2 beers we ordered were not available, attributed to supply chain problems. We really liked the old pub atmosphere, casual and dark, and a friendly sort of place.
