Don't know about other meals, but breakfast is superb. Full menu, selections of cofee, order at the counter. Food was delivered to our table very quickly. Very tasty.

I love Zips. Great coffee and real breakfast on real plates in the morning. Buckets of fries, fried mushrooms, and burgers in the evenings. WiFi and plugs in the booths for the techies or kids tablets.

First went to Zip's in the 80's and it is, happily, still the same. All offerings tasted great and were prepared quickly. Still, I hate to think of the amount of saturated fat in the "Salad Burger" with both mayo AND Thousand Island dressing!

If you're looking for a delicious breakfast you've come to the right place. Quick, efficient, and friendly service and a huge tasty meal at a good price. Very attentive waitstaff and a wonderful overall experience.

Staff was friendly & helpful. Burgers, chicken strips, fries were very good. Banana milkshake was fantastic. The breading on the cod was good but the cod was mushy & watery. Would not order that again. Table needed wiped down. Good fast food, all in all.

Enjoyed the burger. Service was fast, food was hot and the restaurant was clean. Zips became my favorite while I was there.

Ice cream here is a really good value. My kids love the "bucket of fries", and the burgers are about average. Nothing special but a quick fill up. Better than McDonalds though! Weekend breakfast isn't bad for a drive through fast food restaurant. Self serve...More

Being one of the oldest and only hamburger places in Cheney, you would think this would be the best food in the area. WRONG! The ONLY thing good about this burger joint is it gives the old timers in town a safe place to go...More

Your review is quite upsetting and seems more like a personal attack towards me than anything else. I wish I could respond in a way that would help solve a problem. Our family has been doing business in Cheney for almost 37 years. We care...More

My apology to the Cheney location. My review is applicable to the Richland WA locations. If I could move the review to the Fowler and Lee stores I would. Again I apologize.
