Looking for lunch and Highway inn too crowded and no parking. Then on our way to Nico's, we saw Zippy's. The food was just as good and the service was friendly. The food came out quick and was happy for the rest of the day.

It's a Zippys restaurant so you know what you are getting. The food was good. The restaurant was clean. The staff was friendly. Every time we travel to Oahu we go here at least once or twice. Good times.

Zippy's restaurant chain is where the locals go to "grind" (eat) with friends and family. You can order at the fast food counter or be served in their restaurant. The menus at all of the Zippy's are the same. Our number one favorite Zippy's is...More

So we took the family here tonight because everyone seems to rave about this place. I would describe our service in general as very poor. We waited to be seated for 10 minutes before anyone even noticed us and when someone did it, it was...More

Absolutely mouthwatering Malasadas! The best! I had never had one even though it was my second visit to Honolulu. I had read about them and then found myself stuck, waiting for a taxi when I spotted Zippy's. We had to go check it out and...More
