We did not dine in the restaurant but ordered food to take away. They have so much food choices in their menu and the price is really affordable especially if your traveling with a large group. The food taste great and the presentation is nice.

Had chilli fried chicken meal and sampled teriyaki chicken from wife's plate. All were awesome. To kick off desert got 2 donuts from napoleons, which were even better than the meal. Recommend flake and glazed donuts!

Zippys is the hangout after the clubs....Gotta fill the belly with local grinds. The Chili is always a winner and it make you feel good. Good location and plenty portions.

Consistently good food at a reasonable price. Menu offerings have the local favorites to hamburgers and more. This location requires you to order at the counter and listen for your order number to be called.
