We stopped by Zippy's for an early breakfast on our way to Pearl Harbor. I would have to say it is darn good breakfast food served quickly (at least by Hawaiian standards for quickness). I ordered the Spam and eggs served with white rice. I...More

Zippy's chili & rice is to Hawaii what the Tommy chili-cheeseburger is L.A. It's greasy, artery clogging great chili. Health nuts stay away. I've also had their fried chicken which was okay. My son really liked the mushroom burger and had it twice. The teri-burger...More

Zippy's is Hawaii's version of Dennys with a local twist. The food and prices are excellent. This is where the locals eat. Their chili is a popular local staple, espcially when combined with the hot dog--"chili frank plate." The "Zip Pack" is a local version...More

I had avoided this place because the menu looked so unhealthy that I figured it didn't taste great. However, when I failed to locate my intended restaurant, I stopped in at Zippy's for breakfast around 630. The place had a lot of locals, mostly men...More
