Came heart for breakfast thinking it was a sit down diner, but instead it is a fast food style restaurant where you order at the counter and eat at picnic tables or carry out as we did. It took a long to get our food, but when we got it we enjoyed it. The omelette was made to order and the bacon was thick and crispy. Price was a good value.

This is the equivalent of Shoneys in Tennessee, The Carolinas and Kentucky. Good comfort food, fast and fresh.

Pulled pork was tasty, spare ribs tender and moist.

Everything was hot and fresh.

For a treat we had an apple and blueberry Napple-like a hot popover

People told me this is a "Hawaiian Denny's". So we stopped by one day because that was the only thing open on Thanksgiving day. Boy did I have the wrong impression. It's almost like inside of a McDonald. You walk up and order and take your food to a table to eat and clean out yourself. There is also a little bakery inside (Napoleon bakery). I ordered Korean Fried Chicken (expecting the food quality somewhere between Denny's and McDonald's) but no. It was finger licking delicious. Why does nowhere else in the states carry Korean Fried Chicken on their menu is beyond me. Absolutely fabulous, great flavor, cheap. Wow. I would give it a 5 star if the interior was a little more up to date but the fried chicken is definitely must eat.

Always stop by Zippy’s when I’m in town. Favorite is spaghetti with meat sauce and their chili and garlic bread!

The valet parking people suggested we go to Zippy's restaurant, but it would be a little bit more expensive. Had a bacon, onion, cheese omlete and hashbrowns with coffee. Coffee was excellent.
While consulting this week, ate lunch twice here.
