Called in an order only to wait 35 mins. because counter people didn't check a bagged order ready to call out to pick up. Went home to eat and only to find out that half the order was wrong (double whammy)!

Was hungry, ordered the spaghetti with parmesan cheese on the side and garlic bread. A small portuguese bean soup starter. Very filling and priced fairly.

Have had lunch here a few times. The service is good and the food is ordinary. The portions are generous, but the prices are a bit high.

If you're ready for some comfort food and want to get away from the exotic restaurants, come to Zippy's. great waitstaff, large menu, good prices. If you're lucky, you'll be there when Matthew is there, and you'll be treated to a ukelele seranade. Fun place!

We found this to be a cut above average for this town. After two weeks of checking out various local eateries we found this one to be the most enjoyable for ambience, cleanliness, variety and selection. It's in the mall and has a bakery attached...More

Zippy's is the equivalent of a Hawaiian Denny's, but way better!!!!! They're located primarily on Oahu, with a couple of locations on other islands. The Zippy's in Hilo is the only on the Big Island, it's located at the mall. The food is really good...More

I don't know about anyone else, but when I go out to eat, it's a treat! Our family takes turns to select someplace and we all have a usually pleasant event..including the food. Well, I'm sorry to say Zippy's has been just really sad. We...More
