Zippy's is a local favorite coffee shop establishment. They are located everywhere. Go here to taste the "locals" favorite dishes. Spam musubi, loco moco, chili and rice, beef stew and rice, etc. their breakfast menu also features local flavors. I find their chili and pancakes as outstanding.

My last visit to a Zippy's was years ago in the Kaimuki area eating outdoors on a picnic table?? Was in the area shopping at Don Quixote and decided to go for a quick bite. Had the chili loco moco......absolutely delish and hit the spot. The chili is still da bomb.

I visit the islands here and there, and when I come to Hawaii I try to hit a Zippy's once or twice while I am there. It is local fast food, you can eat in or take out. A few years ago I would visit Byron's Drive Inn close to the airport, but since that closed, it is Zippy's. The... More

Local chain with standard fare. Had a somewhat overpriced salad for its size. Seemed fresh but nothing special. I go to Zippy's when I can't think of anyplace else.

After hearing how good they were, went in search of them! Got a dozen-- and I must say, when warm they are delicious; however, once cold, not good at all!

Went here for breakfast and the food was alright. Got the corned beef haah and was not very good. The service was alright but slow some of the time. The eggs were over cooked. This was not a very pleasant visit when it comes to service and food quality. If you need something fast and don't mind about the quality... More

Zippy's is kind of a local restaurant with home style touch. The food is tasty and portions are plentiful. Service is friendly and pleasant. Prices are reasonable and easy on the pocket book. The menu is extensive from breakfast to dinner and desert. The fast food side offers pretty much the same items. The fried chicken and chilling is kind... More

We have not dined in at this Zippy's but we come here to get take out at least 2 to 3 times a month (more recently, the other evening) and it's always a good experience. Cannot go wrong with the Zippy's fried chicken, chili and Portuguese Bean Soup. This past summer, we were unhappy with the chili -- it was... More

Service was quick. My husband had scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns. The bacon was the best part - cooked just the way I love it. My egg white omelet, even without cheese was a bit too greasy for my taste. The sticky rice was awesome. My favorite part was Napoleon's Bakery.

I hope that not just locales try Zippy's because whenever we visit Honolulu , we HAVE to try ZIPPY's ! It's so much fun and tasty ! Don't expect more, it's just fast food!!! We love the Ox tail soup ( even for the price) they are serious with the meat ( oh yes !) mushrooms and vegetables. Tourists should... More
