Hawaii Kai on a weekend morning, a busy Zippy's and a long wait for a table, then your order gets mixed up and the service is slow. Not an auspicious start but the food is hot,there's lots of it and it's pretty tasty as well. These Hawaiian versions of Denny's are spread around the island and make a pretty safe bet for a quick and relatively inexpensive meal. They have a baked goods section with pies, cakes and that delicious standby - malasadas (not as good as Leonard's in Kapahulu). Chili & rice is a great fill me up warmer, Try the Loko Moko - a combination of rice, hamburger patty,eggs and brown gravy - a real heart stopper - literally. There is something for everyone on the menu, take a good look at the menu and try something different than what you would have at home. Live on the edge. And enjoy!
Komo Mai!

You will find these all over and it is where locals go not visitors. If you area tourist you will have no idea what most people are ordering - but be brave! Try chili over rice, or Mahi sandwich (fried , crunchy , fresh fish). Or just point to something with a weird name and enjoy it! Very cheap an d high quality Great for lunch.

Zippy's is an Island institution. Reminds me a bit of Denny's, only the food is Hawaiian Style. Just about everything you could want at a more reasonable price. And, you've got to have a slice of their pie.

I've dined at this Zippy's exactly once, with local family, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also stopped by to take in the breakfast menu several times, but chickened out each time. To mainland taste buds (and your cardiologist's sensibilities), Zippy's breakfast menu reads like a Stephen King novella. You have to see it to believe it.

Lunch and dinner are a different matter. I was astounded at the menu variety offered by this bustling, covered-but-open-air eatery. Take the opportunity to indulge your culinary fantasies by ordering inexpensive dishes that don't match. I enjoyed a small serving of spaghetti with meat sauce and a chicken leg and thigh, which were just perfect for me at that moment in time. That Zippy's is nailed to a bakery with treats that will make your eyes roll back in your head is a bonus for those with fast metabolisms. I'm not one of those fortunates, but I enjoy browsing.
