I love Zips. Great coffee and real breakfast on real plates in the morning. Buckets of fries, fried mushrooms, and burgers in the evenings. WiFi and plugs in the booths for the techies or kids tablets.

First went to Zip's in the 80's and it is, happily, still the same. All offerings tasted great and were prepared quickly. Still, I hate to think of the amount of saturated fat in the "Salad Burger" with both mayo AND Thousand Island dressing!

If you're looking for a delicious breakfast you've come to the right place. Quick, efficient, and friendly service and a huge tasty meal at a good price. Very attentive waitstaff and a wonderful overall experience.

Staff was friendly & helpful. Burgers, chicken strips, fries were very good. Banana milkshake was fantastic. The breading on the cod was good but the cod was mushy & watery. Would not order that again. Table needed wiped down. Good fast food, all in all.

Great Corn Dogs & I have always received fast service . I go often when I'm in a hurry to pick up food or even for a little snack. Always love their shakes

Enjoyed the burger. Service was fast, food was hot and the restaurant was clean. Zips became my favorite while I was there.

Ice cream here is a really good value. My kids love the "bucket of fries", and the burgers are about average. Nothing special but a quick fill up. Better than McDonalds though! Weekend breakfast isn't bad for a drive through fast food restaurant. Self serve coffee is a bonus! Its a great mainstay for Cheney.

Being one of the oldest and only hamburger places in Cheney, you would think this would be the best food in the area. WRONG! The ONLY thing good about this burger joint is it gives the old timers in town a safe place to go for coffee and talk in the morning. Portions are very small, NO TASTE with any... More

Your review is quite upsetting and seems more like a personal attack towards me than anything else. I wish I could respond in a way that would help solve a problem. Our family has been doing business in Cheney for almost 37 years. We care about this community and our customers. Our portions sizes and menu items have not changed... More

I have eaten at Zips many times! They have a variety of burgers and tell you what is in each! I am pretty easy and like a original cheese burger with fries! When my husband goes--he enjoys the fish sandwich.. It is an easy in and out if driving through, or quick visit if dining in! I would recommend it... More
