The menu is highly overwhelming because there's Italian, Asian, Polynesian, American and like 5 other ethnicities of food. I went with a "signature" dish, the Zip Men and enjoyed it. A soup with noodles, meat, wontons, and shrimp. Beware of the spicy mustard. It's made with wasabi, I'm a dipper, not a dabber. Cleared my sinuses in 1.2 seconds. And then I went back for... More

Stopped for a quick lunch while apartment hunting. Our waitress, Emjay, was wonderful. She gave us all kinds of local information. Love her! Oh yeah...the food was fun,too.

We love going to Zippy's as our "go to" place when we aren't able to prepare a quick meal at home. We often get their Chilli as it is what Zippy's is known for. For people that grew up in Hawaii, the Chilli is different from the mainland but for locals it is considered "comfort food" especially when paired with... More

I have always loved Zippy's. Not fancy, but it is sooo good. If only we had one on the East Coast. It's always my first stop for food when I arrive on Oahu

This place is great!! There is so much to choose from and it's not fast food quality although it's quick! Bakery is a major plus, try the donuts!

One of the many Zippy's on Kam Hwy on Oahu especially the Pearl City area. Guess on the leeward site everyone love's Zippy's. Love their bakery, and comfort foods.

Zippys is a very unique and delicious restaurant chain on Oahu. Vast menu and the Napoleon bakery is amazing as well. I recommend the chili and chicken plate or a Zip Pac. From Napoleons I recommend the Ensemada. This is also the perfect place for breakfast. If you are visting Hawaii you can not miss this place.

We never dine in at this Zippy's but we pick up take-out sushi from the Sushi Bar here and our last take out from this past weekend was as good as always. Of course, cannot compare it with Sushi Sasabune but the sushi here is pretty good. The California Roll (real crabs!) and the unagi are also good. Miso soup... More

One will never be disappointed at Zippy's. They offer multiple options and regularly offer specials. Prices can be affordable - depending what you order. My favorite is garlic chicken special. They have a children's menu too for dining in. Wish they also offered a senior menu. Serving size is OK - some items are over priced. Service is good -... More
