Zippy's Restaurant

Aiea, HI
 

Another Poor Value

I came here because I was nearby shopping at the nearby mall. This location is like the others.

Hamburger Steak

I ordered the hamburger steak here as I use that as my gauge of how good a drive in or family restaurant is. The hamburger steak costs the same as the other Zippy’s of course, pretty high. The hamburger patty was small and did not taste great. The gravy was skimpy. They could have added more. The mac salad was not good. In comparison to Waiakamilo Drive In, this place stinks. For a little over five dollars you get TWO patties. Waikamilo Drive In is not as nice looking as this place but you get a whole lot more value for your hard earned money.

Poor Value, Again

This Zippy’s did not buck the trend for me. It still gave small portions for the price.

Hamburger Steak

I have been trying to find a Zippy’s that I can go to to get my hamburger steak fix. I have not found one yet. This one was the same. One small patty. You’d think one Zippy’s would give a little more. That didn’t happen. For the price I think two patties would be reasonable considering how small the patty is. This Zippy’s, though, look nicer than the others.

Poor Value

I came here because I was passing by to do my banking. Hoping to find a Zippy’s that actually gave more for my hard earned money I came away disappointed yet again.

Hamburger Steak

I have pretty much tried all of the Zippy’s and this one was the same. The only difference is that it was not as nice looking as the rest. It’s pretty much as Kalihi as you can get. The hamburger steak, again, was small. For the price they should give two patties. Rice and macaroni are cheap. I am really disappointed with Zippy’s. I think I’ll stick with Waiakamilo Drive In for my hamburger steak fix. I can get two patties for a little over five bucks. And it is a mini!

Nothing New, Just More Poor Value

This Zippy’s was pretty much like the others. More poor value for the money.

Hamburger Steak

Still looking for a decent hamburger steak plate at Zippy’s I found more of the same, poor value for the money. The patty was small. They should put in two patties considering the size and price. Rice and macaroni are cheap staples. They must rake in a lot of money with the way the overprice their food.

And Yet, Another Poor Value

The worse Zippy’s I have gone to.

Hamburger Steak

I ordered the hamburger steak here as it was late and every place else was closed for the day. The hamburger steak patty was small. It came with two scoops rice and a scoop of macaroni salad. The hamburger steak patty tasted horrible. I have had better sized patties in minis at other places such as Waiakamilo Drive In. There was something obviously wrong with the patty here. I won’t be coming here any more. That’s for sure.

Yet, Another Disappointment

So far I have yet to find a Zippy’s that served a reasonable portion for the price.

Hamburger Steak

I was very disappointed with the hamburger steak. I was expecting better as this location is very popular. The patty was the same small sized portion. I have had hamburger steak patties at places like Waiakamilo Drive that were bigger (two patties) in a mini. It came with two scoops rice and a macaroni salad. They also could put more gravy on that thing. I saw a special on the soft drink and that is IF you buy one of their meals. I could go to Mcdonalds and buy a soft drink for ninety-nine cents and I wouldn’t have to buy anything else. What a rip off Zippy’s is. Once you factor in the drink you end up spending ten bucks for something that should be seven bucks WITH the drink. Rice is cheap. So is macaroni.

Again, Another Poor Value in the Zippy's Chain

I have tried their beef curry stew and other local favorites and still have yet to find one that is actually worth the price.

Beef Curry Stew

I had the beef curry stew here in hopes of finding one that was worth it. It was a disappointment yet again. I also had their mini bento and that was a disappointment. The bento was a bit better but the pieces were small. I also had that mini chili and frank plate and was surprised to find a half a hot dog! Wow! How chintzy can you get with the portions.

Still Poor Value

Zippy’s has always been small on value to me. I still have yet to find a Zippy’s that serves a more reasonable portion.

Beef Curry Stew

I have had the beef stew here and it was the same as the other Zippy’s. Skimpy on the beef. Where’s the beef? Anyway, I tried their chicken katsu here and, as usual, came away with one thing in mind. Poor value. I ordered the mini version and it was mini in every sense of the word. It had only five small slices of chicken. Not even enough to make one chicken thigh sized portion. It was a real rip off.

Another Poor Value

I have been trying out the Zippy’s locations and still have not found one that bucked the trend. Zippy’s is still a poor value when it comes to price.

Beef Curry Stew

I ordered the beef curry stew as I love this dish. The stew had very little in the way of beef. It came with the usual two scoops rice and a scoop of macaroni salad. I have had the hamburger steak and that, too, was skimpy. The patty was so small. I have had mini hamburger steak at other places that were bigger.

Poor Value

Zippy’s has always been quite pricey for what you get. And this Zippy’s did not break the trend for me.

Beef Curry Stew

The beef curry stew had only three small pieces of beef in it. I didn’t realize it until I brought home the food. Had I still been at the restaurant I would have brought it back.
