ZIPPY'S KING STREET - HONOLULU, HAWAII


ZIPPY'S KING STREET
HONOLULU, HAWAII 

Zippy's is an institution in Hawaii.  If you live in Hawaii, chances are you grew up eating at Zippy's or have dined there many times.  I am not a big Zippy's guy, but I have eaten my share of meals here.  Mostly business lunches because they are convenient and efficient.  You can spend an hour here or get in and out fast.  Most Zippy's have a casual take out area and a dining room with table service.  The dining room on King Street is Old School and I like it.  While most patrons here seem to be over 60, I am quite comfortable sitting in a booth and enjoying the old Hawaii coffee house charm.  I have a business associate and friend who loves Zippy's.  He is a meat and rice guy who doesn't go near vegetables.  He ordered the Beef Stew and I ordered the Fried Chicken and Chili Combo.  Both are around $12 with the "Complete Meal".  The Complete Meal includes soup or salad, large drink and your choice of ice cream, pie or cake for dessert.  I like Zippy's Fried Chicken and Zippy's Chili.  My combo was great and my friend loved his Beef Stew.  The Fried Chicken was crispy on the outside and moist inside.  The Chili is legendary in Hawaii.  I like it, but it is not the best in the world.  Zippy's on King dining room takes you back to the good old days when coffee shops were all around the city.  Now it is mostly chains like the mainland.  Nice to dine here among some of the nicest senior citizens in Honolulu.  I am getting close to getting my Senior Discount Card and feeling right at home having coffee here for hours.
