What You'll Get
The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Today’s Groupon offers a remedy for that tragic misconception: for $7, you get $15 worth of big burgers and fries at Zippy’s Giant Burgers and Fries.
Zippy’s Giant Burgers boasts a simple menu of ginormous gobs of burger meat made from fresh, locally supplied ingredients and ground on-site daily from 100% chuck. Burgers are offered in a range of sizes and with standard optional patty-toppers (five kinds of cheese, bacon, and hot peppers, $0.75 each), and start with the wee 3-ounce Lil’ Zips ($2.25+) and the standard 5-ounce Zip Burger ($4.25+). Heartier appetites can get in a decade's worth of hamburgery before embarking on an intergalactic voyage with the 10-ounce, two-patty Zip Royale ($6.50) or the triple-layered Big Mouth ($7.75). The black bean burger ($4.75), meanwhile, promises to cause spontaneous salivation in the hungry herbivoyeur secretly watching you through the eatery’s front windows. Fries ($1.50) and onion rings ($1.50), hand-dipped ice cream cones ($1.50), milk shakes ($3.50), and floats ($3.25) all provide ideal moons to your small planet of a burger.
The eatery is a happy-making place to stop in for a quick meal on the go before returning to the dust cloud of fighting cartoon characters, as well as a worthy arena for an impromptu soda-guzzling contest, thanks to its more than 20 different flavors of vintage pop ($1.50). So stop by for a savory meal of an oversized American classic at Zippy's Giant Burgers and Fries.
Zippy's is a cash-only restaurant; any amount you owe past what your Groupon is worth must be in cash.
- …truly, the ZIP BURGER, $5.50, a griddle-burnt patty topped with bacon and American cheese between a secret sauce–slathered Franz bun is a classic burger lover’s ideal. – Seattle Metropolitan
- Zippy's Giant Burgers, located in the Highland Park neighborhood of West Seattle in a spot that used to be a teriyaki restaurant, serves up juicy burgers on buns that are as soft as pillows. The French fries actually taste like potatoes; shakes come with hand-scooped ice cream; and burgers are made from house-ground beef, hand-formed into patties and served in wax-paper pockets.. – Danny O'Neil, Seattle Times
- …the nearly two-year-old, nostalgia-thick hole-in-the-wall serves arguably the best burgers in the entire city, not just the peninsula (and yes, there are lines out the door). – Seattle Weekly
