For the “won’t believe it till we see it” contingent – this photo is proof, Zippy’s Giant Burgers is indeed open for business in White Center (9614 14th SW).
ADDED 12:25 PM: More scenes from (re)opening day:
The photo is by WSB/White Center Now contributor Deanie Schwarz, who caught Steve Vodopich and Kenan Cetincelik, lifelong West Seattle buddies, working on the first Big Mouth orders of the day. Three patties! But it isn’t the biggest burger at Zippy’s; that would be the King Lou Lou (added ahead – see somebody try one of those!).
Deanie also talked to Bonnie Brower of Alki Point, who says she had been calling Zippy’s phone number every few days to check when they would open, and was thrilled to have a Li’l Royale for breakfast today: “It’s that first bite of grilled chuck that puts me over the top every time.”
ADDED 6:10 PM: The dinner rush is out the door, as WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand just discovered:
Earlier, Deanie caught Jon Talmadge tackling a King Lou Lou – the truly “giant” burger now on the Zippy’s menu:
The King Lou Lou is a dine-in-only option, which’ll cost you $14 and change. Four patties, eight pieces of bacon, grilled onions, quadruple cheese, chipotle mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato. Topped with a crown (Lil Zip w/cheese). Named for Luis Jimenez, one of the creative stars of Zippy’s kitchen.
