Restaurant anniversaries: Zippy’s Giant Burgers turns 6, Luciano’s Pizza marks 10th

Two anniversaries to note:

ZIPPY’S GIANT BURGERS: Six years ago today, Blaine Cook (center, photographed today with Nikki and Lyssie) and Rahel Cook opened Zippy’s Giant Burgers in Highland Park. (Here’s our opening-day story.) Though they moved to bigger digs in White Center three years later, we consider them an honorary “Wesseattle” business for life.

LUCIANO’S PIZZA: In case you didn’t already see the note in the WSB Forums – the little pizza joint next to the historic Admiral Theater has been open a decade, and is giving away pizza slices today to celebrate. Go see George and staff any time until 10 pm tonight.

    Zippy’s. . . . I love you so. As Yogi Berra once said “nobody goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.” I still love Zippy’s but wanted to stop the whiners (about having to wait for a fresh and yummy burger) in their tracks. “Nobody wants to eat in an empty restaurant.” (source unknown). Congratulations on 10 yummy years!

    Love that Zip’s! My son’s favorite spot too. Though he’s still jonesing for those little gummy cheesburgers candies that he got with his first lil’ Zip’s Wacky Meals! Awesome spot, thanks Zippy’s crew

    Will drive from North Admiral to ZIPPY’S. Just
    wish you were closer but, I do not mind the drive.

    Zippy’s: if you make a west Seattle location, I promise to eat there once per week for the rest of my life.

Sorry, comment time is over.
