Zippy’s Giant Burgers to open its new location Tuesday at 10:30 am

The wait is almost over, for fans of Zippy’s Giant Burgers. West Seattle Blog/White Center Now contributor Deanie Schwarz has just spoken to Zippy’s proprietor Blaine Cook, who says the opening date/time is officially set – next Tuesday (May 31st), 10:30 am. Zippy’s left its original location in Highland Park on April 16th, amid much uncertainty that followed the building’s foreclosure (its previous owner ran the now-closed SeaMart store on site), and had hoped to reopen in White Center about a week and a half later, but challenges with permits and upgrades stretched the time far beyond what they had expected and hoped for. As first reported here in February, the new location is at 9614 14th SW.

    Additional ways to kill your time… Ms. Pacman, Fish Bait Pinball, (possibly a photo booth) and if you drink beer… BEER!
    And now we take cash and credit!
    Mr. and Ms. Zippy!

    OMG, I wonder what would happen if they put a Zippys in the new Trader Joes … apparently, that would be the real Rapture for many WSB readers!

  • Ssf May 26, 2011 (10:05 pm)

    I’m so glad they will take plastic now. I’ve actually haven’t tried them yet because either had no cash or had cash and they weren’t open. Looking forward to trying it.

    When I ate at the last location, I felt like the staff was rude and burgers way too expensive.

  • Jasperblu May 28, 2011 (9:03 am)

    Can’t wait!

  • Cclarue May 28, 2011 (9:05 am)
