Zip's Cafe is a location that has been one of the icons of Cincinnati hamburger restaurants for nearly a century now (actually just celebrated 90 years). The statement often imitated but never duplicated is definitely true when it comes to this place. Don't let the size fool you Zip's Cafe packs them in and leaves guest coming back for more every time.

What We Like Most About Zip's

We talked in the Top 7 Hamburger Restaurants in Cincinnati about our favorite burger and Zip's Cafe fan favorite is always the Double Zip Burger. All burgers come with super fresh onions, lettuce, tomato, and bacon lovers don't forget to add the bacon. Nothing is going to sway our opinion that Zip's Cafe has the best burger in Cincinnati. Zip's has simple but perfect execution of what a burger should be.

Chili lovers also should get a bowl of their Famous Cincinnati Chili. Chili can have cheese, sour cream, and onion added which we say - yes, yes, yes.

Don't forget to add Zip's Cafe famous thin cut fries with cheese to your burgers, great combo that will leave you wanting more. 

What We Don't Like

The Girth Burger is a Zip's fan favorite burger but we didn't love it. While we love the concept of what Zip's Cafe is trying to do, we have found that the Mettwurst when added to the burger for us does not prove to be a great combination. Then again, we will stick with the Chili as starter and the Double Zip Burger as meal. 

Our Rating Out Of 10 Stars - 9.5 Stars

This is a great convenient Mt. Lookout location that is going to provide you with a great experience, fantastic views getting to the restaurant and once you arrive awesome food. It is easy to see why Zip's won our overall #1 rating of the Top 7 Burger Restaurants in Cincinnati. (See Our Complete Top 7 Burger List).
