Zippy's opens on Maui
Here on Maui it's a really big deal - a new Zippy's restaurant. Talk about pent up demand! Some people have been going every day since they opened about a week ago. And aren't we special...Maui Zippy's prices are slightly higher than those on Oahu.
Zippy's is a fast food restaurant from Oahu, where they have 24 outlets. Zippy's was started by the Higa family in 1966, even before the first McDonald's opened in Hawaii. They specialize in Zip Pac (bento box), Zip Min (ramen) and Napples (turnovers), chili, local style food and Napoleon's Bakery.
They are located in Kahului, in a prime location on the corner of Hookele Street and the Mokulele Highway by King's Catheral. That's close to WalMart and Home Depot in case you don't know.
I have not yet ventured to the new restaurant, so no pictures yet. I can't even remember what the food is like, since eating at a Big Island Zippy's about 15 years ago. Locals are raving about it. I'm ready! UPDATE - here's a link to their Online Menu.
You can read all about it in the Maui News online, where it's been making headlines for days. Never mind Obama, we've got Zippy's!
And if you have a little pent up demand for a home on Maui....
