Zippy’s Giant Burgers serves its first White Center customers

WCN contributor Deanie Schwarz sends in the proof – customers are in the house and burgers are being served at Zippy’s Giant Burgers (9614 14th SW), which moved from West Seattle after three years of ever-increasing popularity. They had hoped to open the new location a month sooner, but permit/inspection challenges were cited for the delays – all behind them now.

ADDED MONDAY EVENING: The dinner rush is out the door:

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). The King Lou Lou is named for Luis Jimenez, one of the creative stars of Zippy’s kitchen.

  1. Yes! Finally open! We had the Zip Burger with Cheese, onion rings & shake. And it was like I remember from a burger joint in Federal Way (on 99) in about 1960 which I’ve used as my baseline for burgers ever since. No one measured up to this high standard until Zippy’s! And by 11 AM they were getting on the full side but still had room unlike their old digs. And still empty parking spots as well!

  2. Yes! Zippy’s is open! We had a Zip Burger w/cheese, onion rings & chocolate shake along with a blue cream soda. Took me back to a burger joint in Federal Way in about 1960/61 which I’ve used as a benchmark ever since and Zippy’s hit it. By 11 AM it was starting to get crowded but still room unlike their old digs. Telephone was ringing off the hook. And parking spots to spare as well!

  3. Won’t be able to tear the boyfriend away from this place for a while. Zippy’s is our favorite, but I’m gaga for the No. 11. The best!

  4. WOO HOO! I gotta zip on over there!

  5. Can’t wait to go there! I wonder if they offer a lettuce wrap in place of buns for wheat intolerant people.
