Visited this place for lunch. Ordered at the drive through window the Jumbo steak sandwich/wedges and kids meal with chicken nuggets. Paid roughly $15. Guy hands me the food and I ask him for the drinks (he's never even asked me what I wanted) I get told that the meals don't come with drinks. Now maybe this guy should visit the drive thru every once in awhile because I kid you not his face is level and about 1 inch away from the sign advertising the "Jumbo steak sandwich with 1 side and a 16 oz drink for $10". Are you kidding me? Anyway, he said I would have to pay for drinks and I just decided it wasn't worth the fight.

Got home to find that my "steak sandwich" was cold and raw. Now I am a rare steak eater so to gross me out the steak has to be really undercooked. Kid you not, the meat was still purple red and so full of grisle that I only got two bites. Then I unsuccessful tried to cut it with a steak knife only to find that there was nothing edible in this $10 piece of meat. I fed it to my dog.

My daughter opened up her meal to find 4 microwaved chicken bites (couldn't even be called a nugget) and no wedges. So for $5, I paid $1.25 per chicken bite, never got the wedges, never got the pop. I tried to call Zippy's for 30 minutes and couldn't get anyone to answer the phone. Guess they must have been busy (Yeah right).

I am a proud resident of Cedar Falls and try to support small business whenever possible but I will never offer my support or money to Zippy's again. What a rip off

My first impression was poor. I'm not sure if they were going for the charm of a dirty, dingy little shack, but you'd think they would be more concerned with health code. My friend told me I had to try to the ribs here, and I did. I expected them to be smoked, but they were obviously boiled. As a previous reviewer said, they were wet, doused in off-tasting liquid smoke, and they had a wierd consistancy. I'm confused as to how anyone could serve this style of rib, but to each their own I suppose.

I was disappointed with both the chicken and the ribs. BBQ sauce tasted like it was out of a bottle. The beans tasted like they were straight from the can. Can't remember what else we had. Guess that says it all. Will continue to make my own ribs at home.

The ribs were tasty enough, but curiously dripping wet -- with water more than sauce. When I stopped to think about it, I guess they were probably kept hot by boiling or steam or something, then coated with BBQ sauce just as they were served. I'm more used to ribs cooked to order (as opposed to ready to go at a drive-up window) and I wasn't prepared for them to be as soaked as they were.
