the burger is unique, well made and a favorite of mine (and Cincinnati, always rated high). the train going around the top of the restaurant is... mesmerizing for some reason.

If you order anything other than a Zips Burger with cheese, you have failed yourself.

You want a perfect hamburger? You're on the east side of Cincinnati? GO HERE! They make about the most perfect hamburger you'll find anywhere. Nothing fancy about it, just a solid great burger. Bring the kids and they can be entertained by the toy train circling the ceiling. It's not a very big place, so if going for lunch, go early.

One of the first places I ate when I moved to Cincinnati, and I've been coming back ever since. Place is always busy so be prepared to sit at a table with people you may not know or wait a while for a booth. But man, this place is super fun, and the burgers are delicious.

It's simple. There's a reason why Zip's has been around as long as it has. They have perfected the simple burger. Get here early on weekends, unless you feel like a wait.

The burger and chili are decent... I don't quite understand the hype of this place. However, I'm a topping lover and their known for their simple burger. The vibe inside is nice though... Sorry, Zip's.

Perfect cheeseburger every time, and don't skip out on the Chili. The only con is the size of this space because it's always so packed. If I'm by myself I'll post up at the bar or wait for a seat, but if I'm with the family we typically pass this up during prime times.

Awesome burger! And a classic place to hang out in Mt. Lookout -- Zip's has been around for almost 90 years, and has been serving Cincinnati's favorite burger for all that time.

This is my favorite burger in Cincinnati, hands down. It's simple but perfectly executed. They have a pretty good selection of beer now too, which is always a plus. Pro tip: Ask for crispy onions on your burger!
