Miz Zips Cafe
The quintessential Route 66 roadhouse, this is the place any road-weary traveler will want to stop for good, no-nonsense home cooking. Even if you're not on the road, you'll want to stop by anyway. The sassy service, no-frills eats and quaint atmosphere are truly priceless. As you might expect, breakfast is a big thing here featuring made-from-scratch pancakes and the usual diner fare. The fries are freshly cut, and the proprietors butcher their own meats for extra juicy burgers and steaks.
Went there Saturday night, had the Zip burgers because of the earlier review. Boy was he off the mark, nothing like a Big Boy burger, not even close. The fries were great fresh cut not frozen, the other sides were lalso good, the coleslaw and beans (pinto, not baked). I might go back but I would not drive back just for dinner. Next time I might try the breakfast.
Miz Zip's features home-cooked (not defrosted) food and a friendly atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable, in part because they don't accept credit cards. Of particular note are the home-made pies, which change daily. Good, solid food, at a good price.
This is the our favorite place in Flagstaff for good reasonable priced food with the atmosphere of an original 50s local restaurant on old Route 66. Gone now is the neon sign and you have to look for it as you can easily drive by. This is a place where locals go, some every day, where they can get good quality food. Their specialty is a Zip Burger which is still under $4.00 with fries (or salad, soup, etc). If you loved the original Big Boy's, you will love the Zip Burgers. The menu is limited but we found this place the best place in Flagstaff to have a great steak at an inexpensive price. If you get there late, they might be out of their steaks as they only cut so many a day. Don't look for fancy tables or elegant china here. It is the kind of restaurant where they remember you and their is always a good mix of regulars and tourists. Don't dress up to go here, the workers and families sit next to each other at the large tables. Fresh pies daily and good breakfasts. They still have an original counter with stools and you can see the people working in the kitchen. This is the type of restaurant you had in your town before the days of fast food chains.
