Q13 Fox anchors tip their hat to Zippy’s as the best burger around

For many meat-eaters in West Seattle and White Center, it’s a given that Zippy’s Giant Burgers in White Center serves up a transcendent bite of freshly ground chuck and fresh cut veggies that is simply hard to beat.

I have personally heard more than one person attest, “It’s the best burger I've ever had.”

So while Zippy’s certainly has the hype and following locally, it never hurts to have a few citywide news anchors join in the praise.

Q13Fox (West Seattle Herald/White Center News news partner) recently sent their two morning anchors out to test a list of five burger joints voted by their viewers as the best in Western Washington.

Going up against Dick’s, Red Mill, Five Guys and Frisko Freeze, anchors Bill Wixey and Kaci Aitchison gave Zippy’s the nod as their favorite with a 9.5 out of 10.

The king of burgers was followed by Frisko Freeze in Tacoma, Red Mill, Five Guys and Dick’s (as Wixey put it, they are much better after a night out on the town).

“Obviously, they spent some time grilling this up,” Wixey said as he bit into a Zippy’s.
