Here's a bit of bummer burger news for Burger Week--much-loved West Seattle joint Zippy's Giant Burgers is not, in fact, opening in its new White Center location today. This was the tentative reopen date for the Highland Park institution, forced out of its original building due to the landlord's foreclosure issues. The new opening date is May 1,10:30 a.m. to be exact, and the website has a handy countdown clock for all of you keeping track.
According to West Seattle Blog, some fireproofing permit issues are behind the delay. However as you can see from the photo above (taken Sunday evening) there's still more work to be done. The new space on 14th Avenue SW in White Center is in a rather subdued strip mall a proverbial stone's throw from Big Al Brewing. However the dining room is much larger and there is plenty of parking.
