Best Way To Add Width With A Girth: Zip’s Café

Best Way To Add Width With A Girth

Raise a Rhinegeist to Zip’s Café, the dark-paneled Delta Avenue burger joint that celebrated its 90th birthday last year. Settle into a booth and ponder your order as you watch a nostalgia-inducing model train glide across a track that runs along the ceiling. If you’re feeling like a light meal, order a classic Zip burger, with fresh, flame-broiled meat from local butcher Avril-Bleh & Sons, nestled in a toasted honey-egg bun from Klosterman Bakery, and a side of super crispy onion rings. Or go big with the Girth Burger, a Zip burger topped with a split Avril-Bleh mettwurst. Or even bigger with the Train Wreck, a Zip burger topped with shaved ham, the aforementioned split grilled mettwurst and three types of cheese — just in case you thought the standard Girth burger wasn’t enough on its own and you don’t feel like fitting into your pants tomorrow. Zip’s Café, 1036 Delta Ave., Mount Lookout, 513-871-9876,
