This is a small, clean corner building with marvelous food. The lamb kabobs and the tabouli were perfect. The Turkish coffee was delicious (and WAY under-priced 😃)! Friendly service, perfect English, and great prices. I will definitely be back!

Absolutely fabulous food!! We have been coming to Emily's for over 30 years, when Emily was behind the counter. Hands down best hummus, pita, tabouli salad, summer cucumber salad with feta and spinach pies.

Our visit to Emily's was on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. The tabouli salad and chicken kabobs with rice were so tasty. The side salad with all the extra toppings and yummy dressing also gets raves. All the tables in this small restaurant...More

I'm writing this review while traveling through Europe. We've had a Lebanese at a few "well-known" and recommend places in London and Amsterdam and Emily's blows those away. I've eaten at Emily's probably about 20 times or so and enjoy every last bite. Emily's is...More
