Emily's Lebanese Delicatessen....Wow! Had really no idea if the Mrs and I would like "Lebanese" food (especially Terri as she's the picky one) but before we left she was already making comments about 'the next time we come back'....the food was outstanding! I had the Lamb Shish Kabobs and Terri had the Chicken Kabobs...the Mista Bread appetizer was just awesome.... More

I went there for lunch today. It was the final day of my 5 day Diner's, Drive-in's, and Dives Roadtrip in Minneapolis. The place is in a great little neighborhood. It was Saturday and there was a great local Farmers Market across the street. It is definetly not a hole in the wall. I overheard it had been recently renovated.... More

The food is so darn good! Can't go wrong with the Chicken Kabob and Rice. The tabouli salad is to die for! My date couldn't stop raving about it. I think it sealed the deal for a 2nd date! She thinks I have great taste! Thanks Emily's!

40 yrs ago my uncle visited us from the Middle East and so we tried Emily's after reading an article in the local newspaper. I remember the tabouli as unmatched and after many years of eating it other places today we confirm it is STILL the best. I ordered a large salad with everything- onions, olives, peppers, cheese and a... More

Bought a deal on Groupon because I was craving Middle Eastern food. We brought the kids and said we'd like to try a little bit of everything. The lamb was awesome and the spinach pie rocked. Falafel was popular, too. Grape leaves tasted the way they should, but they weren't exactly a hit with the kids, at least not compared... More

If you are looking for Raw KIbbi they have it. The combination dinner is a nice way to try lots of different flavors. The kabob's are good as well.

Fully renovated with new equipment and definitely clean. This is a multi-generation family owned and operated restaurant that has the best food you will ever eat (especially is you like Lebanese/Mediterranean cuisine. Odds are you will have to wait 5-10 mins for table or maybe 15... but it is sooooo worth the wait. Even better is that you can take... More
