This was a pleasant surprise. The restaurant we wanted to try in the area doesn't open for lunch and I found Emil's on Yelp. The portion sizes were huge, the prices were good, and the service was wonderful. I'd definitely go back.

A bit of the beaten path but well worth the trip. Portions are huge and very tasty. The Rueben is to die for! Massive and made with all quality ingredients. The stuffed cabbage was great as well. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect fish, perfect halushki, cold beer. What more to say about a local gem! Shrimp dinner going by our table didn't look too shabby either.
