The best, freshest authentic lebanese food ever. I will only eat raw kibby here! Do not miss this great deli. You won't regret it. Promise.

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...More

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...More
