As a family run restaurant Emily's is a must for anyone who likes tasty Lebanese food served rapidly in an environment that is simple and never ostentatious. Upon returning from Europe we went back to Emily's so that we could once again have home cooked food at a very reasonable price. The range on the menu is excellent; the people... More

Emily's is a nice neighborhood restaurant; not big on atmosphere but really big on great food and good value for your dollars. I love Middle Eastern food. I grew up with that cuisine in my home. My grandmother was the best cook in the world; the whole world. Emily's food tastes so similar to to my grandma's cooking I would... More

We tried some tabouli, baba ganuj, kafta kabob, an lamb shish kabob. Taste was average nothing exceptional.Place is small an shabby if you decide to sit inside, and the service was average. Probably we were quite used to Mediterranean an arabian cuisine, both of us didnt find anything raving to talk about. Infact the lamb shish kaboob was undercooked. Kafta... More

Love, love, love their Tabouli Salad! That alone is worth the trip. Table seating is limited and it can get quite warm inside of the establishment. The service is not the greatest and it can be very slow so get it to go if you are in a rush. Other than that the food is good and it is a... More

We ordered a few items, including a sampler plate, so we could try lots of things. Everything was really good, especially the lamb, spinach pie and baklava. Yum! We were the only ones in the place on a Saturday night, which surprised me based on the great food and decent prices.

Stopped by about an hour before closing on a Saturday night and we were the only ones there other than some people stopping by for take out. Had a really good lamb shank for only $12! My wife and I shared a kobob and also a combonation dinner so we could sample several items. They were all really good. We... More

If you like flavor and meat this is not the place for you. Ordered the stuffed cabbage with lamb and rice. There were little tiny bits of lamb but I bet it wasnt even one slice that was cut up and since meat is where the flavor is, there was no flavor. Totally bland rice rolled in cabbage. The tabouli...

Chicken and rice is the best here! I will agree with the rest of the reviewers- the flatbread is disapointing. The yogurt is top notch. The tabouli is great! Get the apple struedel cheesecake- amazing! The spinach pie is to die for. Can't wait to go back!

We eat here almost once a week. Barb has a half lamb shishkabob and I have the kafta burger. Good side salad with feta and garlic dressing, but good tabouli if you like that.

I asked the server what she liked which was the flavored rice in the chicken and rice dish which also says there's lamb in it and for almost $10 you get bread and tabouli . So I got that and shared the bowl of tabouli with my husband. Since we like lamb one of us had to get a shish... More
