Located in Uptown Historic Olde Englewood Village, Zeke's is an eclectic Casual Modern American Gourmet Bar & Grill. At Zeke's Uptown you will find a variety of ethnic or geographic flavors and styles (isn't that what "American" really is). When the FOOD is what matters, we select Natural Beef, Pork, Poultry and Seafood that is fresh, Antibiotic Free, Hormone Free, Non-GMO and our vegetables are Natural or Organic products. All are sourced from Local Farms, Fisheries and Purveyors whenever possible. We have a large Gluten Free Menu, cut all of our meats, seafood and poultry; make our own mozzarella, buttermilk biscuits and cinnamon rolls fresh daily and every meal is prepared to order. We want our guests to come and relax, take time to savor great flavors, share a fine wine and good conversation with family or friends. We're family owned and operated and are here to serve you what we hope you will find to be a superior meal and value. We're human, so we're not perfect...But we will always try to make you feel like a part of our extended family. Don't hesitate to ask us anything and we'll do our very best to accommodate you. Recent Awards Include: Bon Appetite's 2015 Best Daytime Dining Restaurant and The Englewood Sun's 2016 Best of Englewood, Best Burger Award.
