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.

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

One of my favorite places in the twin cities. I take all my friends. It is a classic family run hole in the wall with amazing middle eastern food. The Taboule is th best anywhere.

Our family took my mother out for her 89th. birthday to Emily's, great food,relaxing atmosphere,great attentive service. Everyone trying each others dish,just like home,except we're Norwegian. Really a cozy little place to gather,oh and the Baklava is the best in the city (and no calories..ha ha).

First time at a Lebonese place. Went in for breakfest to take on the road. Staff was amazingly helpful explaining whats stuff was and suggesting the best options. Got lamb and green beans. Amazing cold and warmed up afterwards. Hummas was fantastic. Next time I am in the area I will be stopping in!

Friendly staff and place. Food is great but salad or taboule should be served with the food instead of starter to makes it less dry and fresher. Fish was too salty.
