“L-O-V-E. Zena's!!♡♡♡♡”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to Zena's for a very long time and I am very sorry I had not written a review before. This is our favorite place and every time we feel so welcomed by the family that owns it. The food is outstanding, love the salads, grilled chicken kakobs...everything is delicious!

“Excellent Lebanese Food”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Zena's decor is plain, drab and a little dated. But the food is excellent.

Our appetizers were the Warah A 'Reeshe, stuffed grape leaves and Arnabeet, fried Cauliflower. Both were delicious and fresh. The cauliflower was fried without breading and the grape leaves were hot and fresh. Will repeat both of those.

We both ordered the D'Jaje Miswee, barbecued, marinated boneless chicken breast with hummus and rice. The chicken was juicy, tender, and deeply flavored with the marinade.

The server was extremely hospitable, knowledgeable, and attentive. The mood is family friendly.

It is a great place and we will return.

“We always have a great meal at Zena's, and they have large portions.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

My husband and I always enjoy great food and Zena's offers it. The family owned restaurant has great service and a great selection of entrees. We have loved everything we have tried, but we especially love their chicken and lamb. Don't forget the garlic sauce, it's a family recipe! ENJOY!

“Great food from Lebanon”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

My friend took me here we had great fried cauliflower not with a batter. Good music from the middle east. The rest of the food was great. Not fancy but nice.
