In her native Lebanon, Zakia mastered traditional Mediterranean recipes by preparing meals for her husband and seven children. After further refining her skills in another Minneapolis deli for more than 15 years, she finally opened her own shop in 2007.
Here, her pita sandwiches pack such tasty fixings as lentil and rice spreads or baked kibbe meat, both of which come crowned with Lebanese salad. Patrons can assemble their own sandwiches, too, with ingredients such as honey-wheat bread, pastrami, and chipotle spread. Zakia also showcases Lebanese specialties, including meatballs made from ground beef, parsley, and onion, not to mention plenty of vegan and gluten-free dishes. Everyday specialty entrees include favorites such as gyros and falafel plates, baked chicken, and kibbi, or baked meat squares culled from lean ground beef, cracked wheat, and savory onions.
BBQ Champions doesn’t claim to be famous. It doesn’t fabricate phony celebrity endorsements, or offer a copy of its chef’s autobiography with every order of mac and cheese. It simply fills bellies with barbecue that is just, well, good. The BBQ Champions approach may be simple, but when you've got in-house hickory-smoked tips, pulled pork that gets prepared fresh daily, and homemade sauces, you don't need gimmicks. Speaking of those sauces, diners can choose from five different flavors to coat their wings, including honey barbecue, buffalo, and teriyaki. And, as if its barbecue spread wasn’t enough, BBQ Champions also assembles Chicago-style hotdogs with all the proper fixings.
