Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of homestyle cooking at Zarzour's Eats and Jackie's Treats.
The cooks at Zarzour's Eats and Jackie's Treats whip up hearty homestyle eats and daily specials during the daylight hours. Breakfast bites such as the applewood-bacon omelet ($5.49) or Texas-size french toast sprinkled with powdered sugar ($3.95) wake sleepy diners better than a face full of shaving cream. For lunch, the bourbon-glazed steak salad’s beef medallion filets rest atop a bed of greens with crumbled blue cheese and slivered almonds ($9.25). Thinly sliced roast beef shimmies between horseradish-coated hoagie buns ($7.49), whereas the hamburger wrap ($7.49) eschews buns completely. The week's specials ($7.79) pair protein with a choice of three veggies, assembling feasts of pot roast or quiche accompanied by sides of roasted potatoes and fried okra, that, like a rotisserie chicken strapped to the equator, rotate daily. Cap a meal with a bite from the bakery’s sweet assortment of pies, breads, and cakes.
The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling front windows spotlight an interior sprinkled with deep red chairs tucked below black tables adorned with flowers. Large mirrors hang from beige-colored walls, joined by colored tiles, a large clock, and European aristocrats checking for food in their handlebar mustaches.
Zarzour's Eats and Jackie's Treats
The staff at Zarzour’s Eats and Jackie’s Treats, made up of members of the owner’s own family, whips up homestyle fare for breakfast and lunch within the kitchen and handcrafts desserts inside an in-house bakery. They fire up the grills at 6:30 a.m. each day, feeding hot skillets eggs, meats, and pancakes before switching culinary gears at 10:30 a.m. to prepare daily lunch specials. Meanwhile, Jackie bakes pies, cakes, and specialty breads that customers can bring home that day or order in advance for special occasions or stoogeless dessert receptions.
