Congratulations, also, to our wonderful neighbors, Penn Brewery, the other Pittsburgh recipient!  And thank you, again, Pittsburgh, for allowing us to be part of the beautiful fabric!

Ahalan Wa Sahalan!    (Welcome!)

Khalil’s Restaurant, founded by Mikhail & Agnes Khalil, has been serving the finest Middle Eastern Cuisine since 1972.  But what makes Khalil’s truly special is the warmth and genuine hospitality that Agnes & Michael gave to every single guest who walked into their doors for over 49 years.   


It is their beautiful spirit of kindness that far outweighed their delicious cuisine.  They wanted you to feel as if you were in their own home, where they could shower you with all the beautiful hospitality Syrian people are known throughout the world for.  It is with this spirit, that we welcome you to Khalil’s... to the very newest of our guests, to our beloved guests who have been with us since 1972.   Ahalan Wa Sahalan!


We desire to nourish not only the body, but also the soul  

For if you bake bread with indifference, you feed but a half man's hunger
