After a brief closure and change of owners, Habib's is back. Former owner Danny was homesick for family in Lebanon and that's where he is now. We'll miss you Danny. The menu is the same with a few added items. My wife and I had...More

If you talk to Danny, the owner and manager, who is almost always around keeping an eye on his staff and what's cooking, you will discover that almost all of the food on the menu is made by hand. Danny makes weekly runs to Columbus...More

My wife and I enjoy coming to Habibi's on a regular basis. The selection of salads, a la carte, sandwiches and entrees might be standard for the cuisine yet we know the food is made fresh and they are experimenting with items on the menu....More
