Zeke's Eatin' Place, located at 1781 E. Highway 69 Suite 35, in the Frontier Village Shopping Center, hits a big milestone this August.
The locally owned and operated restaurant, known throughout the quad-city area for its large portions and local flair, celebrates 20 years of business this year.
According to co-owner Robert Williams, Zeke's is the longest-standing, single-owned businesses in Frontier Village. Williams and his wife, co-owner Tracey Williams, have developed a strong customer base over their many years in business, many of whom visit the restaurant on a regular basis.
On the third Friday of every month, the restaurant also hosts Zeke's Cruz Nite, featuring a classic car and hot rod show, from 4 to 7 p.m., which draws a number of locals each month. Host club Yavapai Classic Cruisers is on hand for the shows each month. Classic car cruisers also get a 10 percent discount at the restaurant for their participation in the show. Dates for upcoming cruz nites are Friday, June 20, Friday, July 18, Friday, Aug. 15, and Friday, Sept. 19. Cruz Nites are free and open to the public, and also broadcast on KKLD radio.
Zeke's is currently coordinating a raffle for a 44-inch US General toolbox with a retail value of $699, along with a $200 gift card for Harbor Freight Tools. Enter the raffle at each of the upcoming car shows. The winner will be chosen Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. Those who enter must be present to win. Zeke's has hosted the car show for over 15 years.
Customer favorites at Zeke's Eatin' Place include the country fried steak, French toast, ham steaks, their South of the Border omelet, and other options. "Our omelets are five-egg omelets. They're huge," Robert Williams said.
Other favorites include the pastrami Reuben sandwich, prime rib dip sandwich, Southwest turkey melts and, of course, Zeke's whopping half-pound burgers. "They're not just on a bun, but on garlic French bread," Williams said.
Breakfast options include the "hog-sized" ham steak platter, more than 10 assorted omelet choices, including the Cheese Burger Omelet, Hot Italian Sausage Omelet, Greek Omelet, and more. Other breakfast choices include burros, breakfast quesadillas, scrambles, biscuits and gravy, and pancakes.
Lunch options include meatloaf lunch, deep fried cod, top sirloin, or many sandwich choices, such as the Cowboy Club, Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, and the Redneck Steak Sandwich. Their signature Hay Stack Sandwich features a pile of slow-roasted prime rib, shaved, atop grilled garlic cheese bread with provolone cheese and the house "redneck" sauce. The sandwich is topped with deep fried hash browns. Hot open-faced sandwiches, soup and chili, grilled sandwiches, and their half-pound burgers are available. Salad choices, including fried chicken salad and chef salad, are also on the menu.
Regular half-pound and signature half-pound burgers are available on the full dinner menu, featuring the Duke Burger, made with pepper jack cheese, guacamole and bacon, and the Reuben Burger, made with pastrami, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and Swiss cheese, as well as seven other choices.
