The heat is turning up in Ypsi as Sizzles Burgers and Subs at 10. North Adams opens its doors during their “soft- opening”. As one of the newest eateries in town, co-owners and twin brothers Moe and Ali Fayed, are eager to get the ball rolling and people’s mouths watering.
With a palate and a dream, the Fayed brothers have come back to the city Moe says “he couldn’t forget". The duo wanted to make a shift after marrying and starting families, “ We wanted to work for ourselves, be home- and next to our kids”. The brothers had a dream of bringing their years of traveling for work and eating around the country to a place they could call their own. Months of hard work and hands-on construction later, and Sizzles: Burgers and Subs opened their doors for business. “It took a while to get the building but it was worth it...about a year and a half of construction.” Friends and family came together to take the long-vacant space at 10. North Adams and turn it into the eatery that it is today. Doing the hands-on work from blueprint to reality, Moe and Ali alongside family, and friends came together to put down everything from the cool grey ceramic tiles on the walls to their copper swirled floor.
Sizzles isn’t your ordinary coney island or burger joint as the menu proves. The Fayed brothers have brought together a fusion of cultures inspired- Moe say’s by, “Good food...we traveled for nine years and developed a taste for different styles- like the south of the border ‘tex-mex’ style”, as seen in the sauteed mushrooms and jalapenos on the ‘Sizzle burger’.
Dearborn residents bringing a new flavor to Ypsilanti, the Fayed brothers are also infusing their traditional Yemeni flavors to the Sizzles menu. “I have a few Arabic products, the shawarmas, and the kafta”. Yemeni seasonings and curry, for example, are used to marinate the meat. “But I’m not trying to keep it as just Arabic food, there’s definitely Americana- and if you don’t like that- you can build your own. Our meats are halal and brought in fresh, never frozen, and I bring in fresh bread baked daily.” Currently, Sizzles is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-11pm and 10am-10pm on Sunday.
