The first Akel’s Delicatessen opened in Merrick, New York in 1973 by three brothers (Ishak, Sami, And Marwan) who came to America with a dream to have a family restaurant. As the years past, the brother’s moved south and opened their first Jacksonville location in 1988. Today, sons and daughters along with extended family have continued with the “Akel Tradition” of quality food and great service.
