Thank you for your interest in Emil's !
If you have any questions...please feel free to call us at
We will have our email up and running very soon !
Our hours are:
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
from 10:00 AM
AM to 8:00
AM to 4:00
We are CLOSED Sunday
Ok...here's the deal.
GPS navigation is NOT
recommended when trying to find Emil's !
We acknowledge, that if you are not familiar with this area, directions to here on GPS is confusing.
But....it IS EASY TO FIND US !
We are in Rankin, Pa ...but are listed as 414 Hawkins Avenue
Braddock, Pa 15104.
The problem is...there is a Hawkins Avenue that runs through Rankin...and a Hawkins Avenue that runs through North Braddock.
Some GPS and Internet maps refer to a Hawkins STREET...not AVENUE.
While GPS is correct in taking you to 414 Hawkins Avenue...it takes you to the WRONG Hawkins Avenue.
Or...you can click on this link: Emil's Lounge Directions
Unfortunately...someone who once tried to visit us for the first time, and was using GPS....went to the WRONG Hawkins Avenue, and found a boarded up house in a RESIDENTIAL area.
Instead of realizing that they were OBVIOUSLY
at the wrong place...
They made an erroneous post on the Internet that says that Emil's was CLOSED and BOARDED UP.
NOT TRUE !!!
Emil's is NOT closed...NEVER HAS BEEN...and has been opened and SERVING PITTSBURGHER'S for nearly 60 years !!!
We are not far at all from the Rankin Bridge.
And...we are DIRECTLY
across the street from the
Rankin Borough Building which is 320 Hawkins Avenue.
We recommend that you use Mapquest to get directions.
Mapquest the Rankin Borough Building in RANKIN Pa.
Or, if you are in the area...just ask anyone where the
Rankin Borough Building is...or the Rankin Police station.
Again...we are RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET !
If you take the Edgewood/Swissvale exit
from the Parkway East,
and go as you would if you were heading to Kennywood...you are just MINUTES away.
INSTEAD of going all the way down to, and ACROSS the Rankin Bridge, just follow S. Braddock Avenue once you get off the Parkway exit. S. Braddock Avenue takes you past the Edgewood Town Center Shopping Plaza and then turns in to Kenmawr Avenue. Look for 4th Avenue and turn RIGHT on 4th Avenue. Go to the end...a "T" and turn RIGHT on Hawkins.
We are RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU !
Can't miss us.
Or...call us from your cell phone...let us know what you see...and we'll get you here.
Also...there is an Amo's Pizza close by...and sometimes when people ask someone on the street where EMIL'S is...a local might think you said AMO'S ( they sound familiar )...and send you to the pizza place.
DON'T GET FRUSTRATED and GIVE UP !
Call us and we'll stay on the phone with you until you walk though the front door !
Hope to see you soon !
