eat the whole plate including sides of fries and coleslaw in 12 minutes or less! Successful contestants win a Zeke’s shirt which says “I did the dirty at Zeke’s, and it only took me 12 minutes!” All who attempt the challenge get their picture on the “Dirty Wall”, on either the “Fame” or “Shame” side. Nearly 100 people have taken the challenge, and about half have actually succeeded. Another outstanding facet of Zeke’s is its staff. Every single staff member is 100 per cent committed. “Nobody here comes to work just for the paycheck,” says Zielinski. The staff look forward to work every day, and that excitement translates into authentic, genuine interactions with the customers. “Our customers’ loyalty is due equally to our staff as to our food.”
Zeke’s is continually growing. “At this time, Zeke’s is open Thursdays through Sundays, but we are introducing exclusive evenings outside of our regular hours where our clientele can participate in exploring new foods, new drinks and live music,” says Zielinski. Zeke’s is also working towards establishing itself as a leader in the area for craft beer selection. They are starting by bringing in a selection of Paddock Wood craft beer as well as Müs Knuckle craft beer. Zeke’s is very important for the local snowmobiling community: “Almost all of the trail ways lead to us,” Zielinski says. “We have a groomed trail right to our doorstep.” The restaurant will also be hosting the Easter Seals Snowarama
luncheon this year on February 8th, which they are very excited about. To get Zeke’s latest news, from Dirty winners to the menu and hours of operation, like them on Facebook. If you don’t know where Mikado is, you can find it on Highway 5, just between Kamsack and Canora.
