Our story

About us.

Started by Hopkins natives with deep roots in the community, Gedi Grill located inside of the Hopkins Halal has been a vision in work for the past several years. We are community-oriented grill—our passion for service, excellent food, and exceptional ingredients stems from a deep desire to meet the needs of our community members and provide them with a space to experience a cultural awakening in taste and east African products

Gedi Grill is a social enterprise that is culturally focused on east African-infused foods and products. We are a locally owned and sourced grill located in the heart of downtown Hopkins. Our full-service grill features east African, Mediterranean, and American-inspired foods. Our grill is located inside of Hopkins Halal, a community-oriented grocery store that offers global products with a focus on east African-originated spices, meats, and produce. All of our grill options are certified Halal.
