Z-Burger/Maman Joon Kitchen is Coming to Olney

Updated to reflect that Z-Burger will be joining Maman Joon at the location

Maman Joon, a restaurant offering Persian cuisine, and sister restaurant Z-Burger are both coming to 18100 Georgia Avenue. The space was recently home to Taco Bar and previously home to Jerry’s Subs and Pizza. Permanent signage is currently being installed. Maman Joon offers a variety of kabobs, sandwiches, soups, salads, platters, desserts and other Persian specialties. Maman Joon currently has locations in Tenleytown, McLean, and Tyson’s Corner. Z-Burger describes itself as “a Washington DC landmark! Home to the area’s most delicious handcrafted burgers with endless toppings, fresh cut fries and 75 varieties of hand spun milk shakes and concretes made with premium Wisconsin custard.”

The group recently opened its Tyson’s Maman Joon location and co-owner Peter Tabibian stated “We know there’s a lot of Persian community and a lot of people from Qatar, Saudi and Middle Eastern countries in that area. We thought there was a void for a Persian [or] Middle Eastern concept, and we thought it would be a great fit to put Maman Joon out there.” in an interview with FFXnow.

Z-Burger announced its first MoCo location earlier this year, but it’s currently unknown whether the Bethesda location or Olney location will open first.

Per Maman Joon, “We take pride in creating authentic Persian food that reflects our heritage. Our ingredients are always fresh, most of our spices come from Iran, and our menu is lovingly prepared using our treasured family recipes. As for the restaurant’s name, the word Maman means “mom” and the word Joon means “soul, spirit of life.” Used in a modern day to mean “dear”, as a gesture of close kinship and hospitality. So all together Maman Joon, means DEAR MOM! Food is the language through which mom best knows.”
