Why It All Began

Atypical Kitchen was started by Zach Zeller, an entrepreneur and food lover at heart. He has lived in East Lakewood Ranch since 2016 with his wife and daughter. He quickly noticed that although there has been extensive growth in our community, there is a void in food delivery options. Any time that he and his family wished to have food delivered to their home, they were only left with pizza to chose from. While pizza is a delicious choice, he knew there had to be other options and set out to find a solution. After much research and connecting with numerous members of our local community, an idea was born, and so lives Atypical Kitchen.

The vision of Atypical Kitchen is to be able to provide with a twist, high-quality foods that are made from scratch with fresh ingredients and are developed strictly for delivery. The food should taste as hot and fresh when it gets to your doorstep, as it does straight out of our kitchen. The goal of Atypical Kitchen is to elevate the food delivery experience, providing another option for our community, delivering delicious foods across multiple brands that anyone can enjoy. We want everyone to be able to find a food that satisfies their taste buds.

Best barbeque in the area ... maybe anywhere! The pork and brisket are phenomenal and nothing is slathered in sauce.... You get to pick from their homemade sauce selection and add your own. I highly recommend the golden and the white sauces.My wife loves the burnt end tacos. If you are a fan of wings, this is the place for you! They're smoked for several hours, and again, you get to pick and apply your choice of sauces. They are normally flash-fried just prior to serving, but you can request them to be grilled instead, and they're fantastic!Check out Atypical Kitchen, you'll be glad you did!read more

We have been eating their food at the Naughty Monk since they started offering their food as part of the COVID... response. Everything is great! I love their brisket and my wife loves the shrimp tacos. We both tried the smoked turkey cobb salad recently and it was awesome!read more

Tonight we ordered Atypical for the second night in a row after last night was so good. Our order was missing an item,... and when I called to report, they immediately acknowledged the error and sent out the item for a follow up delivery. Not only did we receive the hush puppies, but they went above and beyond and included a free dessert as a supplement. It was completely unnecessary but very much appreciated. Dinner tonight and last night were both tremendous and we look forward to coming back again and again. Tonight proved not only do they have great food, but are committed to great customer service as well. Thank you for a great experience.read more

We stumbled onto this place searching for a nearby quick and easy dinner we haven’t tried yet. Boy, are we glad we... did. The attention to detail , keeping the Ingredients separate and labeled, the freshness and quality, this place is wonderful. The tastes were complex and layered and the result was such a great meal. We will be back , soon! Do yourself a favor and try this place, it is excellent. Many chefs and cooks in our area try their best and do well, but this place clearly has something special. Well done.read more

Ordered from here for the first time. This place is about 1 mile from my house. Free delivery took 30 only minutes. I... got brisket plate. Wife got turkey tacos. Everything tasted awesome. Only mistake was I ordered side of street corn and they gave green beans instead. Called the GM, Jennifer, mainly to give them feedback but she insisted on making it right (and then some). 30 minutes later we had another delivery of street corn and to desserts! Can’t wait until I am hungry again!read more

Seriously, this place is going to put Nancy’s out of business. Far better in quality, taste, price, service, and... portion sizes. The free delivery to our zip code is clutch as well. Best BBQ in the Lakewood Ranch area, and it’s not even close. We tried it for the first time yesterday and we are hooked - we’ve already decided to order it again later this week!read more

Not sure where to start, Atypical Kitchen is by far the best restaurant to come to Lakewood Ranch. All of the meats... have the perfect amount of seasoning and smoky flavor. I've ordered meats by the pound (finally someone that can properly smoke a brisket) all of which arrive perfectly moist with a fantastic array of homemade sauces to go with them, my favorite being the "White BBQ." Their sandwiches are boxed up for you to assemble when you receive them so the bread doesn't get soggy. We have ordered several times for our family to enjoy as well our employees and customers to try all of which rave about them! Atypical Kitchen uses fresh ingredients to create amazing salads (Smokehouse Cobb is a family favorite) and side dishes but their wings are the most incredible; there is no point to ever go anywhere else for wings! Our other favorite dishes to order are the smoked turkey, pit smoked green chili, the hawaiian sandwich, potato salad, borracho beans and cole slaw. Between this being the best authentic barbecue in the area as well as the free delivery/curbside pick up you cannot go wrong.read more

Delivered on time to the office. We were all blown away on all fronts. The food was first and foremost was delicious,... it was packaged in a way that we could add our own sauces (great variety and one tastier than the next) and build our own sandwich. I had the smoked turkey club. No joke, it is likely the best I’ve ever had. I’m very glad to have atypical kitchen right by our office and I’m also looking forward to grabbing dinner some evening on my way home.read more

Atypical Kitchen has literally blown me away with amazing flavor and the best quality in delivery food I've experienced... in months. I'm so grateful a food offering finally cares that my family gets fresh and hot meals delivered to at our door. I can't wait to try everything their creative menu has to offer. For now, I highly recommend the shrimp salads, hush puppies, street corn and ALL of the amazing sauces! On top of top-notch quality, their prices are more than reasonable. They didn't even charge me for delivery like the other vendors. Two thumbs up Atypical!!read more
