Metro Detroiters shared their opinions on social media on Monday.

“Am I the only one that is thinking this is a stupid name change?” asked Meredith, a Sterling Heights resident who was a regular at Ideli.

“That does seem like a really ill-conceived name for a middle eastern restaurant. Unless they want to be on DHS watch lists,” Nicole, of Royal Oak, posted on Facebook.

“It’s a problem only if either they 1. add an -er to the end, 2. deliver in a van with their company name on it,” wrote Rich from Flint.

“Definitely should re-think that,” added Roger, of Clifford, Mich.

The signature dish will be “The Bomb Fajita.” Read more.

At first, I thought graphic above was just a part of the article, not the actual signage, but apparently, that’s what you’ll see from the street. Maybe I don’t have a sense of humor.
