Zaitoon Mediterranean Fiests - Durham

I saw their Grand Opening ad in the Indy today. I haven't been but I'm curious about their claiming to be 100% Halal/Kosher. I'm quite sure that they're Halal but I seriously doubt that they're Kosher. No menu online that I can find, but the ad lists American burgers and subs and Greek salad. As far as I know, those dishes generally have cheese. If they're serving both meat and cheese in the same dish, they are not kosher. Also, I see no kosher certifying agency or rabbi listed in the ad. And, as far as I know, there is no meat processor that has both halal and generally acceptable kosher certification.

So, does anyone know anything about their food and/or their religious dietary claims?
