Had Lunch at Sisso. Great fresh salad bar that became the basis of the shish-kebab. Service was attentive. Menu only in Spanish but they spoke a little English to be able to explain the dishes on the menu. The Hummus was the best I have ever had. Pita bread fluffy. It was an overall great lunch

Sisso is our favorite Mediterranean place in the area and is especially suited for lunch. There's both indoor and outdoor seating and the service is really good. The falafel is top notch and the homemade pita and laffa breads are always fresh. The salad bar is amazing too (recommendation: get the carrots). My favorite dish to order is the falafel... More

I truly enjoy this place, specially when it is empty. The service is great, the food is fingerlicking good and the ambiance is pleasant. For the price that you are paying, this place gets 2 thumbs way up and I will always come here when I need a quick bite!!

We are regulars here been at least 12 times and we usually get the Chicken Schwarma plate. We love the variety of salads that you can choose from and the 2 hot sauces that you can get. The seasoning on the chicken schwarma is very flavorful. I ask to get the pita bread they give us toasted and use it... More
