Great lunch at Petra. Hummus and gyro meat very delicious. Very small cafe, so expect a wait on busy days. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Fayetteville.

This cafe was cute and tiny. They are very busy, so leave enough time to eat. The food was delicious! We even had room for baklava and Turkish coffee.

The owner Saleh is from the Jordan Valley, and knows his taste profiles and foods. Good falafels, hummus, tabouleh, and mixed dishes. His gyros are sliced/prepared in advance and so-so, but his dishes are always fresh, flavorful. In this tine, charming, local space, the service is solid, and the atmosphere is always lively, happy, and appreciative. Great food, fun, friends...

Delicious!!!! Small place, big taste! Can I purchase a franchise please?!?! Everything homemade except for the protein. If I had a portable fridge on this trip, I would have purchased in giant quantities the hummus and other mouth watering offerings. I was ready to pack my bags for a trip to Jordan!

Cool little place. Very Fayetteville. Lentil soup was incredible. I got lentil soup, good portion of hummus and a great lamb gyro for $6. Will definitely be back.

So happy we chose this place on our recent visit to Fayetteville. Excellent food, quick friendly service, and baklava. What more can you ask for? We will most certainly be back next time we're in town.

My new regular lunch place! Reminds me of places where I used to have lunch when I lived with in NYC. Small, family run place with delicious food. I love the hummus.

Being Greek I love to try Mediterranean and middle eastern food whenever I get the chance! This was the best hummus I've ever had. Dolmades were perfect and the service was great. Tiny hole in the wall cafe with big flavor !

Thank Julie K
