Enjoyed Falafel and onion rings with family. Can be crowded at busy meal times. Try to plan ahead or after lunch time rush.

I like the food here. It's quick, inexpensive, and tasty. I don't like the parking situation, so that keeps me from going to often.

Toy know what you're getting when you come here and that is what you get. Good food at a good price, no frills but always a line, that moves quickly, with consistent food and drink.
