Always quality food and great customer service. The meat and the vegetarian dishes are both good decisions. Lunchtime weekdays and weekends are busy. Plan around those times. Small parking lot. A nice choice for something fast but never disappointed.

I came back from Berlin recently where I got used to getting Donner kebabs. This place totally reminded me of Berlin. A little bit of a Chios during that weekend. There are 3 lines: one for orders and two for pick ups. If they place a sign as to where to stand, they become for efficient. I also like how... More

Good food especially the chicken schnitzel but can be a long wait if you go during prime time for meals.

Excellent Falafels but it gets busy early....The line usually moves right along but if you want to bypass the lines get there by 11:30

A small mom and pop restaurant. It is a very popular place for a falafel or a shwarma bite. Very tasty, juicy, with lots of flavorful sauces and vegetables. The soft pita bread is made on site. The employees are fast workers though they need to smile a little more.

This place is always packed, any time of the day. I had the best falafel pita I have ever had. Big, easy and juicy. I get all the hype now!

This place is all about the fresh food! My favorite is the Grilled Chicken Breast Hummus Plate. The Chicken is grilled only after you order; so, do prepare for a long wait. I usually ask for the non spicy version - it means no Jalapeno or any spicy condiments. The atmosphere is casual - plastic picnic tables and benches. Be... More

Everything is super fresh and delicious: the pita bread, hummus, tahini, salads. Did not try any of the meats. The falafel itself is mediocre: dry and stiff. Sabich (roasted eggplant, humus, hard boiled egg, salad and hot sauce in a pita bread) is to die for! Visited on a Saturday and it was PACKED!
