I have been to this place thrice in a week now since I came to know Ya Halla on CO Blvd was shut down a while ago. The food is very good and full of flavors. I enjoyed eating the Stuffed Lamb and Sheesh Ta'ouk,...More

This place is so small I don't think I'd risk the crowd they must get at night, but for lunch it's a great spot. Fast service, really inexpensive, parking next to the building and the food was totally yummy. I had a combo plate that...More

I will say that Jerusalem isn't the absolute best Middle Eastern food. But it is darn good and very reasonably priced! There super dish combo has a lot of meat, rice, cucumber, tabouleh, baba ganouj, and hummus for a good price! Usually they get your...More

This spot is open late night, and Denver peeps love it. I found it to be pretty mediocre Middle Eastern food, the felafel balls were dry, and my falafel came with tzadziki, instead of tahini. A fatal flaw... I have never gone back

Adjacent to DU, Jerusalem presents like a collection of shacks patched together to form a restaurant floating in a small parking lot. If you've been in Denver long enough, you know not to be deterred by the outward appearance as the food and service are...More

I've been to Jerusalem a few times and have been satisfied each time. I can see where the previous reveiwer might think it is small/cramped inside. It's definitely not a chain restaurant and so you are eating in a 'recycled' building - but they do...More

Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.
