Don't judge this place by the exterior, the food is phenomenal! The pita is amazing, fluffy, and huge. We had the hummus (delicious), chicken kabob plate (addicting), falafel (also delicious), and lamb platter (so good!). This place is totally worth a try!

If you like schwarma, this is your place. It's delicious!! Also they give you freshly made lavosh with every order and the hummus is delicious. The service was just ok but the food More than makes up for it. Go go go 😊
