Pre and post-rennovations/expansion, this place has been a great haven for good Mediterranean food on the Central Coast. Authentic food made by a family from the area, but had to knock them a star because their menu is starting to edge towards typical American style food...standard pizzas, etc. and their pricing is still just a touch higher than it should be considering all the competition and typical rates around town. Otherwise, delicious and a great place to grab a bite and relax after work.

Every member of our family loved our meal at Petra. We loved the gyros, the lamb shwarma, and the falafel. The pita bread was fresh and made on site. The hummus was only mediocre and they didn't have french fries. It was a casual, comfortable restaurant, great for families and the budget conscious. The value and prices were great.

We enjoyed the chicken kabob plate that came with rice, hummus, cucumber/yogurt and the homemade fluffy pita bread. Oh, did I mention they give you not one but TWO chicken kabob. The tri-tip beef shwarma was tender and plentiful. You will leave with a very full stomach.

SLO is blessed with a couple of very good gyros places - Petra is one of them. A wide variety of excellent mid-east food along with pizzas and an extensive beer/wine list. Order at the counter and the plates show up pretty quickly at your table. Excellent value for money

good to have 'some' ethnic choices in town ....not that there needs to be another pizza joint ... so we stay away from that ( and can't comment) ...typically order the pitas or combo plates. The falafels are good (had better...had much worse), my wife's favorite is the steak kabob platter - kabobs are fresh, with generous servings. A good selection of craft beers, many on tap. Counter order, served at tables. A few small tables outside if you can snag one...otherwise, a big room, has a dining hall 'ambiance', caters to college crowd and popular - we go on off-hours to avoid crush, but yes, if you're looking for something decent 'downtown, a good option. (also 3-5pm... beer specials, if inclined)
