Rami's never disappoints! The food is fresh and made from scratch in the open kitchen so you can watch while waiting in line to order. The falafel in particular is delicious and fun to watch being made; the ingredients get fed into a really cool little machine that squeezes the mixture into little balls and then into the fryer. The salad is very fresh, and the hummus is the absolute best. The pita bread is warm, thick, and always tastes just baked, and is made in small batches and then kept in an insulated box so it stays warm without being reheated. The line can get long and doesn't always move very quickly, so despite being an order-at-the-counter place, this is not fast food. In my opinion, the menu is actually too big and contributes to the slowness (if everyone in front of you orders pita sandwiches or schwarma, it's fine, but then some guy just has to come in and order the appetizer sampler...), but with so few kosher restaurants I guess you try to cover all the bases by offering a large menu.

They accept LevelUp - yay! It's quicker, reduces credit card fees, and sometimes you get random discounts.

their felafel arrives in large refrigerated trucks. guess why?
one can watch boxes being unloaded. contents are frozen.
when served, these same contents are dry, taste a bit like
sawdust.

I brought the whole family to Rami's last week. We had fallafel, houmous, shwarma and tahina; all with fresh pita. It's a bit tight in the restaurant during the busy time, but we found a table anyway. The hot sauce (hariff) was especially good! I've had fallafel all over the world, and I think that
Rami's is the best!

Hummus is superb here, similar to what you could get in Israel. The falafel is good, but I particularly enjoy the turkey shwarma (although they seem to use MSG, as I always get dry mouth afterwards). Serving portions are generous. The salad is fresh (lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, cabbage, sweet pickles--made to order with hot sauce and tahini as you wish or not). It can get crowded at lunch time. Since each order is custom made, sometimes it takes a while to service the line. Limited seating. It's a bit pricey, but a better deal than the other Jewish grill nearby and much less acidic food than the Lebanese shwarma restaurant a few blocks away.

Great Isreali fafael, and other Isreali goodies. The pickels are perfect. Be sure to ask for the hot sauce, but get it on the side. The dinning area is tiny, but the poritions are big
