If you are looking for a great Falafel then this is the place to go. It is a odd little place, you have to park and go to the walk up window to order and they have some seating outside. It is well worth the effort! Best Falafel I have had, they also have an awesome Banana Shake and yummy... More

Food taste, price and friendly environment for quick bite dinner or lunch. Like to go to this place later at night to feel the real drive-in feeling

I think most people like their falafels more then I do. For me, it's all about their banana milkshakes. It's the best in town.

Without the hot sauce, is my favorite. My husband likes the cheeseburger and fries. Location of Drive-In is close to my home.

Certainly worth a visit when in the area. Gyros and Falafel, sandwich, salads, friendly service. Middle Eastern specialties, even though it says drive in there are benches setup outside, with shade, and colorful painted decoration on the wall.

Best Falafel around and the banana shakes are really good too. Don't eat them while you're drinking. Big mistake. It gets really busy there and parking is a pain so go down side street and park in residential.

Come for the delicious falafels and stay for the fun ambience. Enjoy the San Jose inspired mural on the courtyard walls. There is always a line because this place is so popular, but the line moves fast. They are incredibly efficient. Favorites: small falafel and falafel salad

Lunch today was tasty and inexpensive. The guys behind the counter were friendly and professional, as usual. This is a regular spot for our lunch and will continue to be.
