Every time I try another Falafel restaurant, I'm always comparing their falafels to this restaurant! None have ever compared. No matter what time you go there, it seems there is always a line - but they are quick and it is worth any wait!

I don't know whether these are more or less authentic than the many others I have eaten in my travels, but they are definately the best.

We just loved this place. The falafels are delicious... really tasty. You have to try the banana milk shake. The hot dogs and french fries are perfect for kids and they have an area where you can eat. Great service and great value. A MUST if you enjoy trying new things.

No wonder this place always gets great reviews. They serve large portions and the food tastes great. Not sure how they make the hot sauce, but I loved it so much I just bought some to take home!!! I travel a lot, and eat Paleo all the time, and bottom line, the meat they serve here is excellent. The guy... More

Great falafels and good banana shakes. Usually packed at lunch so get there early or late or prepare to wait in line.

A classic unpretentious different style lunch by some hard working folks. There's a reason they've been around as long as they have. Don't spend much time in this part of time but if I am and I'm kinda hungry, I'm in line.

I have been coming to this place since I was a kid. I have never tasted anything so good then a falafel from here. Always great quality and a great value. They have awesome banana shakes here as well. Yes most is vegetarian fare but also serve great chicken and burgers. You can never go wrong with this place.
