A little hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but a real live spit for the gyros meat, and absolutely amazing falafel. Prices are great, grab your meal and head outside to watch the street performers!

We are the NATO Mediterranean food. Cooked a chorba with our nutritionist and then wanted lunch. Found Falafel King on TripAdvisor and went for it. Good choice. We had gyros and falafel. Meat was grilled with onions and served on a soft pita. Falafel was crunchy. Gyros stuffed with fresh greens and tomatoes. We'll be back

Had a great hike on the Foothills and headed to town to eat something light but healthy. We found this small restaurant (at least the outside looks cozy, small). We made the right choice had a delicious meal we wanted; service was quick and we felt money well spent. I would recommend it!

Appearance wise, this place has all the trappings of a cafeteria line or a fast food restaurant, but that's not the point. They make the best gyros in Boulder!

The Falafel King is a classic Boulder/Falafel experience. I have been eating there for decades. As a vegetarian, I love their vegetarian choices, and cannot tell you how good their falafel is. A culinary delight.
