I like this place a lot. Usually visit them once to twice a month, basically due to the fact that the food is always fresh and amazing. Everything comes with Pita, and is tasty. I prefer Shawarmas and Falafel. It is usually busy on weekends and you have to wait for up to 20-30 minutes to get your food, which is okay I guess since it tastes great.

Parking can be a challenge sometimes, but
Mostly a spot or two is available due to the high churn rate..

Falafel was about it the last time I was there -- but today I found meat items have been added! We had falafel anyway, specifically the falafel salad as we are eating gluten-free. On a base of a (large) Greek salad plus hummus and other condiments were 10 falafel balls-- more than enough for the two of us to share. As we are not fans of eggplant, they doubled the hummus in place of the babaganoush. Pita is also offered.

After placing your order and paying at the cashier, you bring your receipt to the windows where they customize your food. Seating is picnic benches under an enclosed canvas covering.

Excellent middle eastern food. The falafel sandwich is excellent as is the shwarma, served with pickled vegetables, sauerkraut, tahini, hummus and optional spicy sauce. There are smaller 1/2 falafel sandwiches if you are not hungry. The salads are also good, the Israeli salad is a nice mix of vegetables, hummus, tahini on a bed of salad. The hummus plates are also recommended- the masabacha is hummus mixed with pickled vegetables, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, and tahini, also very good. Very inexpensive. Very good and fast service - despite the crowds which are there all the time. worth a STOP!

The bread is always freshly made and the falafels and salad are my favorites. Service isn't the best. The system can be confusing for a first timer (order inside and pick up at different counter depending on what you order). Parking can be a nightmare at peak hours.

Love this place - laid back and the food's so gooooood! I tried almost everything on the menu and I tend to go back to the Grilled Chicken Hummus Plate. Generous portion of the grilled chicken on a bed of hummus with tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions on the side with all the spicy condiments. Tahini sauce finishes the plate. The pita bread's always so good and tender. Perfect for using to scoop up all the hummus.

Expect picnic table style eatery. Sharing is a must when busy. Clean up the space you occupied for the next customer.
