Every time we visit Los Angeles area, we have to go to Joe's falafel at least twice. It's a small place, where you order your food and sit down to dine. If you are looking for ambiance then this is not the place for you,...More

Such a respite from bad Universal Studios theme park food. The owner greeted us with hot falafels on sticks! Fresh, great tasting, and very reasonably priced food.

Just got done with a casual dinner at Joe's. It was our first visit and when the owner found that out he made us falafel samples that were delish! Wonderfully spiced and not greasy at all. My chicken kabobs were moist and tender, the rice...More

The Falafel was one of the best I ever had! The portion was huge and I like that everything was made fresh on the spot. I would recommend coming here with friends!

You can find in LA many options for Arabic and Israeli food. But definitely, this is one of the best. Falafel, Tahini, Lafa, Pita, chicken, all really great.
