That is what they do at Zankou Chicken, served with good Mediterranean sides. While the place isn't grand, the prices are fair, and the food is good.

Fast food outlet offering sit in or takeaway. The food is mostly wraps and kebabs with a variety of side orders such as salads, rice or hummus. No chips though.(Chips as in UK meaning!) We ate their twice and enjoyed the food.

Plenty of lip smacking food at a decent price. Chicken was flavorful and moist, falafel was the real deal. Can't wait to get back.

Small and family friendly counter service with table seating. The Chicken, Falafal and Trip-Tip Shwarma plates were delicious. Side dishes of hummus, salad and matabol were also excellent. Very reasonable prices as well. Easy street parking. Service got a bit slow when it got busier,...More

Tried the chicken, beef and sausage (there were three of us) and all were good. This is fast food, stand-in-line and order, sit on plastic chairs so allow for that. But it's an interesting take on things with its own flair.

Have been coming to Zankou for years. Amazingly consistent and delicious. The schwaerma (beef) is great, and the tarna (chicken) is a close second. Get them either in a pita wrap or as a plate with a couple sides...my favorites are the tabbouleh, humus, and...More
