OK, so we were told by another visitor not to miss this place and so we HAD to stop... wow, are we so glad we did! We actually ended up stopping twice, on the way south and then again on the way north!! The falafels are sooo good... I think falafels are an "art" as they can be too dry... More

We both had the sharama plates. Super good! Plenty of different sauces to chose from. The pita bread- fresh and amazing! My only complaint is I had the taste of garlic in my mouth all night! Lol guess I had too much garlic and lemon sauce. But how could I resist?! Great selection of beers and drinks. Would definitely go... More

Healthy food choices, friendly service, and no frills dining. There are options for vegetarians and meat eaters. It's a little pricey but the food seems homemade and tastes delicious. The pita bread is amazing!

Serves a range of Mediterranean style food, various meat stuffed in very fresh pitta (lamb, gyro and shawarma chicken). Great hummus and salads looked good. Quick service, tables inside and out.

We went here very late and hungry. The ordering and serving process were very fast! Most of the dishes were delicious, especially the dessert whose name I don't remember. The price is very reasonable. Unfortunately we did not order pizza. Hope I can visit again and have a taste of the pizza.

Quite a few items but the pizza's are particularly good. Try the chicken garlic! I don't eat carbs very often but when I do I go here! Quite a few options.

The Petra is a really nice little cafe in SLO Town where you can get some quite delicious middle eastern food. Their humus is the best around, and well, all the food here is excellent. They also have a very extensive beer selection, and TVs to watch sports. You can eat inside or outside. A well-deservedly popular place.

Simply love the food and service here. More importantly, it is pet friendly. We have consistently ordered Lamb Swaharma and Falafel plate dishes. The kids get their gyros and they are delicious and price is reasonable. This time around, we ordered the large pizza and you can choose 2 different options on your pizza. Got to try the BBQ chicken... More
