When you see this for the first time you are not "too sure" if this is going to be any good. But don't worry the food is great and fantastic value.

The food is fantastic. There's almost always a line because this place is always buzzing. It's always buzzing because the food is great and the prices are very good. Really good value. The bread here is probably the best pita you'll get anywhere up or down the peninsula. It's a real highlight.

Always quality food and great customer service. The meat and the vegetarian dishes are both good decisions. Lunchtime weekdays and weekends are busy. Plan around those times. Small parking lot. A nice choice for something fast but never disappointed.

I came back from Berlin recently where I got used to getting Donner kebabs. This place totally reminded me of Berlin. A little bit of a Chios during that weekend. There are 3 lines: one for orders and two for pick ups. If they place a sign as to where to stand, they become for efficient. I also like how... More

Excellent Falafels but it gets busy early....The line usually moves right along but if you want to bypass the lines get there by 11:30

A small mom and pop restaurant. It is a very popular place for a falafel or a shwarma bite. Very tasty, juicy, with lots of flavorful sauces and vegetables. The soft pita bread is made on site. The employees are fast workers though they need to smile a little more.
