We decided to try a different restaurant in Tehachapi this trip through town. Generous portions. Husband had the lamb shank, which he enjoyed. I had the chicken Shwarma that had the tiniest slivers of chicken I've ever seen, but the flavor was good. I would...More

The food here was excellent, and reasonably priced. Bursting with flavor and large portions make it a great choice. Convenient with street parking, it offers indoor and outdoor seating. They were understaffed, but worth the wait. If you love garlic, you will love this place.

While not the absolute best Mediterranean restaurant I have ever been to (I've been to many, all over the place, from Greece to California), Petra is solidly good and tasty. You are not likely to go wrong by stopping here, which is not something I...More

Stopped for lunch after a glider trip. Small restaurant with big flavor. Had the chicken shawarma for first time...and falafels! Loved them both. Reasonable prices. Quick service and friendly. Continually busy so obviously a favorite of the local community.
