Stopped on my way back from the Super Bloom at Carrizo Plain National monument. Got the Veggie wrap with eggplant, bell peppers and mushrooms. The sauce was great, plenty of garlic too. I'm going to stop again next time I drive through. It's also a great place for Pacific Crest Trail thru hikers. Outside seating and inside has small tables.... More

Petra, owned by by the same couple that own Perfetto across the street, shares that restaurant's commitment to high quality, freshly prepared food. Everything is good. The meatball sandwiches are the best ever.

Trip Advisor (and my sister) guided us to Petra. We chose kabobs, dolmas, spanikopita and Greek salad. All choices were excellent. Small embellishments and super fresh ingredients made the difference. Busy cooks and a proprietor who seemed intently caring and visited with many regulars provided friendly ambience. It is not fancy, rather a spare operation, but the food is well... More

This place is very popular among the locals and for good reason. Food is very good. Inside and outside dining options. This place is not fancy but the food is delicious. The kabobs are my personal favorite.

This place is great. They have the best garlic fries that are covered with fresh garlic and taste awesome.My other favorite food there is the lamb shwarma.

Food was okay, maybe I just don't like Mediterranean food? We ordered all different things, the cheese sticks were the best, Kids love um. We sat outside it was a beautiful day! Oh they have the best lemonade!

Everything I have had here is really good. The hummus is silky smooth and garlicky. The dolmas are just nice and lemony and the tzatziki sauce is really good. They have a wide variety on the menu and I have not had anything bad. The garlic fries are to die for!

Stopped here after a day at work in Tehachapi before the drive home. I was so happy to see (what I spell/know as) kibbe (they spell it a little different on their menu), Its an appetizer. These are the real deal. Hand made and deep fried (we often called them Armenian footballs because that's what they look like). Its minced... More

I have heard such great things about this local Mediterranean deli in downtown Tehachapi. I was not disappointed. We arrived early for lunch before the lunch crowd arrived. The smells of fresh backed goodies met us outside. Petra's has an extensive menu which includes all your Mediterranean favorites as well as a hamburger, meatball sub & pizza. You order at... More
