Tried gyros and sharwarma pita wrap. Pretty good although I thought the gyros was a bit too salty for me . That is a very minor aspect of it. I was in a hurry and so this was cheap and fast and I do recommend to at least try if you are in Boulder

A little hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but a real live spit for the gyros meat, and absolutely amazing falafel. Prices are great, grab your meal and head outside to watch the street performers!

We are the NATO Mediterranean food. Cooked a chorba with our nutritionist and then wanted lunch. Found Falafel King on TripAdvisor and went for it. Good choice. We had gyros and falafel. Meat was grilled with onions and served on a soft pita. Falafel was crunchy. Gyros stuffed with fresh greens and tomatoes. We'll be back

We love coming to the mall, ordering up some great food here and sitting at the tables outside to people watch while we enjoy our falafels and gyros. We used to rate this with 5 stars, but it seems the prices have gone up while the quantity has gone down. Still, it's a great choice for a meal on the... More

Had a great hike on the Foothills and headed to town to eat something light but healthy. We found this small restaurant (at least the outside looks cozy, small). We made the right choice had a delicious meal we wanted; service was quick and we felt money well spent. I would recommend it!

Appearance wise, this place has all the trappings of a cafeteria line or a fast food restaurant, but that's not the point. They make the best gyros in Boulder!

The Falafel King is a classic Boulder/Falafel experience. I have been eating there for decades. As a vegetarian, I love their vegetarian choices, and cannot tell you how good their falafel is. A culinary delight.
