This place always has a short line it seems, but it goes quickly. The food is good, I got the gyro sandwich, I wish there had been more meat in it. The sandwich was only $6.50, so I think I'll ask to pay for more meat in it next time. The menu was good, I will be back to order... More

Great atmosphere and friendly service. Hummus is a must. Very relaxed indoor or outdoor seating, right near the university, young and old enjoy alike.

They deliver until 4 am via UberEats, and it's wonderful for us late night aviation workers. The hummus appetizer, my go to. The combo "super dish" my current favorite here.

I love going to Jersalem. Their food is always good. The prices seem to have gone up since the last was there but they give plenty of food. It is almost always crowded since it is next to DU so be prepared for a wait when you order.

Mediterranean and/or Lebanese cuisine is my favorite and, in my opinion, Jerusalem Restaurant is probably the best option for that type of food in central Denver. Having tried about a dozen other places, I keep returning to Jerusalem as my go to place. They have the usual selections, all prepared well and fresh tasting. They also have a dessert/sweets shop...

I love this place! My favorite is the lamb shank. They give you a large portion. I normally split it with someone. This place is also open really late so it's a great place to go for a late night meal.

We stopped in for an early dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The Lentil Soup was outstanding and the Falafel some of the best I have eaten. We enjoyed the Hummus, and Baba Ghanouj. However on our Combination Super Platter the rice was cold, had not taste. Also the meats were not hot enough. I would prefer the hummus and BG... More

This was our second time here. The food was not as good as a month or so ago. The chicken was very dry. They charged extra for the hummus on the lunch time meal (pricey at $11 plus bucks). The lentil soup is incredible. Right now that's the only thing that I would order if I ever go back. The... More

Came here for the first time. Had the lamb shank which was very tender. Best rice ever. The place is small but worth going. They also have great pastries. I love the baklava. The service was wonderful & the food came fast. Nice to try something different.
