I love to try new place and while shopping at my favorite thrift store, came across Babylon-a middle-eastern restaurant. From the outside, I thought it was a hole in the wall place, but upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised to see a warm, art filled room with spacious tables, a family table, and eye appealing art on the wall.

this is our local middle eastern restaurant and we're lucky. the food is very tasty, the portions generous (you will leave full) and the prices are great. sitting outside is nice in the summertime (good people watching) and this summer on fridays from 11am - 4pm you can get a falafel sandwich for 99 cents, that's an amazing deal.
