Stopped by with a friend at 2:30 after skipping the wait at 30hop down the street. Good falafel on pita. Quite inexpensive and good food. Has a semi-fast food atmosphere. Very fast and friendly service.

While spending some time in Iowa I decided to stop in here based on the reviews and they are spot on. The food excellent!! Don't expect anything fancy but the chicken shawarma is some of the best I have ate anywhere.

Very little nice cozy joint not too far from the mall and downtown. Food is good, reasonably priced. Service is friendly and excellent. Definitively a place to visit again.
