Just had dinner for the umpteenth time! Chicken schnitzel platter with rice and salad, yum. I highly recommend Jake’s. Casual atmosphere, quiet enough to have an easy conversation, and terrific, reasonably priced food. What more could you want?

Excellent food, good variety and nice people. I only wish they had ice tea (not Snapple) and then it would be perfect.

Jake and his staff are really nice and the falafel wraps (with hummus) rock! My friends reported delicious salads and kebobs.

Jake's Falafel is a place to get a good dose of the Middle East without ducking for cover. The hummus, always the litmus test for such a locale is quite good. The grape leaves are a little sweet for my taste. The spicy falafel is...More
