We ordered take out based on reviews concerning lines. The reviews we read were on point. Everything we ordered was delish. We both had a plate. Mine was the Shawarma combo plate and my husband got the Dolma Plate. Excellent!

Cedar has quickly become one of our family's favorite choices for a great meal, either dine-in or take-out. No fuss and reliably excellent food--and the pitas are made fresh on-site and in view behind the counter. Hummus & babaganouj are particularly rich & flavorful.
