This is a little place in a row of larger restaurants on 2nd street. It seems unassuming as you walk in but has a comfortable atmosphere. The food was just what we wanted. Tasty, well prepared and quick. The server was knowledgeable about the food...More

First of all, the food was great. However, what stood out was the service we got. The waitress was nice and attentive, and she had the restaurant under good control. I would definitely come here again.

Since we were touring the capitol we needed someplace near where we'd parked and this was just a block away. The menu was impressive, though I had trouble finding something I really wanted, so had fattoush (Lebanese salad for $3.99) and a small serving of...More

If it's over $50.00, yes. It will show up as a line item titled "gratuity" and it's only calculated at 15 percent.

Yes. They will sub fresh cut veggies for pita for all meals including it if you ask. Additionally, if you get a platter instead of wrap you are golden. They also use a separate fryer for their falafel which is gluten free... More
