I love the food but the last 4 orders (take out orders, of course) have been wrong. It's very disappointing when I get back to my office and my meal isn't what I wanted. I've been a customer at this Sticks location as well as the Pantops location for a very long time. There's been turnover in staff lately so... More

I'm a big fan of Sticks in Richmond and was happy to introduce my boyfriend to their yummy food while passing through Charlottesville recently. He was very happy that's where we stopped as we both really enjoyed our platters (chicken for me, kibbeh for him) with the fabulous cilantro-lime sauce and my favorite hummus ever. Definitely a must visit for... More

This is a small place that was constantly busy while we were there. The food was great! Definitely fast! Plastic plates but silverware for eat in, small paper cups for water. The kebob was excellently prepared, Rice done well. Salad was small but good. Music was a bit loud but fun!

Not expensive, walk in and order, Not a lot of seating, but service is great and you get take out pretty fast I especially like the lamb kebobs. They are a supporter of Hospice of the Piedmont.

Great for a quick and casual meal. Went with friends for lunch. The chicken kebobs are delicious -- tender and juicy. The hummus is amazing!

A friend and I went for lunch yesterday. The food was good, but our visit turned sour when we asked for a towel to clean off our sticky table and actually handed a towel to clean off the table ourselves! The table was VERY sticky, and I would have thought that when I asked for a towel, they would have... More

Food was ok. Rice are half cooked. Quantity is very low. Falafel are fine. Nothing extra ordinary. Biggest turn off was a hair in limeade. Low in hygiene standards. There are better places in Charlottesville for Mediterranean food.

We eat here at least once a month, because of the consistency, flavor and health of the foods that are offered. The counter people are always kind, quick and ready to help. The food is out within 5 minutes. I have eaten their hummus (a distinctive smoky variety that I wish I could duplicate at home) dozens of times and... More

To me the chicken just way over cooked, I got the wrap last month, the yogurt cucumber sauce tasty but the overwhelming flavor of burnt and over dry chicken a turn off. I know a lot of people go there, it's fast and good price, but just not for me. May try again later. We arrived at 11:30 before the... More

Ate lunch with co workers. Got the steak kabobs with cilantro lime sauce and pita wrap, it was delish! I also love their rice and hummus! Busy at lunch, but worth the wait. Would return, and definitely recommend.
