    The combos are a great value, but I think the gyro meat is the best! Ohhh and the humus is pretty tasty indeed..

    This is not a fancy joint, but it dishes out outrageous falafel, hummus, and shawarma and it is open late into the night. Baklava is a highlight here. [Eater 38 Member]

    Aside from limited parking, don't let the dive look scare you off. This place has amazing sheesh ta'ouk and gyros. Definitely try the meat combo plate if you want a little of everything.

    I loooove this place! It's open late and a good place to get food after leaving the bars and clubs. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Definitely try a pastry while you're there.

    This DU hangout with its ramshackle patio doesn't look like much, but it's one of Denver's most beloved restaurants. Read more

    This place has the best Middle Eastern food in Denver! Order the Kallayah with half hummus, half rice. It's a lot of food, so you'll have leftovers.

    Sometimes you just need a falafel at 2 in the morning. This is the place. Tiny, jam-packed, great food, and they keep serving it up all night long. #SIA11

    I'm a huge fan of this place. Just don't expect the nicest wait staff after midnight. They've been dealing with drunk idiots so cut them a break and be polite, it'll get you a lot faster service.
