    I've never had Mediterranean food as close to home cooking as Palmyra! Awesome family at work from prep to grill to service. Grandma prepping is the only proof you need for authenticity!

    Family owned restaurant, super good food and amazing family. We chatted with the owner and got free baklava, which was the best baklava I've ever had! Falafel and mujadara wraps yumm.

    The owner is a remarkable man. Generous and engaging. The lentil soup, golden yellow in color was rich and flavorful. The Falafel wrap with eggplant was delicious. A place for time traveling.

    Amazingly fresh, delicious Syrian food. Best I've had outside Syria. Fantastic Babaganouj, felafel, tabouli, ecstatic desserts, great Turkish coffee. The owner is a warm, delightful host. YES!

    This place is super cheap and delicious, great for lunch. Better than Hayes and Kebab and less expensive. Plus the staff is very friendly and hospitable.

    Staff is friendly, food plentiful. The place is not "sit and eat" friendly though. There's a few big booths, usually with space to share, but I've not yet seen any sharing.

    The chicken kebab meal is a lot of food for a low price and the shawarma wraps are the best lunch deal in the neighborhood.

    Kebab or Shawarma plates are the way to go. The family that runs this place are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

    Super friendly neighborhood family-run joint; chicken shawarma platter with an extra pita is always a solid choice.

    You can't go wrong with their platters: falafel, chicken or beef. Play rush and roulette. It'll be a safe bet.

    The foul (pron. "fool") is Syrian style -- fragrant with just a hint of spiciness. Try it with humus and pita. Think Mediterranean salsa.
