    The falafel is delicious! I rarely eat vegetarian and I think it's the best thing on their menu. Also, the portions are huge!

    The Pita you can get here is stuffed to the maximum and therefore a challenge to eat, but it's delicious.

    A great quick lunch place. The bowl is a pretty great deal for under $10, and you can top it with a big selection of toppings - pickles and carrots #ftw.

    Not sure how I have not discovered this before. Build you own pita like chipotle. Almost go as far as to say it tastes better! And at under $7 you cant lose

    Sad to say I didn't like this place. The falafels were too doughy & the pitas too.  There is a better Pita place 1 block away. Trust me on this.  Search it.  I will not name it here to be polite.

    I have to give credit where it's due. This is good stuff. But the Israeli couscous is not Israeli, nor is it couscous. It's ARABIC maftool. And I promise it's yummy.

    Hummus with falafel and two pitawas were less than $6. That's cheaper than a food truck, tastes better, and you can sit inside!

    Sweet potato fries, falafel, and pita were reasonably good. Hummus was a bit suspect. Didn't taste like any of the things that hummus is usually made of, made me wonder what I was eating. Bit creepy.

    As someone who grew up eating Mediterranean food, I find the food too oily. The hummus is not bad, and the spicy sauce (I tried the green one) is not that spicy.

    Go for the "laffa"sandwich instead of the pita if you're hungry. It's like a middle-eastern burrito.
