Abraham rocks!

Great value and fantastic food! This is one instance where you don't judge a book by its cover. Who knew you could turn a sea can I to a fantastic little restaurant? Abraham did! Best shawarma ever!

My wife and I had read all the reviews on this restaraunt and had to try it for ourself. Well we were pleasantly surprised with this little gem of a restaraunt, great food and a great owner! The owner explained the menu items to us and recommended two specific entries. The food is made to order and is fresh as... More

We stopped here for dinner one night because we didn't want a typical sit down meal and we were really hungry. The bottom line is that the food was truly outstanding but it took a while to get there. We waited so long that two other tables before us left without eating. The owner felt terrible and begged us to... More

The owner is as wonderful as is his food he makes. If you just ask what is good, he will kinda tell you what to order. We ate there a couple of times and loved it. Good prices for the amount of food you get. Always had food left to eat later.

Every year we always come to Little Jerusalem. The food is fresh, hot, tasty and great. The mixed platter of lamb, beef and chicken is so tasty. The portions are large. The salad, hummus and rice are really hard to beat. His daughter, I believe her name is Amy was always asking us if we needed anything; very friendly. I... More

Just really good schwarma, at a good price. Just ask Abraham to give you what he thinks is best - mixed, lamb, whatever - I really like the pitas, but the plates, with salad, rice, and hummus are hard to beat.

Fantastic BBQ combo of chicken and lamb shawarma; one portion enough for 2 people! Excellent flavors and perfectly prepared; exceptional seasoning.

Chef greeted us along with his daughter, assured us he would cook us our meal to perfection. So sincere and sweet I hate to have any negative comments. All was very good but not really for our taste buds, depends on the person. No real complaints just not into flavors or seasoning of this type of food.
