If you are going to take a girl out on a date, this isn't the place for you. If you and some buddies want really good gyros and smoke some hookah, this is your place. Food is always excellent, hookah is always fantastic, and though could use some updating, it's a really awesome place to go

Insomnia Café is not swanky. No valet parking or wine lists. What it is, is GOOD. Freshly-brewed tea with mint. Marinated, tender pieces of chicken in the gyros, house-recipe sauces that are delicious, steak tips that put a steakhouse to shame and you can even order a cup of grilled mushooms to put on 'em, to make them even better....

This place may look a little off the wall with the hookahs, but the food is hot, fresh, and generous portions. Hummus is outstanding, gyros are big and filling.

Sketchy is my thang! But this place looks super-sketch. The food, though. Hot, fresh, tasty. You might see weird-ish stuff happening and think it's some kind of shady deal, but it is not. That'd be a guy ordering a hookah. Hookah-smoking takes place outside, and no, it is not a bong!

Ordered the Gyro Plate for a little over $10, tasted amazing, I felt like I got my money's worth, what more can I say? Good eats.

This is a small restaurant in a little strip mall but if you like Middle Eastern food, you'll really enjoy it. They also have a good selection of traditional American fare as well.

The food here is good. We always seem to catch ourselves going back to Insomnia over and over. The prices are reasonable for the most part and everything is cooked fresh to order always. The pitas/gyros are my favorite. The place doesn't always look the cleanest but I think it is just an artifact of the location that it is... More
