A Great Place to Eat Well Quickly

I first started patronizing Wahib's in th 1970s when they had a converted hot dog stand to serve their authentic, delicious food when it was the only choice for this type of food for many miles. Today, there are other choices, but few where you get authenticity, quality, and value without having... read more

We often go to Wahib's. We have been customers for over 30 years! He first opened a small place on the site of an old OrangeJulius in Alhambra. The quality of his food has remained excellent! We will remain customers as long as we're able!

The buffet selection is small but the food is authentic as per my Middle Eastern friend. One of the very few Middle Eastern place in this area.

We try to visit this restaurant whenever we are in the LA / Alhambra area. This is a great place. The food is always authentic, handmade and wonderful. The owner/chef and his wife have been working the place, every time we've been there. Great staff and waiters as well. Can't say enough about this place.

We really enjoy eating here. I highly recommend the Hummus on pita bread. We always bring a full container home with us.

We just happened to be in Alhambra, CA and asked someone where they recommended to go for lunch and was told to go to Wahib's for Mediterranean food. A more accurate description is Lebanese as far as I know. They have a great all-you-can-eat buffet for $12.95 ($10.95 for seniors). All the items were delicious - chicken, baba ghanoush (which...

They provide both open buffet and regular menu. I prefer open buffet and they have high quality Lebanese food. Ask for the fresh toasted breed and the lemoned water.

Wahib's Middle Eastern Resturant began in the early 1980's housed in a former Orange Julius stand across the street from where the current resturant resides. The current building/location (910 E. Main St., Alhambra, CA 91801) was a butcher shop in an earlier life. As business grew the resturant expanded into the adjoining building and has been upgraded very nicely over... More

As a non arabic person I was a little worried about the food, but my apprehension was unnecessary. The service was good and friendly, the advice about the menu given was informative. I recommend the lamb chops, they were amazing!

We have been here a few times and enjoyed their lunch buffet greatly. For around $10, you get to enjoy a great variety of hot dishes, salads, and desserts. I love their rice dishes (2). Kabab, grape leaf wraps, stuffed cabbage, fried fish filet (yum!), roasted chicken, stewed vegetables, curry, all delicious. Make sure you try their garlic sauce, adds... More
