This Purple Onion has the absolutely best beef kabobs over rice and Greek salad with pita a fresh hummus. I topped it off with cheesecake. The drive through service is superb. I make by at least twice a month.

Had my customary pleasant lunch of steak kabobs over zesty metatarainen salad, Pita bread and fresh hummus. Enjoyed a piece of cheesecake too. All this via the speedy drive-thru with the every present courteous staff. Been there many, many times and I'll definitely be back again. I recommend it to all.

Either steak kabbob or salmon are my top choices. Their humas and pita bread are excellent along with salad and the great salad. The Pelham Alabama location is best.

What an unusual place to find in an area surrounded by chain comfort food restaurants. We wanted something a bit healthier and the night's special of grilled salmon with hummus, greek salad, and wild rice was great! Don't let the counter service appearance fool you, if you were seated and waited on, it would just cost more. I go to... More

Purple Onion is a great little restaurant in Pelham. If offers counter service, but it is not fast-food. They have very good Gyros and make their own pita chips (fantastic). Be sure to pick up a bag of chips and some Hummis dip.

They seem to have a little of everything on their menu here, with a main focus on Mediterranian. It's set up like a fast food place, the cheeseburgers and fries were very good.

Grab an omellette any time of the day. It's not the best place and I wouldnt reccommend it if you are visiting, but when there's one next to your house, go.

Decent burgers, but everything here is fairly greasy, even the Mediterranean fare.
