authentic Jordanian food, not many tables or places to sit or stand. You wait outside the restaurant while your table becomes available. We had hummus, gyros, foule, falafel(very small), pita.

This is the best. And the prices are great. Hard to get a seat at times. worth the wait. They have platters with most of the items on the menu.

This is a great place for vegetarians with a large portion of the menu just being that way without a special section. The only thing, the Turkish Coffee is like syrup it's so strong, and very sweet, so beware. The place is also tiny, tiny. Probably like three or four tables and bar seating if I remember. But the food... More

The title says it all. Tiny little diamond in the rough. Small and tucked away. You could almost miss it. Service is wonderful and food is mouth watering.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! Very particular hours.... just open for lunch. However, this restaurant introduced me to the Mediterranean flavors of the world! Great prices with quality food! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Petra Cafe is one of my go to lunch spots in Fayetteville! Go check it out for yourself!

Let's put it this way. I have a friend who moved to Seattle, and said in three years he could never find a mediterranean place as good as Petra Cafe. I know people who make it a priority to eat there when they come home to visit--and I go there as often as I can! Delicious and friendly.

This cozy little restaurant is perfect for a quick lunch date with a friend that won't leave your wallet empty. The prices are fair and food is fantastic. I had the soup and sandwich combo with the Super Pocket and Potato Soup, with Grape Leaves on the side. Every bite was satisfying and I left comfortably full but not feeling... More

Great food and a nice price. We found the area restaurants to be quite high in cost but this place had good portions for fair prices. Quaint seating and super nice staff. The Gyro I had was excellent!

We arrived at this tiny restaurant at 11:30a.m. on a Sat., so expected to be in line for a while, based on previous reviews, but our timing was perfect. Two people at a tiny table just inside the door left as we walked in so we plunked down. Service is a bit slow, but worth it. The baba ganush (spelling?)... More
