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

We both enjoyed the Petra Platter (A lil'bit of all our favourites, hummus, falafil, baba ghanouge and tabouleh). I am happy to report that I found a Fayetteville restaurant that has the flavors and fresh taste that I learned in other states / countries. The owner of Petra is from Jordan and proud of his heritage just as I am... More

Everything in Petra Cafe tastes fresh and the baklava is really great. I am a pretty harsh critic of hummus (I make my own every week), but their hummus satisfies me in terms of a rich flavor. Get the Petra Plate and you won't go wrong!

This was very good, and you can't beat the price. I had the Mayo platter with grape leaves, baba ganoush, and lamb gyro meat. And I love that they thinly slice their gyro meat!. I would definitely go back.

My daughter suggest we meet at Petra's for lunch. We went and I was glad we did. The place is small but the food is great. We had a combo plate, Turkish coffee, Humus and baklava. The service is great and the food was fresh and tasty.

Again, I am not from this country so I would never critique somebody who is from there. Love the flavors, very fresh, great place to visit.

I have passed this resteraunt many times over the years. I finally decided to stop and give it a try. Indide was very small. only a few tables. I decided to shy away from the standard gyro sandwich and tried a few things new to me. The hummus was wonderful, falafel was truly the best I have ever had. I... More
