Just the way I like it

The ambiance is like a typical fast food joint, simple and clean. Since falafel is fast food, this is the right setting. don't expect a fancy or trendy place. The service is very nice, polite and friendly. But the real reason for the 5 stars is the food: This is the best falael I ate in... read more

This is our fourth visit to Joe’s. Each successive visit has been a bit more of a let down (Feb = 5 stars, April twice = 4 stars, and Aug = 3 stars.) On this visit, the food was not up to standards and the service was actually surly. I had called to find out the daily specials. Unfortunately, the... More

Loved it. Tried the gyro platter and the salmon salad. Both were delicious. One of the chefs gave us some falafel to try (on the house). Best ever. Friendly staff, great food at a great price. Love it!

With a modestly dressed interior, don't be alarmed, for they clearly spend more time on creating delicious dishes. The falafels are oh so tasty! They have a great option on the menu to have an entree consisting of a variety of their grilled meat. So you pretty much get to try their menu in one sitting.

Joe's Falafel is my go-to place whenever I'm too lazy to cook dinner (trust me, it happens often). My go-to dish is the chicken kabob plate. It comes with a generous helping of chicken over a bed of rice, plus a side of salad and hummus. It also comes with a thick pita, but you should make sure to grab... More

I had the chicken shawarma in the homemade lafa since I have had that dish may times in the time I can be a very good opinion giver. You could see the meat cooking right behind the counter, and the bread is made right there in front of you. It was so fresh and delicious! Joe actually brought us an... More

I have never been so excited to write a review! And a 5 star review, nonetheless (I'm a harsh critic)! We drove over to Joe's Falafel after a hike up to the Hollywood sign. The owner Joe and everyone on staff was so welcoming and attentive! As soon as we (a group of 14 college kids) sat down, he rushed... More

When you get a chance to visit in the Middle East and experience Mediterranean restaurant, you find that the food taste so much better and not just because of its quality. One of the most important ingredient in a Mediterranean restaurant is the HOSPITALITY! a place where you always feel welcomed and almost always get something you did not expect.... More
