Authentic, Friendly, Inexpensive, Tasty

Petra is a twin of nearby Jaffa Café. When you enter, a host treats you to a slice of delicious homemade pita to munch while you wait for your order. Unusually friendly staff. Meals, lunch and dinner, are offered in four categories: Plates ($8.99-10.99), Pita Sandwiches ($6.99-8.99), Kabob Plates... read more

Its probably because Cal Poly hasn't started its semester but to find a late night bite that's not fast food is not easy to do in this town. That said, we got a Chicken Swarma pizza and some Hummus to go pretty late. It was great. A nice combo and the garlic sauce is a great idea. It goes well... More

This place was PACKED! I did a little research on this place, and it's quite the hotspot in SLO. I had to have the chicken shawarma, which was packed with flavor. I devoured it. The pita was so fluffy. I recommended this place when in SLO.

We bring our kids here a bunch of times and food is always the same. Great favor and good customer service. We would recommend this place to family and friends.

Everything was really fresh and tasted great. The hummus, chicken schwarma, falafel were all fabulous. Would definitely go back.

Very popular on a Friday night, just outside of downtown San Luis Obispo. Limited outdoor seating, very casual

Decently priced, tasty Greek food in the heart of SLO. Have stopped here twice after a work meeting to quickly eat before the long drive home. On previous visits, I've found most restaurants in SLO to be slow-ish, fitting the laid-back nature of this beautiful area. But, when I'm in town for business, I'm usually on a tight schedule, so...

My husband and I had the chance to drop into Petra one evening and while we were initially surprised because we expected more of a "sit down" atmosphere, we ended up taking the food to go and really enjoying it. The take-out was very fast, and we enjoyed fabulous gyros, and shawarma along with their pita (fresh baked daily). Don't... More

My wife & I had lunch here, splitting falafel and a gyro plate. Both were very good, and my wife especially liked the falafel. There was more than enough food for the two of us.
