Whenever I'm in South San Francisco, I make sure to stop in and taste the delicious falafel sandwich. The shawarma sandwich is also good.

I've been eating here for years, and have always enjoyed the food, the service and now the atmosphere.

We stopped here for lunch and all chose the Schwamas (sp?): two chicken, one beef. Everything was freshly prepared in front of us, about $20 for all three, we all loved our food. Quite large portions. Quick, fast, casual.

This is a great hole in the wall located in an industrial section of South San Francisco. They offer authentic Middle Eastern food at very reasonable prices. Get there early at lunch time as they do not have too many tables. Their Falafel is the best in the Bay Area.
