I've eaten at Petra on three separate occasions, not because I like their food but simply because it's conveniently located, being across the street from the cinema. I've tried three different selections, and each time I felt that I was grossly overcharged for food that was not really that spectacular. Seating is somewhat limited, and both the owner and the...

Having lived two years in Turkey and traveling throughout the Middle East, I expected a lot - and I wasn't disappointed. As a local, I visit this restaurant frequently and I have tried virtually everything on their menu. My favorite meal is the Lamb Kabob dinner. Although it is an order at the counter and sit down restaurant with inside... More

Shawarma, Greek pizza, kabobs, hummus, it's all so, so good, and so unlikely in Tehachapi, but I'll take it; especially because it's a family run with passion by people that genuinely care about the community and their cultural heritage. Patronize them when you feel like some really, really good middle eastern influenced food.

Great Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food. Owner is from Jerusalem. No complaints about flavor or quality of food. A little confusing when ordering. Come in, order, pay find a table and sit down. They give you a number to put on the table like at Carl's Jr. That aside, I was pleasantly surprised. Try the anti-pasto salad, or Greek salad.... More

I could tell immediately that this was a great choice for a meal; there were several people already eating who had happy, satisfied looks upon their faces. If that weren't enough, the delicious smells wafting through the door made it complete. We ordered the kebabs (lamb and chicken) plate, a side of baba ghanoush and a side of falafels. Everything...

Had the Chicken Schwarma Sandwich - it was more than enough for 3 meals! the Chicken was tender and very flavorful-had been marinated in spices. Really good. They also put hummus on the sandwich, and it said it was on Lavash bread, but I didn't realize it would be an entire lavash. Really too big for one meal. My husband... More

Our family visits Petra's every time we go to Tehachapi. We've always been very satisfied. I can't get my husband to try anything but the eggplant sandwich, it's pretty good. The owners are always there and answer any questions about the food.

I ordered with a couple coworkers and ordered one to-go for the guy back at the office. They brought out the food and we ate and I thought they had forgotten the to-go order, but when we were ready to leave they gave it to me. Good food. Fast/Friendly Service. Inexpensive. Very Authentic. Highly Recommend.

This place has been consistently good with yummy food and friendly service. The garlic fries are delicious. I personally like their falafel pita but have also really enjoyed their chicken shawarma and gyro.
