Whenever possible we prefer to support local establishments and when we heard this was such a place, we wanted to give it a try. This is a place where you order at the cash register, pay, and then wait. We had to wait about a half an hour for our dinner because mother was not there when we came in.... More

Do come here if you want a tasty, but unremarkable, meal. Don't come here if you want a pleasant setting with ambience. The restaurant is basic--you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. The plates are plastic as are the utensils. While I don't mind plastic utensils, the fork was not strong enough to be functional... More

We've been fans of Middle Eastern food for more than 40 years, and have eaten our way through Greece (twice) and Turkey. Petra ranks with the best we've had anywhere. The babagannouj and dolmas were indeed the very best. The foul and muhammara were new to us, and both were excellent. We took spanikopita and baklava back to our motel... More

This is truly a hidden gem in Tehachapi. The Mediterranean food is really good. A great selection on the menu. It does get busy so plan ahead.

Lots to choose from on the menu. Great garlic fries! Their baklava dessert is the best. Friendly service. Nice tables inside and on the patio.

Excellent food, great experience. Mediterranean Cuisine. It can get crowded, but that is the sign of good food. It is a Deli atmosphere, so not fine dining if that is what you are looking for. We go there every chance we get. Catch a movie across the street while you are there. :) We do.

This tiny little deli is a must try if you are a fan of real Mediterranean fare made to fresh right in front of you. We tried the falafel, the mediterranean salad, and the garlic fries. The falafel was very good and not greasy, and the fries were extremely garlicky. ;) Everything was made with fresh ingredients and the kitchen/grill... More

Stayed in Tehachapi and was looking for a place for a carryout back to our motel. We came across the Petra Mediterranean Deli and gave them a call. Our order was ready by the time I arrived and we had a delicious and relaxing meal after a long drive. The price was reasonable and the service was fast and friendly.

Such a wonderful place to eat in Tehachapi. The owners make you feel like family & are always willing to add or leave out any ingredient you want. The Hummus is so tasty & Chicken Shawerma wrap is one of my favorites. For those with a sweet tooth the homemade Baklava. During the winder they have a different homemade soup... More

My husband and I eat here at least once a week. The food is always fresh and delicious. I tell visitors to go there all of the time.
