Quick Bite

My hubby and I stopped and I had a falafel plate (falafel, tabouli, and hummus) and he had a shawarma plate. There was a lot of food and it was all very good.

Stopped here in July for lunch. Food ok average. Falafel pieces are one of the smallest pieces I have ever seen I have eaten in Middle East countries and they are twice the size. Tabooli average too. Not a place I would eat at again though.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat and was extremely delighted. The restaurant was very busy, and had a few difficult customers, but they treated everybody perfectly and we got our food quickly. Will definitely visit again!

Take out orders are not worth it. Done in. Food arrived cold, canned in small inadequate containers and they forgot half the food and the beverages. The staff were clearly arguing when we called in and the messed up or order. They did not credit us for the missing food.

Quick, delicious, and more than enough. The special is usually 6 falafel balls, a gyro with tsaziki and salad and a drink, for $10.. They don't refil your soda. Good, more and more restaurants have started stopping that practice. Try to get a table outside (4 tiny tables) Or just take it across to the benches in front of the... More

Fast friendly service, great place for a quick bite while on the Pearl Street Mall. Plenty of seating inside and some is available outside on the mall. Nice restroom.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch while walking around on Pearl St. We both had falafel sandwiches and were very pleased with them. The restaurant is simple and service is fast. I will definitely return!

Not good. Food was cold and a mess. No silverware or napkins. Forgot the beverages but charged me. This place used to be good. So disappointed.

We saw Falafel King in the Fodor's Colorado book and decided to give it a try. It is casual and quick but the food is delicious!
