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!

There is a lot of food on the Pearl Street Mall. Maybe I'lm just a creature of habit, but I find myself here more times than not. I get the special - gyro, 6 falafel balls, drink for $10. Unlike most places like this, there are no refills on drinks.

never disappoints. The only place I go in town for gyros and falafal. It's not a fancy spot but great for picking up dinner to bring home to the family or to stop in for lunch.

I am a falafel fanatic. When I go to a restaurant that serves these delicious morsels, it's a no-brainer, I have to order it to at least taste them (just in case they've perfected it). Well, when I go to Falafel King it goes way beyond taste. I personally like to dip them in the best hummus I've ever tasted... More

It's not the most lavish. It's not the most expensive. It's certainly not the largest. What Falafal King is can simply be put, it's Middle Eastern food fast. Falafal King is a small franchise, three storefronts that I know of, that serves great fresh, fast falafel and Middle Easter food. I first tripped across it when I ventured to Boulder's... More

OK, I am not a big fan of watching the staff prep my food and weigh it each time that they add something, then removing a little lettuce to get the weight right. Also don't like the manager getting on the girl while she is checking me out, pretty tacky. After all of that weight of the food and yelling... More

This is a campus style joint located on Pearl Street in Boulder. The food offerings are surprisingly superb and very fairly priced. I love the shwarma pita sandwich, and my spouse says the gyro is great. The falafel platter is also first rate. Friendly staff, clean restaurant.

Gyros et al on the Mall. I've tried many of the other Greek places in Boulder and I keep coming back here. It has a certain atmosphere and the food is always good. It tastes like Greek street food, but healthier.

Located in the Pearl Street Mall area, this is a small little place tucked away in between art and clothing shops. Nice decor, colors, columns and cute glass lighting fixtures make this a very enjoyable little eatery. The falafel was hot and tasty and wrapped in a delicious fresh pita with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and tahini sauce. They also... More
