Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.

Still Great Middle Eastern Food

It has been many years since I was here last --- and came back again for dinner tonight. Jerusalem still has the same great authentic middle eastern food, especially the lamb shanks! My friends and I are coming back more often. Still very highly recommended, after all these years!

Pick up to go if you're claustrophobic because it's a small place and sometimes very crowded. Great hummus and cucumber salad.

I am not in this area often, but when I am, I make a point to get food at Jerusalems. Their beef and chicken Shawarma plates are to die for. The combo of meat, rice, hummus and siracha cannot be beat!

Upon arriving in Denver during the season's first snow storm, I was famished! My friend asked how hungry I was........starving but for flavorful savory food! The Jerusalem Restaurant was the perfect choice! A small sit down area (and outside patio) was decorated in a fun yet tasteful casual decor. Family owned and operated, the staff was extremely welcoming and expedient!... More

Jerusalem has always met up to its expectations. The serve generous portions, and the humus is excellent. Depending when you go, it seems like they are busy but they do a great job taking care of all customers, if your taking out or dining in.

We ordered food for pickup. The food was very good and the sizes were generous. I did have to wait 15 minutes on top of the originally quoted 20 minutes.

We were a group of seven squeezing in a meal before a DU hockey game. They quickly got us a table which was great because this place is always hopping. The service was excellent and friendly. I took the waiter up on his recommendation which did not disappoint. Our guests from out of town were a bit nervous when they... More

Jerusalem offers a nice little surprise. The food is delicious...of course the classic lamb shank being the best. The desserts are also yummy. Conveniently located at evans and university Blvd...this is a must for every foodie. Thumbs up from us
