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.

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

Small restaurant with a nice variety of Middle Eastern items on the menu. Everything we ordered was delicious--beef and lamb gyros, chicken kabobs and chicken scharma (sp?). All served with rice and warm pita bread. Cucumber salad with yogurt and mint was excellent and a good side for our dishes. Great pastry selection to finish the meal.

I talked to a few locals who love this restaurant but I didn't really like it. A bunch of us shared a couple combination platters. The meat was cold, chewy, and unrecognizable. Other items were greasy. I had a bellyache after dinner. I wouldn't recommend :(

The food here is superb. The gyro I had is the best I have ever eaten. Friends ordered hummus with bread everything was home made. Indoor or out side dining. Customer service was grand. The culture deserts were the greatest, only problem was what to choose.

I went here for lunch and it looked pretty shabby. I sat in the outdoor seating with friends. We arranged the tables ourselves before a waitress came outside and gave us menus. The waitress never spoke more than a few words to us. The water came out in paper coke cups. I was concerned that the food would not be... More

This is a solid choice for lunch or pick-up. The inside is of the hole-in-the-wall variety, but the food is so good! Prices vary from modest to extravagant, depending on your choice of food. Haven't tried the sweets yet, but thy look very enticing.

We went for some late night eats. The place is quirky. Service was Meh. Chicken schwerma was Meh. Gyro was good. All in all, a great alternative for late night eats, but not that impressive in the light of day.

Nice spot for casual meal. Very good tasting and very reasonably priced food. Very small indoor seating, outdoor seating available and small adjoining parking lot. Good tasting and great value.
