Best lunch special...

The swarma is tender, with fresh bread. The hummus is smooth, lots of rice, fresh salad, great flavor in everything. It is fast and convenient. Nice outdoor seating. Came highly recommended by the locals. It's only 8 hrs for a carryout from home...i look forward to next time!

This place is the bomb if you like garlicky, Mediterranean food. No ambiance at all, it's in a strip mall, but the food is so good they line up out the door. Just be sure you are not in close quarters with someone after eating here....garlic breath.

I cannot say enough about this place, i just love it. The meat is fresh and made right there in front of you. Love their hummus, the best falafels, and shwormas are amazing. I like the lady up front, she already knows my family. Just make sure u come early they run out of food!

We ate here on a whim and had one of the dinners for two. Delicious, wish we had ordered dinner for four and taken more home! Even with the dinner for two we had food to take home. Can't wait to go back. Salads were ok, the meat, rice, plated veggies were outstanding. Atmosphere isn't anything to talk about, but... More

This is a fast-paced place! You place your order at the cash register before you sit down. At lunch time, there is a line almost to the door. The lunch special is a surprising amount of food- easily enough for two meals. You get to choose a meat (I've had both the beef/lamb schwarma and the chicken schwarma. I think... More

I'm no expert in Mediterranean food, but this was good. I had the beef and lamb, my dad had the chicken. It also came with rice, hummus and a pita. Delicious to the last bite. May be too spicy (not hot, just different than your normal spices) for some, but you really should give it a try. Busy at lunch,... More

This is the best med. rest. my family has ever been to. We will go out of our way when driving through Lexington to go. The food is so good, we would probably pay more for it (don't tell the owners!).

If you are looking for a traditional Lebanese Grilled Food then you are in the right place. They have different types of Arabian Salad such as Fattosh and Tabula. They also do the Shawarma ( checked and beef ) just the way you like it

I got two yummy delicious lunch specials Togo. They come with hummus, greek salad, rice, and entree. $4.99 sandwiches look great and a great value! If you have not been, GO!
