Love love love this place! It's clean and the food was great. Not only were there plenty of food choices there were also plenty of drink choices. Make sure to try the lemongrass ginger green teas! Also loved the red quinoa salad. The restaurant is in the style of Moe's Southwestern or Chipotle. It's a casual place but plenty of... More

We have often walked past Garbanzo Mediterranean Grille and have talked about trying it out. We popped in at last to have lunch with one of our 3 boys (the 3 year old) The restaurant was better than expected. They offer a variety of choices to suit all different customers, meat, vegetarian and child friendly. They have high chairs for... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor for a light dinner while staying at a hotel overnight near BWI airport. We are looking for an excuse to go back there even though it is 2 hours from home. It is primarily a lunch place that is also open at dinnertime in a mini mall near Walmart, 5 Guys and another... More

I have tried Mediterranean food in almost all cities that I visited but Garbanzo is by far the best food that I ever ate in a Mediterranean restaurant. What makes it unique is the warm pita that they make and serve when you order your food. The portion size is good and I could not finish my food. The Falafel... More

As others have said, this place offers good, healthy alternative lunch and dinner option in sea of chain restaurants. The staff are friendly and they need to be to explain the complicated ordering system. The options are endless and there's something for everyone here.

This place is a fresh healthy alternative to the countless other places out there for lunch. The food is really good and delicious. The staff are always friendly and smile. That is important when these days customer service is dying out. They always offer free samples even if you have been there several time. I recommend this place for lunch.

If you like foods such as falafel, hummus, and eggplant dip, this is the place for you. The format is similar to Chipotle Mexican, except with Mediterranean food instead. You go to the counter and they will fill your plate or pita with whatever you like. They cheerfully offer free samples of anything available, too. The prices and value are... More

This is not just a place for an occasional alternative meal, I could see going here regularly. They have a good selection of food for all tastes and moods, including beef, chicken and vegetarian. You can get it in different forms like wraps, sandwich, pita, or salad. They have a nice selection of soup as well. And try the lemon... More
