Great food, cute place

They have wide variety of savory pastries and sides that you can easily make into a filling meal. As several other reviews have mentioned, you can get a lot for your money. Also, since it's a Mediterranean place, there's plenty for the vegetarian and vegan crowd. The atmosphere was nice, it... read more

Service can be slow at times, but the food is so good, you won't mind. Since this is a place where the food is already prepared, it really should be picked up when you pay for it, rather that wait for someone to deliver it to your table.

This place is more like a cafeteria, but one with excellent choices. So much to choose from and so little capacity. They also have a good condiment bar with olives, tzadzici, and much more.

There are so many choices it is difficult to choose. This is one of the few restaurant that has its own bakery and produces all its bread items on site. All items were fresh and the portions were large. All items were delicious.

They have got a great location on Franklin Street and the food is out of this world. Especially consider trying their varieties of hummus and pita sandwiches and the Greek desserts. You can't beat it for lunch or an early dinner, and the catering is excellent as well.

Great food! Whether eating in or catered, Medi-deli always is great. We have used them to cater small parties in our home for several years. Delivery and set up in our home is always prompt and they pick up all of the serving dishes the next day. Food is great, fresh and consistent. Home made pita is a treat and... More

Med Deli is reliably excellent food. They use lots of fresh vegetables and don't overcook them. Their tzatziki sauce is abundant and tasty, and if you'd like a little more on the side, you can help yourself to that, along with various pickles and other sides. It does get crowded sometimes, and the wait for food can be a little... More

Not only is the food great with lots of wonderful fresh choices, now Jamel has added a lovely market. Always busy and a favorite among locals. If you like Mediterranean food, this is the place; if you aren't familiar with Mediterranean food you will come to love it by eating here.

The food is really delicious. Many options. If you go to Chapel Hill, take a day and have lunch or dinner there. When I went, the only problem was the service. There were so many people and its was need to wait many minutes (the employees looked a little lost).
