When we are visiting Chapel Hill we like to have lunch at the Mediterranean Deli because they have a wide assortment of delicious middle eastern salads, sandwiches, main dishes and desserts. Something for everyone! The atmosphere is casual and the food is good and reasonably priced.

So many choices it was hard to make up my mind. I decided on the Moroccan Chicken with Greek salad. The portions are huge. I could have feed another person on my plate. The food was wonderful, from the saffron rice to the Tzatziki everything was perfect. This was the creamiest Tzatziki I have ever eaten also. I thought the... More

We come here regularly on weekends for lunch. The food is always excellent. It can be crowded and noisey. Lots of choices.

I was traveling with a group of students and we stopped in at this deli and had a terrific lunch! Everyone from the inexperienced, fussy eater to the well traveled, vegetarian, gluten free eater was happy. Highly recommend it as a must stop in Chapel Hill!

West Franklin street has winner. Gyros to die for, many choices of salads and such by the pound and homemade baked goods. First time is not our last. The adjacent market next time to pickup spices and grains NY the pound. Yum!

BIG FAT FAN of this place. First of all, it is adequately staffed with friendly, helpful and hard working staff. They hustle behind the counter and on the floor to get you the delicious food. Lots to choose from and you see it before it hits the plate. Peruse the fresh offering of Mediterranean fare (Arabic, Greek, Turkish, etc.) and... More

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 wasn't too crowded or too loud. If you have... 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.
