Excellent Lebanese Food !!!

Came here for lunch with my family including young children. Everyone loved it I had a marinated chicken platter (I think it is called Tawook or something like that) sorry if I butchered the name, and it was delicious. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere lively !!!

Quick stop while traveling. Good, fresh food with a lot of variety. Order at the counter and be seated and they bring your order. Good choice for our lunch stop. Friendly atmosphere.

We try to eat at Mooney's each time we are traveling and pass through Winston Salem. It's the best Mediterranean food! My family always always enjoys eating the Tripoli Chicken Salad, Jezebel Wrap and a Falafel platter. It's all delicious and the people that work there are friendly. We have eaten here many times for both lunch and dinner.

I recently ate here for lunch and it was delicious. I had a burger and it was wonderful including the bun! I did not leave feeling like I had over eaten. It was a fair portion of food. A must try if you are downtown!

I always enjoy eating at Mooney's. The food is generally pretty good, but not the best Mediterranean cuisine I've had. Like today, the meat in the shwarma pita was OK, but there was so much liquid in the filling that the second half of the pita was impossible to eat. Just fell apart in a sea of liquid. My wife's...

Mooney's is a great place to get the best falafel in the city. Service is okay, not a lot of attention but when the food comes it's well worth it. Fresh hummus, pita bread and lamb also good on the menu.

This lunch dish opened my eyes to a taste that I had never had before. The Beef Shawarma Pita was AMAZING! Do yourself a favor and get one NOW! You will fall in love with this food!

This is an amazing place! I loved that everyone greeted us when we walked in the door. I felt like we have known them for forever! The food came out quick, it was soooo good! Fresh, full of flavor. This will be a favorite of mine!

I'm a big fan of Mediterranean food and these folks hit it out of the park. The food was excellent, fresh and well presented. The service good and attentive. Nothing fancy, just great food.

This restaurant used to be a bimonthly must 'go-to' place - I loved and craved the falafal, the roasted cauliflower and the baklava. But, in the last six months of so, everytime I have been there, I have been disappointed in the food. The flavors are not as strong and the food does not seems as fresh. It is very... More
