I came here to get something quick to take back to my hotel after work. I got the kafta pita and a small baba ganoush. It was about $10 and really tasty. When I walked in, the girl at the counter seemed bored, but piped up after I told her it was my first time. She was very nice after... More

I didn't get to enjoy anything. My first time visiting. Came in at 2:54 right before closing mind you the doors are not yet locked. I'm not sure what I want so I study the menu and when I'm ready to order 3 workers walked right past me without saying a word. Finally a lady says "um. We closed at... More

I love going to Mooney's for lunch especially for the excellent falafel and hummus. I never seem to get a warm reception from the staff even when asking questions about their authentic menu. After ordering at the counter, food tends to take a while to come out. My advice is to avoid the noon lunch rush and do your research... More

If you're anywhere near Winston Salem give this place a try! I went with a friend who raved about it and it was everything I expected and more. The Jezabel is a great entree and the hummus complimented it nicely as a side! I promise you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I came here and we each ordered the appetizer plate-choice of 4- we ordered 8 out of the 9 items. it was really great and enough to fill us up. We arrived when it opened and ordered at the counter and it was brought out to us. $9/plate and then our beverages. I would recommend it!

Mooney's has a delicious menu, full of well-prepared Mediterranean food. I always request the gyro with chicken and cheese and the ingredients are always super fresh. My husband has declared their kafta burger one of the best burgers he's ever had. The restaurant is small and as others have noted, the service can be a bit slow if you go... More

Have only tasted mediterranean few times before, and this was as authentic as I can recall. The service is ok, the place small, but the food makes it for all, so fresh ad tasty. Vegan friendly and organic. Recommendation: order any appetizer

Had dinner there with my family last night. Good downtown location, simple interior and good friendly service. I thought it was a bit pricey compared to other mediterranian restaurants in the area, but the food was fresh and locally sourced. The kafta lamb/beef burger with feta was quite good, as was the baba ganoush. We will be going back.

The food is really quite tasty, and the prices are fair for a downtown establishment. The service is friendly, but Good Lord, is it slow! Most recenly, I waited 40 minutes for a pita. While that was excessive, it's normal to wait 20 or more minutes for your food--not conducive to getting back from lunch on time.
