We were walking down Carson street wondering if there were any alternatives to another burger.. when a passerby suggested Kassab's - that was just the beginning of our good fortune this evening. Our waitress made wonderful recommendations and went to extra effort to make us welcome. The food was delicious - especially the eggplant hummus! Fresh and light. Much better... More

We have gone to a number of middle east restaurants over the years and most of them have been decent but few of them have we wanted to return to. However, Kassab's is one we return to. And whenever we talk about which restaurant to go to and Kassab's is on the list, both my wife and I say 'YES'... More

We decided to check out this place based on the reviews here. It was worth it. The sandwiches are huge, the prices are good, and the service is friendly. I had a falafel sandwiches "Lebanese style, " which meant it came with pepperoncini and pickled turnips. If you go, get those turnips. They are amazing.

Having a grandmother who I boast as THE BEST Middle Eastern cook around (and I will just add best cook in general), it is difficult for me to give credit to a lot of Middle Eastern restaurants. However, Kassab's is the best in town that I've ever had. Their rice pilaf tastes just like my Sito's. I became a vegetarian... More

This place has the best hummus I have tasted in Pittsburgh (and perhaps anywhere) Being vegetarian, I usually must turn to the hummus on the menu, so I've tasted many! The service is very friendly, the atmosphere comfortable and pleasant. The other dishes are delicious as well.

We were just at Kassab's with another couple. We had no reservation, and this is not a very big place, but were lucky and were seated right away. We did know in advance that they are a BYOB place with no wine/beer/liquor sales, so we had our own bottles. Quite pleased to find no corkage fee, so we left a... More

We have been to Kassab's multiple times...have taken our families and friends there, have sat down, done take out. Kassab's is great- big portions, prices are extremely reasonable, you can BYOB. It's family-friendly, but the atmosphere is still good for couples. We have seen three generations at a table, single diner, double dates...whatever you are, you're welcome! Their decor is... More

Unbelievably inexpensive and delicious Middle Eastern food in a lovely dining room. A peaceful oasis on the rowdy South Side. Get the mazza platter to sample their amazing hummus and tabbouleh.
