Great takeout!

I ordered the salmon rice plate and found it to be delicious! Their yogurt sauce was amazing. Sadly, my pita was dry, but other than that, I was very happy. I ordered take out and they were ready as soon as I entered the door.

Meat in a Box does a good job with the grilled beef and the chicken, I was less impressed with the salad. Hummus can be a personal taste, for me this is too watery and thin, but that may be a regional style. The falafel however, were rock hard and over-cooked, similar to eating a ball of sand. So, go...

It's been in Falls Church a while but I've never tried it ( not sure about the name!) So, today, thought I would stop in for lunch. Met with great service , a cup of tea ( that wasn't part if my order, and no charge) and a delicious Shish Kebab over salad. Would recommend if you are looking for... More

Love the freshly made food, every bite is delicious, free parking, easy to find, great menu, my favorites are salmon dishes and salads, love the rose water tea and the hummus is excellent. We would eat here every day, love it so much

Had hummus for a starter; good but not great. Had chicken wrap with fries, my wife had beef and rice. Mine was okay, hers was pretty good. Was underimpressed, but I'll try again. Will probably not have the chicken again - dry and with little flavor.

Cons: plastic dishware. If you are looking for simple food and fast service, this restaurant could be a good option. We had the lamb skewer, a combo of chicken and beef and falafel. The lamb meat was very hard. I would expect something tender and more tasty. The combo of chicken and beef was very good. The falafel was also... More

Was brought here by my brother who had raved about it so had to see what the fuss was all about. I had the beef with meaty mustard sauce and a side of Mac and cheese. The beef was juicy and melted in my mouth, the sauce was delicious and really complimented the meet, the bap it came in was... More

The staff at Meat in a Box is very helpful and nice. The food is nice as well, but not great. We ate here the other night and had the lamb kebab, and beef/chicken combo, with some extra vegetables. First, the extra vegetables, at $2 were not worth it. They were unseasoned and had some char on them. The beef... More

Excellent kabobs and sandwiches with superb pricing and service. Don't pass this gem up! Our favorite kabobs in the city. Great food for kids.

We read good things about this little hole-in-a-recently-refaced-strip-center in Falls Church...no one we knew personally had mentioned it but we decided to give it a try a couple days ago for dinner. All meals do come in a box though there are a few tables for eat-in. The staff was very friendly and it is clean, etc. I ordered the... More
