We had never eaten Middle Eastern food before but we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! We had 2 Kings specials, lamb and chicken. We were impressed!

The food is the real deal. The menu is simple and straightforward with these fellows doing what they do best--genuine falafels, hummus, babaganoush, grape leaves, rice, pita, and chicken. They don't mess with french fries or other junk. They keep to the mission! You get a ton of food for a low price, and it's worth every bite. Grab some... More

Hassan, the owner of Falafel King is the nicest, most honest man. He has a home made product that is off the hook. His hummus and falafel are the best in the city. Everything is freshly made. His chicken and lamb are tender and delicious folded in the freshest pita bread.Ii stop in some times just to get hummus and... More

I was looking for a quick meal and came upon this place. Food was excellent (falafel) and quick! Everything was fresh, food preparation stations were clean. Simple storefront, so dont expect this to check the box if you are looking for romance. If you like Mediterranean food, dont miss this!

The immigrant experience creates some wonderful food opportunities for Americans. This is one. Fresh, clean (the food is prepared right in front of you), authentic, reasonable, and served with a smile ... how can you not give this place five stars? The veggie combo at $6.99 features parsley salad, hummus, baba ganoush, Greek salad with feta, pita bread, two stuffed... More

I've been to the Boston Falafel Kings on Winter Street and the one on Washington Street. As well as the push cart they operate at Downtown Crossing in Boston. I have NEVER had a bad sandwich or meal from these guys. I say these guys as i believe two brothers own all of the locations. You are always greeted with... More

This has to be the source of the best falafel in Massachusetts!!! Had the falafel sandwich with hoummous and everything was amazingly fresh. Falafel was crispy-delicious but somehow still moist and the salads combined perfectly. The place looks unassuming on the outside but, for really great falafel, definitely worth going inside!

I've eating lunch here a couple of times and was impressed both times. It's a small place,better suited for takeout than sitting down. I recently had the chicken shish-kabob and it was awesome. The rice was fantastic and the salad was really fresh. A lot of good food for a very reasonable price. The line gets long around lunch so... More

If you want really good food and are not concerned with the atmosphere Falafel King can't be beat. Both my husband and I had the lamb kabob plate, which included a falafel salad with a delicious tahini dressing, a very well-prepared rice and the grilled lamb. Wow. We were traveling through Boston to the South Shore and needed to plan... More
