You might describe this as a hole in the wall -- and that wouldn't be bad. The seating area is tiny, and a couple of guys were watching a World Cup game when I entered. The deli seems to be family owned, and a woman took pity on me and my red-faced children, giving me a bottle of water .... More

The owner will come out and talk to you while you eat sometimes, and the food is excellent. I love the falafel plate. There are old copies of National Geographic magazine on the walls that you can look at while you eat. Small seating area, but usually there is room. The takeout business seems to be the major part of... More

They have some of the best quality meats!! Nothing compares to the lamb on the gyros, nor the steak on the Philly cheesesteaks. A great place to grab lunch. I advise calling in if you don't like waiting you never know how busy they will be. Just can't brag enough :) great great place

Even though the deli is just a small shop run by a husband and wife, the food is delicious. It is also very reasonably priced. We were a company of five people who went there and all agreed that the food was worth the money. The ambience isn't that much as it isn't a proper restaurant but the food is... More

So disappointed. Hole in the wall is one thing, but this is way too iffy. Messy. The food took forever and wasn't fresh. Not worth the wait. Student hangout, fine. Not for us. Such a shame. Really can't figure out why people go back.

Honest food, very small deli, delicious and fresh. You don't get fancy, nor do you pay for it, but you get a very fair value.

We stopped here while vacationing in Savannah. The food was authentic and delicious -- we had a Lamb Gyro and Falafel sandwiches. The owners are nice and prepare the food themselves. Prices were good. We're glad we ventured outside the Historic District.

Lived in the middle East for 2 years & can tell you it is authentic & fresh. I love the Falafel really good. As others have said they have a wide variety of food including some American, burgers, fries etc. I stop by for lunch every couple of months or more if working in the area. Owner is a great.
