I entered the place and it was pretty dirty and nothing special. You can barely see the guy at the cash register. I heard the Gyro plate was good. I ordered it with double meat for only an extra $2.95, which is a bargain. The...More

The food is absolutely wonderful! They have some of the best wings in town. I recommend the gyros or if you want a little bit of everything try the sampler plate!

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The gyro was delicious. The hummus tasted great, but was a little thin. There was no one else in the restaurant when we were there, and we received our order in a reasonable amount of time. The...More

If you are going to take a girl out on a date, this isn't the place for you. If you and some buddies want really good gyros and smoke some hookah, this is your place. Food is always excellent, hookah is always fantastic, and though...More

Insomnia Café is not swanky. No valet parking or wine lists. What it is, is GOOD. Freshly-brewed tea with mint. Marinated, tender pieces of chicken in the gyros, house-recipe sauces that are delicious, steak tips that put a steakhouse to shame and you can even...More

Sketchy is my thang! But this place looks super-sketch. The food, though. Hot, fresh, tasty. You might see weird-ish stuff happening and think it's some kind of shady deal, but it is not. That'd be a guy ordering a hookah. Hookah-smoking takes place outside, and...More

This is a small restaurant in a little strip mall but if you like Middle Eastern food, you'll really enjoy it. They also have a good selection of traditional American fare as well.

The food here is good. We always seem to catch ourselves going back to Insomnia over and over. The prices are reasonable for the most part and everything is cooked fresh to order always. The pitas/gyros are my favorite. The place doesn't always look the...More
