Falafel, Etc is located in a sort of cute, sort'a kitschy strip mall off Fremont Blvd. Some major construction happening next to it so hard to tell if the relaxing outdoor area will be back on-line or not. It's closed for now. Service is super friendly. Place is immaculate. Owned and run by genuine middle eastern folks. My wife has... More

I was close to getting a franchise burger but discovered Falafel Etc on TA. So happy, authentic middle eastern. Quiet area, not overcrowded, really flexible with the menu. I will be here during my next trip...

I stopped with a business associate late one night around 7:30pm to find this restaurant putting out great fresh food. I had the falafel and it was fresh and tasty. The pita and tabbouleh also tasted homemade. My associate had the lamb shawarma, and he loved it! The service was friendly and quick. I would definitely recommend this place for... More

We returned for lunch to Falafel, Inc. There is a major construction project going on in Fremont, so their patio with fountain area was no longer available. As such, we sat inside. They have a very pretty mural on the wall. We enjoyed our lunch. My husband had a falafel platter and I had a falafel sandwich. We had soft... More

I came here again about a year after my first visit (during which I ordered the falafel sandwich) and ordered the lamb shawarma plate (buy one get one 50% off!). There was lamb, salad, hummus, and pita bread. The pita bread was the same as I last came; could definitely be fluffier and chewier. The lamb was good but not... More

This is a very typical mediterranean restaurant, although well appointed, clean and welcoming. The service is friendly and fast, and the food is very good, IT has the usual suspects on the menu: Shwarma, Falafel, hummus, etc. The quality is good and the price is reasonable. portions are large with lots of extras.

The seating... More

Almost hidden from view, Falafel Etc is an excellent place for a delicious, inexpensive meal. We loved the hummus and the schwarma. Friendly people.

I highly recommend this place, it's very family friendly and its delicious! My kids devour the hummus from this place. Also, their falafels are fresh and tasty! I'm a big lamb addict, so lamb shawarma is a big deal to me and I always order it. They also have kabobs which I also like a lot, specially like kafta kabob... More
