This is a must stop for us when in San Jose. Love the Falafel and the hummus is outstanding. Banana shake is beyond thunderdome.

I would have given 5 stars, but didn't take credit card. Took a client there and had to pay out of pocket instead of using my company card. It's 2016 and time to catch up.

Been a regular. Consistently good falafel. I like their falafel chips and Banana milk shake too. Only challenge is the crowd, lack of parking and waiting lines!

This place is one of my favorite quick-eats in San Jose. The falafel is fantastic...crunchy and full of flavor. I like the falafel salad--you get a ton of falafel compared to the wrap itself. I got the shake once and it was fine...but not my favorite. Parking can be problematic and there can be long lines, but it's worth the... More

Falafel Drive In is a staple for us. Even when the lines are long, they get the food out quickly. Our favorite is the falafel salad. Simple and delicious.

Best Romantic Sunday brunch. Our family has been enjoying this wonderful restaurant for over 20 years. We love the salmon, chicken and elk specials. All meals served with an outstanding sauce to compliment the meal. Every dish is fresh. It is a must to order the soufflé.
