Always great food here. Fresh and fast. Even though there might be a line and no parking, the cooks and staff always get the food out quick. Highly recommended!

Wanted to get together with some friends but couldn’t get out of the house so they stopped and picked up falafel’s from this great place. Been coming here and eating falafel‘s since i worked at the hospital in 1972.

I had the humus platter and it was very good - so big that I couldn't finish it! My husband had the falafel sandwich and really enjoyed it! Very popular place that has been around for a very long time.

My husband has been eating here since the 60’s! I don’t know what they put in their falafel sauce, but we have never found any others that even come close! We love to have a banana shake with our falafels.
