Quite a few items but the pizza's are particularly good. Try the chicken garlic! I don't eat carbs very often but when I do I go here! Quite a few options.

The absolute best Mediterranean food I've ever had. The peta bread is warm and freshly baked and the staff is fantastic!!

The Petra is a really nice little cafe in SLO Town where you can get some quite delicious middle eastern food. Their humus is the best around, and well, all the food here is excellent. They also have a very extensive beer selection, and TVs to watch sports. You can eat inside or outside. A well-deservedly popular place.

Simply love the food and service here. More importantly, it is pet friendly. We have consistently ordered Lamb Swaharma and Falafel plate dishes. The kids get their gyros and they are delicious and price is reasonable. This time around, we ordered the large pizza and you can choose 2 different options on your pizza. Got to try the BBQ chicken... More

We really liked this place. It was a unique combination of greek/mediterranian food with Pizza. I love the Gyro pizza for example. Crust was excellent. Nice laid back place. I would say a medium Pizza is good for 2-3 people depending on how hungry you are. Location is such as you are at the far end of downtown so you... More

I found out about the history between this place and Jaffa, and this place is just as good...love the ambience as it stays open late, and has TVs while I enjoy good Mediterranean food (Next time, will get the pizza). There's a lot of good stuff on the menu, so one visit isn't enough. Need to come back to SLO!

The Mediterranean food is nothing special, but the pizza is very good. We ordered the Gyro pizza and cheese pizza. They were delicious! The falafel plate was ok, not great.

Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, PIZZA! It's all great. Super duper spicy sauces on the side. The kabobs were the ka-bomb!! A little bit of garlic breath to help you remember your meal.

My very favorite thing on the menu is the Chicken Shawarma. The plate is served with their homemade hummus, tahini, and cucumber yogurt. There are four different sauces that you can use on your food and one of my favorites is the garlic sauce which I call "Atomic Garlic" because if you don't mind still being able to taste it... More

We ate here twice for dinner when we were in SLO. You order at the counter, and they bring the food to your table. We got the falafel plate and the veggie plate. Both had a good amount of food and were delicious. Service was good. The prices are great. This is a 'best value' type of place.
