Great food! I ate here twice during my visit to Tehachapi and I was impressed with the portions, quality and staff. Friendly, family- owned restaurant, who put a lot of love into their dishes. Highly recommend. Try the garlic fries!

A group of us went there for dinner. The food was rally fresh and well prepared. We all had something different and there were no complaints. The Hummus is really good. The family that runs it are very nice too.

The extremely casual, non-pretentious atmosphere of Petra is reminiscent of everyday restaurants around the western shores of the Mediterranean. Guests order at the front counter. Food is prepared by clearly hard-working staff in the open kitchen behind that counter and in plain sight of guests, and delivered to your table when ready. The interior is pretty small with, maybe, 10... More

I came through Tehachapi on my thru hike of the PCT. I seek out ethnic food whenever I can. This place was wonderful from the excellently flavored food to the generous owners who upon asking, gave us a sizable discount as a PCT hiker. It's a authentic family run operation. You can't go wrong! Highly recommend!

We get the chicken and beef kabobs with salad, pita, and hummus. It is very yummy...the family who runs its are very nice. The only reason I took one star off is that the restaurant's atmosphere is not very good. Other than that the food is great.

This is the best food place in town! Anything you order is great. Love the Schawma, and falafals and the salads. Family dinning, with something on the menu for everyone.

I live in Tehachapi so I frequent Petra's often. If you love Greek food and the works you will find it here. The swarhma is the best! Wonderful family from Lebanon owns this small but incredible restaurant. You can watch them cook - don't be fooled and leave because it's a little small. Go eat in the back dining room.... More

The garlic fries are DA BOMB! We also love the lamb schwarma (or gyro) in the pita. We love the outdoor seating and the downtown location. The prices are fantastic. We eat here regularly and have never been disappointed. But we do bring gum to chew afterward.
