I was leery at first when we walked into a jam packed tiny restaurant on Pearl Street in Boulder. Order at the counter, pay and they deliver it to your table, best gyro ever with wonderful sides and daily specials. The meat,beef, lamb and chicken was so fresh. Yummy and very popular!

Good quick Falafel salad with sides, but nothing exceptional. If you are in Pearl street mall area and didn't want to do a sit down lunch than this might be an option for you.

Falafel was great and tasted good, however, gyro was not that excellent. Despite the price for "special" menu you dont receive a pita full of meat!!!

A great stop on Pearl especially when falafel is hard to find out in the hinterland where I live. Its made fresh & pretty much to order. The staff were friendly and helpful. Can't make up your mind? I had the "Jerusalem Platter" which included falafel, pita, lamb, beef and grilled vegetables. Casual & affordable.

Yummy food in a great location, what more could you ask for? I had the gyro, it was very fresh. It was pretty slow, but it was really busy that day.

It's inexpensive and very high quality. Lots of choices. We got to speak with the owner, who told us about how he sources things like his Turkish coffee from a local producer overseas. Terrific food, better service, great prices. Seating indoors and outdoors.

This is a staple on Pearl. I have been going for 20+ years. I can always count on cheap and fast food if I want a bite to go. Food is consistent with quality.

I'm no expert but I've have quiet a bit of Mediterranean food. This place is very good! We ate here yesterday while in Boulder and it was excellent! I enjoyed the falafel & hummus sandwich. While my family throughly enjoyed the gyros. It tastes healthy and doesn't weigh you down. Great for lunch!

Looking for a filling, fairly inexpensive, and quick lunch on the Pearl Street Mall, check out this local favorite. Order at the counter, watch the staff assemble your food, and head off to the crowded, but cheerful dining area. The food was well prepared, plentiful, and lots of choices.

Thank kls925
