I probably drove by Garbanzo several times before I decided to eat there. They have a great set up for ordering food and plenty of options. You can get meat or Falafel as your protein and they have plenty of side options. I like to get a plate, but they offer wraps, pitas, and salads as well. This is a... More

We come here to visit every time we are in the Springs and my kids love it. I wish they would expand to KC area. Their food is so fresh and not filling even though they give you large portion sizes. I usually get their Gyro meat along with the garlic sauce. Everything that my family has eaten here is... More

I was looking or a lunch on the light side and stumbled across the Garbanzo. They try to prepare foods in a healthy manner with attention paid to fresh and natural ingredients. I had a plate with cilantro hummus, lettuce, cucumber and tomato salad, grilled chicken and rice. Light, smaller portions, and delicious. My husbands gyro was yummy. The service... More

I enjoyed the foods and the available dishes were quite nice. The concept is a mix-and-match lunch. You pick a meat or a substitute for same and side dishes and a sauce. Very nice altogether, but the day we were there, the meats were a litle dry, so it detracted a bit from the experience. The side dishes and sauces... More

I love Mediterranean food but have never stepped inside a Garbanzo. Odd really. I had a plate with the spicy red pepper hummus, gyro meat, falafel, cucumber salad, taziki sauce, feta and kalamatas. The gyro meat was a not that great but everything else was devine! I'll be back. Will just try a different protein.

This restaurant has more choices for a build your own gyro or salad than anyplace I've seen. The food is tasty and fresh. It's a fast food type of place where you pick your choices and they build your plate in front of you. We were traveling and ate here once. if there was one near home I would try... More

I've seen 29 other reviews and all are about correct. Maybe my experience was very different but I had bad experience with customer service. The photos I upload will ten you type of meals, foods, sides, extras and drinks. If I eat here again I'll be because the only closer authentic Mediterranean Food is a bit of a drive but... More

Coming from the Midwest (where things are slow to catch on), we were delighted to find this delightful Mediterranean eatery. We've been telling people it's like a Middle Eastern Chipotle, where you go through the line and select from your favorites: hummus, baba ganouj, falafel, all sorts of marinated vegetables and olives, pitas and so much more! We were in... More

We discovered them a few years ago in Boulder and stopped here for a quick lunch on our way to Manitou Springs. The only way thet I can describe this concept is if you took a Chipolte and changed the cuisine to Mediterranean foods. They;ve got it all...hummus, flafels, baba ghanoush and all the stuff we love to eat! Great... More

Lots of grilled choices of Mediterranean food quickly prepared in front of you. (The special was not available so we choose something else?!)
