Enjoyed a wonderful meal last night. Food was fantastic, however was grossed out when I had to go to the men's room. Couldn't believe the small dirty little room was unkept and not clean. I'm glad I didn't go into the kitchen....

Authentic Mediterranean restaurant in Denver. This is very similar to the restaurants I visited in Israel. So, save on airfare and visit the Jerusalem Restaurant on Evans. Good selection of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Desserts are in a display cabinet and they are also brought to your table for viewing before you make the final selection. Food is tasty...

I love middle eastern food and kind of found this place by mistake and so the wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. First we wanted to sit outside under the awning (actually a makeshift carport awning situated next to the restaurant) but the chairs were a bit uncomfortable that we decided to head inside. Next, we ordered... More

This is apparently a mainstay of the DU campus and with the late-night hours I can see why. They are open into the wee hours, have indoor and outdoor seating, and are casual - all perfect for college or law students. It is not fine dining; it is comfort food. Some of it is quite good but the food is... More

Meat combo is very good. Great service always! Love the hummus as well. We will be eating here for years to come. It has been one of our favorite places to grab lunch for 5 years now. Gyros are also very tasty. Deserts are authentic & unique. Recommend trying "birds nest" if you like pistachios.

I go every time I'm in the area. Food is delicious and service is fast and friendly. I've shared the vegetarian platter with a friend and we both felt like it was enough. I also love that they are open late!

Hummus, baba ganoush, falafel, tsaziki, etc.... This makes me drool just thinking about it. I love this place and could eat here every week. It's a great place to get a bunch of things and share them. There are too many wonderful items to have to choose just one.

Within sight of the DU campus, there's a reason Jerusalem has been around for 30+ years. Amazing Hummous - as good as the homemade Hummous my Palestinian friend makes. And entrees lived up up to the appetizers. We had a mix of Gyros and Shawarmas. Would bet it's as good at 5 PM as it is at 2 AM!

Loved the delicious hummus. We also enjoyed their beef and lamb gyros. The restaurant is open late for those wanting to grab a bite to eat after the bar. You can also order food to go. The place is small and draws a good crowd on the weekends. Parking can sometimes be an issue due to the small lot.

Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.
