I happen to know a little about the family that has owned this place for years, since their children attended the school where I taught, and I can't say enough good things about them. Their level of friendly courtesy is exemplary, and reveals the care...More

Tangiers offers premade items, to go items and groceries. I always take out of town guests to this fun spot, as I feel it is a most special place on the West Hartford/Hartford line!

I just moved to the area recently and came here for my lunch break. The Falafel was incredible. We also got the chicken gyro and stuffed vegetarian grape leaves (also so so good.) Excellent, friendly service. Clean as a whistle. And shockingly low prices for...More

The Falafel can't be beat. I always grab a container of hummus and some pita bread on the way out. The hummus is out of this world. Great mixed with a little ajvar. The guys that run the place are some of the nicest people...More
