Jamil's place is the best - authentic, lively, and a fabulous array of foods. I have never had a disappointing dish there and there's so much more to sample! The place is always bustling yet comfortable and easy-going. A must-visit when you're in Chapel Hill. Stop by for a meal, a dessert, a beer or all of the above.

My family had a blast at Mediterranean Deli. There were so many amazing dishes to try and everyone loved everything they ordered. The food was tasty, the portions are large, and the staff is fast. Wonderful atmosphere, too. Check out the grocery store when you go!

I thought for sure my experience couldn't live up to the expectations of this restaurant, but boy was I wrong. I liked that it was self serve order and then they brought the food to you. It was by far the best Mediterranean food I've ever had. Whenever I visit my daughter, this will be a MUST for lunch or... More

My friends and I often had lunch at Mediterranean Deli on Franklin St. There are so many dishes to select from. Everything is delicious, fresh and healthy. Its very crowded at lunch time and street parking is a problem on Franklin St. Just get there by 11:30am, before the lunch rush hours.

This place was hoppin for obvious reasons! You order at the counter get your beverages take your number and as you wait you can fill up little cups with this olives, sauces and pickled peppers etc. Schwarma (lamb) was delicious and prices were great for all the food you get.

Loved all the amazing food choices. I had a veggie gyro but tried several things from my families meals. I typically hate taste of lamb and wow such delicious lamb kabobs here! Mediterranean Quinoa one of my favorites. Wish there was a place like this back in my home town!

We ordered the lamb gyro plate which had ample food for two adults. The food was prepared fresh and had the perfect level of spices. Although the restaurant was crowded, our wait wasn't long. We are looking forward to going back again.

Thank unccqueen
