For some reason when I think "Mediterranean" I assume Greek food, but Mooney's was definitely more Middle Eastern. And it was delicious - the hummus was perfect; I tried the shawarma over hummus, but tasted the lamb burger and the jezebel wrap, and those were both good too. We ended with baklava, always a treat! I'll definitely be back.

Went for lunch and wound up meeting friends there. It's within walking distance of the courthouse and many of the new developments on the eastern side of downtown Winston-Salem. They offer a nice variety of Mediterranean fair made with the best ingredients locally available including grass fed pasture raised Beef

We enjoyed our meals however we had hoped for a Greek meal only to find out the most they do is add a Greek touch to a meal that is Lebanese. Over all the experience was good, our waiter was very nice.

Great lunch. Everything on the menu looked great. Everything that everyone else ordered made me question my lunch choice even though it was great. Clean food, friendly staff and clean restaurant. If in in the area this is where I will alway come back to.

As vegetarians, we look for places that have more than three things we can eat on the menu. Mooney's has a menu full of options for us, vegans and meat eaters. The beer and wine lists are excellent. The vinho verde with the lentil stew is my goto meal many nights. My husband likes the make your own platter option.... More

Mooney and his team throw down some fantastic hand made food. It's sourced locally, organically, and treated with pride and respect for the craft. The counter staff are friendly and helpful offering new ideas with each visit. It's got a decent interior but sit outside if the weather is right to enjoy the passersby! This is my go to lunch...
