This is my favorite place to dine in Winston. I love the friendly atmosphere and the traditional Lebanese food is to die for. The falafel, the hummus, the tawook - it's all fantastic. Recommended without reservation!!!

I love Mediterranean cuisine, and had high expectations. I am a bit of a food snob, so maybe my opinion is not the best, but I found the taste to be average. As well, I wish that there was ethnic music playing.

In downtown Winston on a Saturday noon a lot of places are closed; this was a freak find for us. We have eaten Lebanese diaspora food from Kuwait through London and Montreal to the US south, and this is about the best value for money. Mezze outstanding. Moussaka (eggplant, chick pea soupy version) great. Nice coffee in insulated pression pots.... More

We love Mooney's! In spite of that, we only get there a few times a year, but we are never disappointed. We brought friends with us on our latest visit and truly enjoyed good company, great food, and a table by the street. As usual, I ordered the sampler platter of Fetoosh (salad), fried cauliflower (the best anywhere, ever), couscous,... More

Being Vegan its always tough to visit new places. It was great to find this restraint with amazing vegan options in a sea of southern style meat only ventures.

We love authentic Lebanese/Mediterranean and this was the real deal. Baba ghanouj was perfect, tabouli was fresh and tasty, falafels were amazing.

Went here for lunch with my visiting cousins from Minneapolis. Tabbouleh was okay, but what they are calling Shwarma is a farce. Chunks of meat instead of thin slices, and not seasoned well. My vegetarian cousins were okay with what they ordered, but they did mention that they could find far better Lebanese or Middle Eastern food in the Twin... More
