Some of the best hummus I have ever had. I could eat a whole plate! The salads are amazing and fresh. All the food is delicious and flavorful. It's a little out of the way from Nashville, but worth the drive!

Rakka makes delicious and authentic Greek cuisine. Some of the best hummus I've ever had. If Greek food is a favorite of yours, Rakka is worth a special trip.

The first thing you notice when you walk in to Cafe Rakka is the size, about 11 tables. The second thing you notice are the aromas. It reminded me of the smell of my mom's kithcen growing up. Mouth watering. There is a counter at the back where you place your order and they will bring it to your table.... More

We love Cafe Rakka...our go to meal is the Chicken on the Saj and Santa Barbara Salad. For an appetizer we always try the hummus sampler. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because the inconsistency of service and speed of service. If they were consistent I would definitely give them a 5. Insider tip...you order at... More

Food was fresh and delicious. I had the vegetarian plate and my husband had the lamb and we ended up sharing because both dishes were stupendous. You won't regret the drive to this wonderful restaurant.

As you drive up to this restaurant, you might have some second thoughts. It's not located in the nicest part of town. I will say that I enjoy visiting Guns and Leather which is just around the corner though. The outside of the building is nothing special to look at and the interior lacks any special appeal.

Quaint little place, excellent food. Gyros, both chicken and lamb were very good. Tabouleh was the only down side, just a little too oily.

Great Hummus and a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes. Very good Arabic dishes - Lamb, beef, chicken and seafood. Great bread, Tabbouleh, hummus, etc. Very casual and unassuming. Not cheap but heaping portions. Lunch about 25 per person.
