Non descript building in a not-so-thriving part of town houses a nice restaurant owner and excellent food. The Greek salad was ridiculous! Falafal sandwich excellent and Hummus to die for. Don't expect fancy. Dated decor but so worth the $.

The outside does not look like much and the eating area relatively small, but this is a quaint place to eat. The portions are large, prices reasonable, and the taste authentic.

There are also more standard options for a group member who may not have a taste for middle eastern food. This is a very small, family owned establishment. The food is cooked when you order. The Egyptian sampler plate is a great place to start if you're unsure. It has several dishes for about 2-3 people to share. Also an... More

Went to King Tut Grill for lunch. I had the Koshari, which I heard is the national dish of Egypt. Pasta, lentils, rice etc covered with a tomato sauce. Very good and filling. I can see why it would be a comfort food in Egypt. My brother got the Greek salad, which was the biggest salad I've ever seen. Bigger... More

This beautiful tiny place has amazing middle eastern food and one of the best Greek salads ever. Try the Egyptian sampler plate for a taste of everything. Owned by a lovely couple (now a widow) for decades, the food is prepared when you order.

Not a place if you are in a hurry or looking for a fancy establishment but you will get decently priced home-cooked food. It is a one-person show and I think they get a lot of local and repeat business. It's a place you come to relax and not spend a lot of money.

My family has been enjoying the food of King Tut's since the day it opened ( 1994 ). If you are looking for amazing, authentic Egyptian food, made with loving care, this is the place for you! There is an Egyptian sampler that lets you taste lots of different dishes at a reasonable price. The Falafal and homemade hummus are... More

It's tiny, it's quirky, and it may not be the neatest or cleanest place in town, but boy does this place have a fabulous Greek salad! This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. Can't wait to return to try the "Sampler". The owner is exceptionally friendly and truly aims to please.

Thank Luv-piano
