Their menu may be short and simple but everything is good, plentiful and inexpensive. Thouroughly enjoyed the chicken platter, the humus and the gyro.

I finally got to try Yassins falafel today. I could smell it before we even got in the door. I ordered the sampler plate. This was more food than I could eat.

The lady at the cashier was not friendly. We ordered a Falafel sandwich and a Gero. Falafels were served in a cold folded wrap. The tables were not wiped down and the previous guests food remnants were still on the table.

Such good food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere are hard to find. If they have the lamb shank special, don't pass it up. Your belly and your heart will be full of goodness if you eat there.

Yassin's is quickly becoming one of my go-to restaurants in the Knoxville area. Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere and quick service makes for a great trip. Dine in or take out. You can also order for delivery online.
