I'm a vegetarian, so I can only comment on the falafel, but it is pretty yummy -- though not as good as other options in AdMo.

When I was 16, my first job was behind the counter at a sub sandwich chain. The manager said - "never skimp on the lettuce. It's cheap and makes the sandwich look full."
Such simple advice that worked well to get return customers.
Shawarma King on Columbia Road is one of the new falafel type shops around DC. Others let you stuff your own sandwich, not here. They fill it for you with whatever you want off the "fixings" bar. Unfortunately they skimp so ridiculously that my falafal sandwich tasted more like a "wish" sandwich. See Blues Brothers for the reference. Bow bow bow.
Locals who were in the store report that they never see the same staff there twice, which is probably the explanation for why there is complete confusion behind the counter resulting in delays in getting food. The good news is that the food is fresh and the price would be fair if they just added a bit more food to the plate.
