After reading all the great reviews we had to try it.Was not disappointed.We waited in a long line but worth the wait.Service was friendly and quick once we got to the window.Good food! All ingredients seemed very fresh.The one thing was that the Falafel fell apart and we needed forks to finish it.Good price and we will be back

Food is fresh and tasty. Atmosphere is ... a parking lot and a small cramped interior seating spot. banana milkshakes are very good.

Best Falafel and Shwarma. If you are a local, you already know about this place. Don't be put off by the long line; it goes fast. If you've never had falafel or other Middle-eastern foods, then this is the place to try it out. The best.

Finally, a restaurant that lives up to the hype. I frequent this place quite often, and from the quick moving lines, so do many others. While I usually get the special (falafel and a banana shake, I force myself to be adventurous once in a while, and am rarely disappointed. The only thing I tried that I didn't care for were the dolmas. Otherwise-- go for it!

Saw this place on DDD and made it a point to stop by while in San Jose last week. Tried both the falafel and the gyro and both were great! In terms of the gyro, this is the best I have had! I was spoiled in college living a few blocks from Chicago's greektown...but this drive in is far better than anything. Have had in the past. This is a must stop at if you're in the area, and well worth the drive if you are anywhere close!
