Whether on a bike ride, lunch from work, a weekend shopping outing, or casual meeting the Falafel Drive-In satisfies. Mediterranean fare, quick service, very casual setting.

I love Falafel Drive-In. It's nostalgic, inexpensive and delicious. They have the best falafel balls anywhere. I usually get extra falafels on the side. I also like the homemade hummus. The small portion is quiet generous. Of course everyone knows about the banana milkshake. You can't come here without getting one. They are amazing. This is a great place to grab a quick lunch with anyone.

I pretty much always have the special whenever I go there. Fresh banana shake and the large falafel. Lines can be long and parking may be a challenge.

Go to the Falafel Drive-in for the falafels! I've eaten them many, many times over the past 30+ years. They are always outstanding. Unfortunately, I haven't tried much else.

Causal, quick good and lip-smacking messy. The wait is never long - so hang in there. IT IS WORTH IT
