Falafel Drive-In is a must for San Jose natives and visitors. I get the falafel and banana milkshake every time.

This is a funky little old drive in type place where you sit at picnic tables. It has the best falafels you'll find anywhere in No CA.

If you like falafel's you've got to stop at this drive-in restaurant. It's a typical story of a dive(in) restaurant with exceptional food. Who cares about the ambience when the food is divine!

This is a famous local spot for some of the best Falafels and Gyro in town. The banana shakes are also a favorite, But the hummus is the best I have EVER tasted. Made fresh every morning with a creamy texture (YUM!) that goes perfectly with cut up veggies or their pita chips (also a must). If you are in the area or shopping down the street from Valley Fair or Santana Row, check this place out!
