Great salad, even for a non-salad fan! There are crowds and long lines all the time, so you know it is VERY delicious!!

I've tried falafels all over the country and have been going to Falafel Drive-In for many, many years. No other falafel matches theirs - and it has remained consistently delicious from the very first time I had one as a child. And the banana milkshakes are amazing! Do not fear the line of people - it moves very quickly. Great value, great food, great service!

I love this place! I’m here on the regular for a banana shake and I don’t even like bananas. Everything is super fresh, delicious and comes out quickly. This is a hole in the wall and is a San Jose institution.

Ordered their Falafel with red tangy sauce is great. Their banana milkshake is a great complement to the Falafel. Lunches are pretty busy but walk up service is relatively quick. They have been around around forever and an institution in San Jose

Like this place. Food is good and good service. I honestly think they use to be better but still for the price you pay you get good food.
My favorite is their falafel sandwich.
Humes is ok because it’s blunt.
