“A true gem”

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

I had heard about this restaurant but only recently experienced it myself. So far, I have only had a couple of the menu items because they are so good that I have not yet explored further. I am excited about trying all of the other options (the pizza looks great), but the hummus and falafel sandwiches are heavenly...especially with the addictive hot sauces that are provided in an unlimited supply.

The food alone justifies a great review but the staff at Petra are also top notch. It has a nice neighborhood feel with personal and friendly service.

This is the kind of place where once it is personally discovered, one wishes it would have been sooner. Now I look forward to a weekly visit.

I walked into Petra (adjacent to Jaffa) and was not disappointed.
The food is hot, quick, fresh, and tasty.
The price is great, I spent less than $10 for a Gyro, fries, and a drink.
The soda fountain is FREE 4-6 (the established Happy hour) and bar drinks are on sale during this time as well.
The staff went out of their way to check with the patrons, offer free (hot/fresh) pita samples, and take care of our needs.
I was very impressed with their effort, especially since the food was so inexpensive.
If you want a quick/cheap lunch, this place is for you. If you want a simple Greek dinner for a great price, this answers the bill.
I will return and suggest this place to anyone that is interested in this style of food.

which is next door to the Jaffe Cafe...new, clean, friendly, and WOW is the food great here. The Real McCoy of Greek/Middle Eastern food. The pita could not be better. We had the lamb sandwich - little 1/2" lamb kabob pieces, grilled to perfection and put in a pita with the usual things. A side board of sauces adds a really great touch - try the lemon/garlic sauce. Delish. The help saw how much we enjoyed the food and gave us little containers of rice pudding to take along on the road. We NEVER would have found this place without Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Thanks for being there and being accurate.
