I've tried two other items on their menu, which I thought were just about average, but the Sabich was a definite standout. Poppin with Mediterranean flavors, that will satisfy both your tongue and your stomach. I could eat this 24/7, but sadly they don't start serving until noon (as of now ;)

One of my best choices over the weekend .. was going here!! Not sure what to pick for a first timer, we chose 2 dishes one with the stuffing in the pita bread and one w\o. The dishes are made fresh in front of you. If you need it spicy just mention it and they would add more spice to your dish. The wait was a little bit long about 15 mins since there was a crowd. No wonder its a famous place. The pita bread is made fresh there. Really really good. We got a sample of the falafel hot and so crispy with the garbanzo dip! delicious.

Its a great place to have some healthy stuff! Inexpensive and worth it.

The owner was in front of us and he gave an order and paid for it. I thought that was a good gesture!!
There were just 2 servers making the order ( maybe because it was an hour to closing ). Not sure if there are more during the day.

Seating is outside of the restaurant which has now heaters and a covered space for winter. You can either eat there or take out. Will definitely visit again and try other dishes on the menu.

This is a great healthy and tasty fast food alternative. The pita bread is baked right there and the falafels are delicious. Great for a take away or sit at the outside tables and eat right there.
Absolutely delicious.

Okay; you have discovered the best falafels in the immediate area. The Falafel Stop bakes their own pita bread every day and the falafels are excellent. If you are traveling and looking for a falafel or really good salad this is the place.

Get your falafel on here and skip the triple D recommendation in San Jose. Those are good; but, they use store bought pita bread that falls apart with your first bite. That will not happen to you at the Falafel Stop as they hold together very well and taste is excellent. Just good food.

Love this place. The falafel is great. The falafel garbanzo balls are lightly fried and flavorful. They taste fresh and exciting. So much better than other places. The pita bread also seems fresh and with the right moistness. The tahini sauce is excellent. It's great to have a lunch that's flavorful, healthy, inexpensive and fast.

I also tried their other main dish, the sabich, which is made of cooked eggplant, boiled egg, hummus, tahini and a few other goodies. It's also really good.

This isn't a fancy place. It's more like a road stand. You order inside and the seating is outdoors on picnic tables with a big shade cover. It can get a little messy as the pita is very stuffed, but it's worth it. Everyone is very friendly and it's become part of our weekly lunch rotation.
