“Keep eating here!!!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

I've tried haddads befor but not the one downtown. Here the atmosphere is much open and relaxing and better! The owners r very nice. The food is great too, I tried the shawarma and it was great and the kibbeh side was great. The hummus is great! It doesn't just feel like a restaurant but more like a cafe where u can sit eat and relax! If only they were open on weekends other than that come n try haddads!

“Downtown Location Needs Some Work”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

This location has been open approximately six months and is "in progress." Menu is a little difficult to understand, wait staff needs a hard look at and the atmosphere remains a little rough around the edges. Owner and wife are solid and many of menu items are top draw including baklava. I had three so-so cabbage rolls and a good chicken gyro. This family has a solid, good reputation in area with multiple pushcarts and another location managed by original Mom & Pop who came over from Lebanon. This downtown location will be in a prime area once new downtown Marriott opens 2/2013. They have until then to get it all together.

“Lebanese Green Beans, I am still dreaming about them”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

I love Lebanese food especially really good food and this is the best!
You can't go wrong with the gyros and fries but I love the hummus and falafels. I also never tried sweet potato fries until now, Yum!
Plenty on your plate to share or take home later and very convenient to downtown Peoria and week day activities!
