“great place for a meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

we were trying to get a table at another restaurant, when we saw Bill Smith (crooks corner) get a table and eat. I like the food, but for Bill Smith to go there, it says a lot.l

“Three times in three weeks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Fortunate enough to be traveling through Chapel Hill three weeks in a row for dinner at this incredible restaurant. The Fatayers are incredible!! Just like Yia Ya's Cretan dishes.

“Amazing, delicious experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Top of taste greek and Mediterranean everything! When you walk in and approach the food counter, every selection looks so appetizing, it is very difficult to make your decision. Our first visit, I had a salad selection, of my choice. The next day, I tried on their chicken Lebanese pita combinations. The pitas are baked in a brick oven inside the restaurant. You can also purchase them packaged, to go. The greek pastries are also in-house baked. They even offer fresh Halvah! There are many salads , both green or with beans and grains. Kabobs, chicken. delicious cabbage stuffed with meat and rice and additional hot entrees. They offer the usual hummus, tabouli, greek salads and the unusual, as well. There was an avocado and tomato salad and a cheese and spinach spread that was outstanding.

Unknown to us on our first visit, is the help yourself condiment bar. There are small individual cups for self service and you just help yourself. There are several kinds of olives, greek salad dressing, pickled vegetables, sauces, both spicy and mild that add well to your food selections and spices. A very generous add-on to what you are eating.

We have no negatives to report. We went 2 times during our weekend visit. We ate inside 1 time and outside the next. Fortunately, I had a ice chest and brought some home to enjoy. The food moves so quickly and is so fresh.

Outstanding, just outstanding!!

“Fresh great food and a vibrant ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

For a change, here's a restaurant with a whole bunch of choices for vegtarians! And the price is to die for... very fresh and lovely mediterranean food at very reasonably rate. The setting is informal and the crowd is bustling... just the type of restaurant where you can just hang out and have some good grub with the fam. :-)

“Not that impressed.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Mediterranean Deli is a very popular restaurant in Chapel Hill. It is a deli where you select items from the food cases and they deliver them to your table.

We ordered a sampler of their gyros and chicken as well as a selection of vegetarian sides. The gyros and chicken were quite good. The hummus and tabouli were OK. They didn't taste very fresh to us. The vegetarian sides were also OK. Perhaps because we have a large middle-eastern population in Michigan, we weren't that impressed.
