“I hope Maoz will put McDonalds out of business!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

It's not even a question of vegetarian vs non-vegetarian, or the style of cuisine. It's just this simple: with such fresh, healthly, wonderful food served on the fly in a minimalist but elegant and intriguing storefront, why would anyone go anywhere else when they want fast food? This should be the future of fast food dining. Except to make this point, why else would I write a review of a fast food chain restaurant? The falafel is easily the best I've ever had. Ditto for the baba ghanoush. I'm craving both as I write. The location at 40th and 7th---where I had lunch the other day---is especially memorable as a great choice in a neighborhood filled with fast food junk and tourist traps. This was the first time I have ever been to a Maoz and I will gladly seek them out wherever I go in the world from now on!

“Great Tasting, Great Value!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

A group of us, both vegetarians and not, tried Maoz as a quick, healthy lunch. Loved the food and quick service. We opted for the falafel salad combo that included fresh squeezed orange juice. The food was flavorful and fresh. The toppings bar was amazing. Interesting side items, making this a super spot for a quick lunch. There is no inside seating, but we found plenty of space on the benches outside the restaurant.

“Great food and concept”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were looking for something apart from the pizza's and burgers and came across this place. A small shop tucked away in a corner , this provides good fresh and delish food. Sandwiches with falafels and eggplants . Sauces and garnish of your choice.

My advice? Keep it simple. Do not add too many of the salsa's or toppings , it just gets too messy to eat.
