Reviewed February 25, 2008

Mmm, Hummus!: This is a place that puts many other "fast food" restaurants to shame. Normally located in food courts in shopping malls, this Hovan is in a mini strip mall in funky 5 Points, in the heart of Riverside.

It opens at 10:00 a.m., but the hot food isn't ready until the lunch rush starts at 11:00 a.m. I cannot complain about that, because it's worth it!

Everything is fresh, from the wrap sandwiches, to the salads, hummus, falafels, etc. They have vegetarian offerings, and of course, BAKLAVA!

Everyone who works there has a smile on their face and make you feel like you are the only customer.

The atmosphere is charming - lovely murals, blue glass, and other carefully chosen decor makes you feel like you've just stepped into a Mediterranean isle cafe.

The prices are not as cheap as a burger joint, but then you are getting better quality food in return. Definitely worth it.
