Had a very good lamb sandwich in pita....messy but tasty....It has limited seating so if you are staying close by I'd suggest take out. Also, try their hot cilantro sauce......amazing on the sandwich.

These brothers used to have a great place that I went to often. That placed closed and I am happy to find them in their new location. This place is more focused and quite delicious. I highly recommend.

Everything is fresh and delicious. Great pita and platters with falafel, chicken or beef. Great selection of toppings at unbeatable prices. And the baklava are to die for. This is a family run business which makes it extra nice.

I went here to try shwarma after seeing that Avengers movie. Service was great as was the food. Build your own with great meat/protein and veggie options. Highly recommended!

Stopped here for lunch on Saturday. Delicious, homemade, fresh falafel and pita. Reasonably priced, brand new inside, and tastefully decorated. Family owned and operated by folks who were friendly and helpful in selection of menus items. Will definitely be back and recommend to others!!
