They have nice hot bread, lovely falafel, hummus and everything they serve! Great place to go. The customer turn over is high and they have open kitchen so we can see how food is prepared.

I just bought the falafel sandwich for the store on Meka street. They sell sadwitches only. They charge .75 piaster which is equal to one dollar. I had to ask him for extra falafel because he puts 3 pieces only. It's good food but in my opinion it's high price for that area !!

we are visiting Amman for three days and we had lunch twice in Abu Jbara ... this is a great example of how the food is good. If you are from the region and would like the best Humus and Falafel then this is the place in Amman

Okay, so I first visited Jordan back in September 2012, and when I landed in Amman, I was greeted by my newly extended family who were keen to start the party straight away - It was 2:30am in the morning, and in true Arabic fashion - WE ATE! Abu Jbara was the destination and since this first experience it has... More

Ok it is a spacious place perhaps the largest that specialises in this kind of food but it ridiculously overpriced. You can get the same experience for a fraction of the cost many other places

Excellent prices, several branches, reminds me of Big Boy in the US, only with falafel and Jordanian foods. It gets really crowded on weekends. Even the royal family eats there sometimes.
