I was hanging out for a falafel and had a short list of places but made the decision to walk to this one... And I am so glad I did! Really very good falafel and amazing chips! (Or french fries as they call them here.) Great service, nice cold drinks, affordable and a great setting for small and big groups.... More

This is a nice Mediterranean place, but nothing out of the world. Service - the staff was not super friendly or didn't try to explain the menu or anything despite the fact that we were there for the first time. The tip options are like 15-25% on their Ipad register but they don't even bring the food, water to your... More

Tom's Tabooley has of course an interesting choice of modestly priced middle eastern cuisine. Order at counter. Food is delivered to table. Dining in small cafe area. Entertainment in what can be described as an giant living room with a small stage. Intimate venue. Strip center. Parking.

My son, my daughter, her roomate, (all three are UT students; my son is graduating in MAY2010; daughter/roomate are 1st year), my wife, and I entered this exceptionally fine inconspicuous establishment about an hour before it close. The meals were well-prepared and naturally nutritious. Tom, the owner, told me about the ongoing success despite being in a highly competitive environment,... More

If I don't die at Mag's, I want to have a Tom's Thai Falafel in my hand.

cheap Mediterranean food near campus. I think the cook smokes though because sometimes the food reaches critical mass on the salt.
