Wanting to find something other than fast food, we pulled of CA 58 in Tehachapi and found Petra's. We both got an order of hummus with pita and tabbouleh. The tabbouleh was delicious actually being more of a parsley salad rather than a grain salad. The hummus was very creamy and very garlicky. I think the only less than stellar... More

Petra's is very casual, but don't let that fool you. The food is absolutely first class. I love the shawarma plate and my wife love the chicken pesto wraps. The garlic fries are addicting and the Turkish coffee is second to none. Dinner is not cheap as chain burger joints, but still very reasonable.

The choice of mediterranean dishes vary quite a bit, and the garlic fries are outstanding. It's a cafe atmosphere, not fancy at all. Usually quite busy.

My wife and I went to this restaurant and enjoyed everything we had to eat. From there hors d'oeuvres, to the wonderful Greek euro we had. I love that tziki sauce. Service was excellent, food was even better, I highly recommend it in the small town. One of our best places to eat. Healthy, clean, and fast service.

Stopped on my way back from the Super Bloom at Carrizo Plain National monument. Got the Veggie wrap with eggplant, bell peppers and mushrooms. The sauce was great, plenty of garlic too. I'm going to stop again next time I drive through. It's also a great place for Pacific Crest Trail thru hikers. Outside seating and inside has small tables.... More

Petra, owned by by the same couple that own Perfetto across the street, shares that restaurant's commitment to high quality, freshly prepared food. Everything is good. The meatball sandwiches are the best ever.

Trip Advisor (and my sister) guided us to Petra. We chose kabobs, dolmas, spanikopita and Greek salad. All choices were excellent. Small embellishments and super fresh ingredients made the difference. Busy cooks and a proprietor who seemed intently caring and visited with many regulars provided friendly ambience. It is not fancy, rather a spare operation, but the food is well... More

This place is very popular among the locals and for good reason. Food is very good. Inside and outside dining options. This place is not fancy but the food is delicious. The kabobs are my personal favorite.

This place is great. They have the best garlic fries that are covered with fresh garlic and taste awesome.My other favorite food there is the lamb shwarma.
