A hidden gem near Denver University, Jerusalem Restaurant is small, cozy, and often very busy with diners eating in or taking out. The service and ambiance are casual, the food is divine. The hummus, falafel, gyros, and lamb shank meals are outstanding. Whenever we travel...More

One of my favorite restaurants in Denver. It’s a small space and nothing fancy in terms of decor but the food is great. The babaganoush, dolmas, coffee, and baklava are all especially good.

Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.
