This is our go-to, starving for warm delicious food spot. I'm not a fan of buffets, but this place has it down. The falafel, tabouleh, vegetarian stuffed cabbage (not always available), dolmas, pea/lentil soup. It's always delicious. We have come here several times when we...More

Large middle eastern buffet, so many choices, all good. Particularly enjoyed the gyro and what they called barbecue. In addition, the dessert pudding was some of the best I've had. Topped off with a wonderful staff. This was a great experience.

Great greek and middle eastern fare with the wallet impact of a cafeteria. El Lobo tip: Come after sunset during Ramadan for a culinary feast under the big tent in the parking lot!

When in ne, go here when you need your lamb meat dreams fulfilled. Great service and a staple of the community. Hard to get in and out of parking lot- busy intersection

We came for dinner. It was fast and nicely done. Upton is a little shy on inexpensive places to eat and this is a good one. The food is good, the service is friendly and it is very good value indeed.

Lunch here is some of the best food in uptown. Had the falafel sandwich (with hummus instead of cuke sauce) and tabouli salad. Fresh, tasty, cooked in front of me, and I would expect this place to be more crowed each time I go back,...More
