Easily on of the top falafels in NJ or NY... and I've been to just about all of them. This place is really terrific. Everything made fresh. My only complaint: the hours are odd. Oh, yeah, and the name makes no sense. Who hears "uncle jack's good to go" and thinks falafel? When I recommend this place to people I... More

If you like falafels this is the place for you. Made with fresh vegetables, hummus, and pita a falafel is a healthy and filling meal that's very reasonably priced. A great place!

Uncle Jack's is a very good place to go if you like falafel. They have regular and jalapeno and the hummus is very good too! Only problem is that you never really know when they will be open. They have some funky hours. Reasonable prices.

The only place I had better falafels was in Israel. Hard to compete with that! This is a friendly place with delicious food and great prices. Tuesday is 2 for 1 day!

I adore this place. I saw an excellent review in the newspaper and kept it in the back of my mind until I wanted Falafel. It's a small store in a strip mall. Very clean, very courteous staff, and they make the most amazing falafel. They offer a bunch of fresh & delicious toppings and you can select whatever you'd... More

I found this place by accident, it's in the Middlebrook shopping plaza on route 35 in ocean New Jersey. The food is great the prices are fairly inexpensive. and you can eat in or get it to go. The place is very friendly and very clean. If you read my reviews you know I like clean.

Excellent and tasty food! Loved falafel in a pita with all the condiments! The only suggestion - bring back the chicken shawarma!

I go here as often as possible. It's not really traditional falafel but it's AMAZING. The staff is really nice and will let you sample things before you decide what to order. They have wonderful menu items like mushrooms in hummus and jalepeno falafel burgers. I like to bring non-vegetarians here because there's a good variety of things on the... More
