We got lunch at Shawafel after visiting the nearby US Arboretum with our adult daughter. It's located in a funky/cute neighborhood with lots of small shops and restaurants. All three of us decided on the chicken shawafel sandwich. My daughter was happy that she didn't...More

Pleasant experience. We shared two sandwiches the Batinjan a crispy egg plant sandwich from their veggie menu and the signature Shawafel a combination of Shawarma and Falafel (a great combination) The secret is that from 3 pm to 5 pm you can get 25% off

I enjoyed the shawafel sandwich that I ordered. It came with falafel, garlicky sauce, french fries and chicken and was pretty tasty. The prices were reasonable compared to the more expensive Lebanese food choices in Arlington. My friend ordered the lentil soup and she liked...More

The place is like a late night falafel/shawarma sandwich joint. Fantastic. It's not incredible, but it's definitely satisfying. A stumble home becomes much better after visiting this place along the way.

Shawafel comes from... wait for it... shawarma and falafel, two mainstays of the middle eastern cuisine. I had the signature sandwich here a few nights ago and it was excellent. Well balanced, tasty and hits the spot perfectly. Highly recommended.

We've started ordering large platters of falafel and shwarma for casual family gatherings, when the alternative would be pizza or potluck. The food is excellent and delicious - I'm particularly fond of the pickles, fatoosh and a garlic cream sauce they send along with the...More
