Absolutely wonderful food. The owner is incredibly nice and just likes to talk with the guests, which made the place even better. It's a hole in the wall location with really good tasting food. This is coming from a guy who lived in Dallas where awesome food is all over the place.

The food is amazing here. Definitely the best falafel I've ever had in life! Ice atmosphere, great music, super solid food. My gyro plater was AMAZING!

The taste was authentic lebanese, and the hospitality was very nice. Just a bit slow on the serving side, and lebanese us nit something i would prefer.

Good food, friendly service. You can buy a jar of green Syrian kalamata olives at the checkout. Give them a try!

Group of 6 went there about 1830 hours and waited for about 10 minutes in line to be the next person in line to give order. I noticed that the person taking the order was going in the kitchen and bringing the food out to tables to serve (Possible hygiene issues). So obviously they didn't have any help. He came to counter and told us that the restaurant closes in 15 minutes. We were little disappointed, but we asked if we can take it to go, he said that's fine. We ended up taking it back to hotel and ate. Food was OK. May try it again just to see if we have any better luck.

The food is good. There are certain items I would recommend if it is your first time here. The veggie platter is really good and gives a variety of their dishes. The baklava is very comforting and I enjoy it every time.

DELICIOUS, clean, friendly … wonderful experience!


We were out running around during Texas Tech graduation and happened to drive by this restaurant and made an immediate turn around. It was late afternoon and were the only visitors. For a few minutes anyway. Just after ordering two large parties entered and clearly this was a popular place. He food was outstanding with nice servings of hummus and baba ghanoush to start. Plenty of pita was served too. Neither dish was too oily not too strong in flavor. Two of us were served large plates of lamb/beef gyro meet with an outstanding rice side. The rice was the best I have ever had. The third party had a gyro of the same dish and it too was terrific. The salad dressing served on the simple side was awesome too. Service was quick and friendly. The price was also great with an excellent value. Two drawbacks. 1. The baklava was a disappointment and mass produced. 2. Meals were served on disposable plates with plastic utensils. That was probably a covid thing but we did not ask. We most definitely recommend and would gladly return to this small, unpretentious cafe. We loved out visit.

This is the best Lebanese and Mediterranean Cuisine in Lubbock. Coming from Dallas/Fort-Worth area, all of the other places do not compare to this restaurant. The food is actually cooked and seasoned really well. The only thing that I would change would be the pita bread. Other than that, this will be my go to place from now on.
