Great customer service by owner. I am a traveller and yet this is the best Falafel and pita I had. Even Baklava was out of world.

Every time we visit Los Angeles area, we have to go to Joe's falafel at least twice. It's a small place, where you order your food and sit down to dine. If you are looking for ambiance then this is not the place for you,...More

Sorry to say I was excited for some Mediterranean and was quite disappointed. I got the chicken shawarma plate. My chicken and rice both tasted very bland. The hummus, bread and salad turned out fine. I was Not expecting something high quality but even the...More
