I've been going to Falfafel drive in for at least 5 years now. The service is quick, friendly and the food exceeds expectations.

Been going there for years and they're consistently great. No one can beat their falafels.Only gripe I have is if you go right @ lunch time, the lines are pretty long. Although when I was there, it moved fairly quickly.

This is a walk up, not a drive in. An "eat on the street" or "hole in the wall"...whatever you want to call it...the ambience consists only because of its lack of it . It is a throw back with plastic picnic tables and utensils,...More

As featured in Guy Fiery's Drive-Ins, Diners and Dives, this is a fast food place with a history. No longer a drive-in, it is still a local favourite, with delicious falafel, gyros, salads, etc.

Falafels are really small (less than 25c in diameter) and chewy and you get a lot of salad/pita bread and not a lot of falafel.
