Lebanese fast food is a brilliant idea and they pull it off great. They also have many kinds of craft beers on bottle. Good stuff

The food here is good, and the babaganoush is fabulous. Just fabulous. Best in LA. I am very partial to the vegetarian plate (8 falafel balls, hummus, babaganoush, tahini) and the grilled chicken sandwich on whole wheat pita. You have a choice of 5 items...More
