I love going to Jersalem. Their food is always good. The prices seem to have gone up since the last was there but they give plenty of food. It is almost always crowded since it is next to DU so be prepared for a wait when you order.

Mediterranean and/or Lebanese cuisine is my favorite and, in my opinion, Jerusalem Restaurant is probably the best option for that type of food in central Denver. Having tried about a dozen other places, I keep returning to Jerusalem as my go to place. They have the usual selections, all prepared well and fresh tasting. They also have a dessert/sweets shop...

I love this place! My favorite is the lamb shank. They give you a large portion. I normally split it with someone. This place is also open really late so it's a great place to go for a late night meal.

We stopped in for an early dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The Lentil Soup was outstanding and the Falafel some of the best I have eaten. We enjoyed the Hummus, and Baba Ghanouj. However on our Combination Super Platter the rice was cold, had not taste. Also the meats were not hot enough. I would prefer the hummus and BG... More

This was our second time here. The food was not as good as a month or so ago. The chicken was very dry. They charged extra for the hummus on the lunch time meal (pricey at $11 plus bucks). The lentil soup is incredible. Right now that's the only thing that I would order if I ever go back. The... More

Came here for the first time. Had the lamb shank which was very tender. Best rice ever. The place is small but worth going. They also have great pastries. I love the baklava. The service was wonderful & the food came fast. Nice to try something different.

The food here is very good...service was WONDERFUL and it has an OK atmosphere. I had a meat sample and all three of the meats were very good. My wife loved the hummus. Well worth the visit.

It wasn't anything special. $35 for 2 meals and an app. App was nasty, we didn't even eat it. Meats were good, rice was so so. Probably wouldn't go back.

Looking for a eatery at midnight in the University district, we found this busy spot on Saturday night. The Gyros & and Falafel satisfied our appetite; however,the hummus was not my favorite.

We were working on a friend's house and were busy, so I decided to stop by this restaurant to get some food to go. Lunch was delicious. I ordered three entrees (vegetarian combination, gyros, and meat combination) and the three of them were delicious. Everyone was happy.

Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.
