I had a party that they catered, I ordered food for 22 and had tons of leftovers, amazing kabobs,salad and the garlic sauce is addictive! The food was labeled beautifully and excellent quality! I highly recommend!

Garlic 'n Lemons is simply so-so Arabic fast food. I ordered a spicy chicken shawarma roll up combo and got French fries and two pieces of falafel for sides. The fries were standard- no complaints there. The falafel however was pretty terrible; they were room temperature and had very little flavor. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I'm... More

Delicious food. Love the chicken shawarma (wrap or plate ). If you are staying in the Allston area it's a great spot to have lunch or dinner. Generous portions.

My son took me to this restaurant for a quick bite. I really don't like hummus but he made me try it. It was not gritty at all and very tasty. The kebab was delicious. I woul recommend this restaurant.

I will start saying that a Saudi brought me there,so you'd expect him to know Arabic food! Everything was delicious and the service very quick! Also the bathroom was very clean,which is not for everywhere considering it was a busy Friday night. I just can't wait to be back!

My son is a regular at Garlic 'n Lemons and suggested my husband and I stop there for a quick lunch. We popped in quite early on a Saturday, minutes after they opened, and found several tables already occupied, and more people coming in as we stared at the lunch board and offerings behind the counter. It's a cute place,... More

I stopped here with my girlfriend one day while shopping. She ordered a falafel wrap combo, I got a spicy chicken and spicy beef shawarma combo, and we got a beef kibbeh to share. The food was all really good - the Greek salad could have been a little better, but the shawarma was some of the best I've ever... More

Love the Schwarma and salad! Don't forget that yummy garlic sauce... The sides are just as good, particularly string beans. At these prices, can't go wrong.

Got takeout here on a hot day while moving into the neighborhood. Won't call the service "friendly" but it was efficient. They were cheap with the hot sauce though. The wraps were huge (recommend the wheat bread) and pretty cheap. The food was freshly prepared and very flavorful. Highly recommended

Quick fix for lunch/dinner/snack. Spicy chicken/beef Shawarma are great. Vegatarian options too with too many sides to choose from.
