Looks really deceive as this family run Mediterranean restaurant/art gallery is a gem admist a strip mall. The only clue to the warm welcome and the exceptional home cooking are the stone pillars outside. Sammy makes a delicate, delicious baklava that melts in your mouth....More

This place is an experience. It hits the spot. A young girl behind us said the food was "happy". To be sure, the brothers who run the place are so kind and the art is inspiring. If you are interested in eating vegan or vegetarian,...More

How can you resist eating a home cooked family meal of Mid-Eastern favorites amidst art work? Although Fairouz is nestled in a non-descript strip mall on Midway, you're immediately welcomed by tantalizing aromas from the long buffet in the entry dining area. Mama is the...More

This place has been around for over 30 years serving Middle Eastern and Greek foods. I have never been disappointed here. I order off the menu, but they always have a buffet going. It has a very nice Art gallery of the owners work.

Anyone who likes Middle Eastern food needs to come to Fairouz. The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 star is it homey rather than white tablecloth. If you are starved, the all you can eat buffet is amazing. For those with a normal...More

Quality food and lots and lots of variety. Not cheap at $16 for buffet but you will be happy you came. Favorites include gyro, rice, avogolemno soup, pickled cabbage, pickled turnips, rosemary water dessert. Yum. Awesome photos of horses in restroom lol.
