Fast middle-eastern food? Yes! I had falafel with hot sauce which thankfully came on the side for the most part. Falafel is tasty and different with a little coriander seed in it. Great for a quick, cheap bite.

This was a great value to get a good, quick lunch in San Francisco. I was concerned because the line was long at lunch; however, it moved very quickly, and we were through the line with our order in about 10 minutes. The food itself...More

Not as great as the carts in Manhattan, but good nonetheless. Close to many hotels in the area, so it’s a great, inexpensive stop for travelers. Stick with beef over the chicken. And don’t forget the white sauce and hot sauce!
