Lebanon's Cafe is an excellent middle eastern restaurant. Their hummus is smooth and creamy and their pita is fresh. I got the chicken shawarma and it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. It is in a great location right on the street car line close to other restaurants & shops.

This is the place where locals go for Middle Eastern cuisine. All chicken dishes are well seasoned and moist. Portions are big, so you will need a to go box. Bring your own beer or wine.

I ate twice at Lebanon's twice recently, once for dinner and once for lunch. Starting at the top, the dinner was delicious and an excellent value: cauliflower and hummus appetizer, baked half chicken with vegetables, rice, salad, pita bread and bottomless ice tea brought the tab to $30 including tip. At lunch my wife ordered a vegetable plate which was... More

I enjoy going to Lebanon's Cafe with a lot of people because we can have lots of different things and sample each. All of the dishes I have tried are packed with flavor. The hummus is so different than the old thick pasty store variety. It is very light and lemony. I am a serious lemon lover. I usually get... More

We were a party of 4 and started with Babaganoush, taboule, and hummus. All freshly made and each was absolutely amazing. We shared the lamb chops and chicken with veggies. It was succulent and each mouthful was a explosion of flavor!

Out of curiosity, I went here after looking over the menu online and ordered Hummus with Lamb Meat seeing that a locale food critic recommended it. I’m not a big fan of lamb, but have had lamb chops which I like, so I ordered this dish which consists of Lamb seasoned with chef style spices then sautéed with onions &... More

Service is good, dining inside or outside is nice. Didn't do my homework prior, it is BYOB and saw a lot of people with their wine bottles. The hummus is great. Pita bread served warm.

This is our favorite middle eastern restaurant in town. I love both the sandwiches and the dinner platters. We usually get the food to go because the restaurant is loud. If you like this style of food, you will like Lebanon's Cafe. Bring your own bottle because they do not have a liquor license.

Ordered grilled eggplant sandwich, it was awful. How can a kitchen screw up a vegetable sandwich! Tabouli was excellent Still a noisy place.

We are locals and regulars here. They are very consistent, and consistently good. We love the lentil soup - it is the best. Often share the combo kebab cause it's so big. Hummus is great, as are all the small plate appetizers. Oh, and the falafel is amongst the best around. Comparable to the middle east itself. And be sure... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
