Turd Falafel 8/29/2006

I like to give places the benefit of the doubt. This review is based on ONE visit, so take it as you may. I ordered a gyro and my girlfriend ordered a falafel. We got what I interpreted as puzzled looks from the man taking our order. He spoke w/ the guy-in-charge type person and that guy knew what we meant. Pizza seems to be the main thing here, but their slices behind the glass looked pretty horrid. One in fact was grey and very obviously not made today. No way that thing was made today. I worked at a pizzeria for 4 years while going to college, so I know. We got our meals. Well the gyro meat was almost beef jerky, It was sort of a John Wayne WWI in a trench type meal but I'm a guy so I ate it - High five. Now on to the falafel. Whew, the falafel themselves where black. Yes, black. Ok, I know there are regional differences for falafel so I urged my girlfriend to continued... For one bite. I don't know what was up with that thing, my only explanation can be, well I don't know. I figure age would make them hard, but this one was like toothpaste viscosity inside and black but not really crunchy on the outside. I just think no one had ordered a falafel here in quite a while. Well, the only redeeming thing about the place is that they have beer, free WiFi, and the inside is very nice. One of the nicer pizza (er... and falafel) joints I've seen. Too bad they don't get that food situation sorted. more
