Description

The truck is conveniently located and the owner is friendly, but that is about it. The food wasn't very good either time I visited, so if it is lunchtime, I would recommend Rami's. The "no lights" thing is kinda interesting though. -AG

This place needs to close down. The lady is sleeping everyday. She has 10 customers a dayor less. She is not friendly, or fast. Maybe if she learned how to operate a food cart she would do better. Shame, i heard this place used to be good. Not worth going to -Penn Student

HEALTHY for a food truck. If you start going there enough, the lady throws in an extra (excellent) falafel with your meal. Chicken platters are recommended especially. Don't go to Yue Kee (which sucks), go here! -Ben Franklin

I always go and get the chicken falafel sandwich for 5 dollars. Its open all the time which is definitely a plus. -Boa

Food is quite good; platters are large and quite filling. Overall, compares quite well with other food trucks..don't understand the barrage of negative comments on here. -Ben Franklin

Their food is great. The platters are filling and the grilled chicken and fallafel are amazing. The menu that is attached on this site is wrong. -Ben Franklin

Some of the best food on campus, seriously. Unfortunately due to location it is not as well frequented as it should be. Anything grilled chicken is damn good here (platter or sandwich). If you are feeling something with rice, can't go wrong with any of the platters. If you want something quick and filling, but that doesn't feel light, the sandwiches are perfect for you. Falafel and Grape leaves complement the food nicely, so seriously try it out! -Ben Franklin

The only thing that keeps this place from being a "top tier" food truck is the bad location, although I love this place I find it difficult to go out of my way to get food from there. When I lived closer to it though, I ate there all the time. Definitely anything grilled chicken (platter or sandwich) is a must. If you are feeling something with rice, definitely has some of the best options on campus. And if you want any sort of quick and filling, but light feeling, sandwich, this is the place to go. Falafel and Grape leaves are pretty good too! -Ben Franklin

This is the best Middle Eastern food I've had in a long time! I am not sure why people say the portions are small, because I am a big eater and their platters definately fill me up! Fast Service, great price, I would definitely recommend! -Philly Girl

Definitely order one of the platters. If you eat from lunch trucks as often as I do, sandwiches and chinese food gets old but this hasn't yet. -Alex

Great Taste,not much food Sat, 05 Apr 2008

The food is absolutely wonderful and the two women who run it are very friendly. Try the falafels, lamb shawirma, chicken shawirma, and kefta platters. Make sure to call it because the food takes about 8 minutes to make (1 platter). My only complaint would be the small portions. I'm a hungry guy so two sandwiches are minimum. -Mustafa

Those of you who are reviewing this down have probably only went there once and probably ordered the wrong thing. This food truck is hands down the best middle-eastern food truck on campus. Things you need to try, grilled chicken platter, kafta kabob platter, falafel sandwhiches. I like getting the platters with hot sauce and onions and the sandwhiches with "everything." Aside from this the friendliness and speed is damn good, only problem can be location (unless you live in the high rises, you are set). Give it a shot, you will get a delicious filling meal for cheap $. -semiregularcust

I always wondered why there was never a line in front of this truck. Then I found out why. -MS
