The inside is quaint but has a hole in the wall vibe going on. Only one worker, the owner, seems to do it all here.

It takes about 10-15 minutes for food to come out. They take credit card but you have to pay $0.50 extra. At least you’re pre-warned about that.

The menu is short and sweet; 5 platter and 4 wrap options. Easy peasy.

I’m impressed that his prices hasn’t changed in years.

Trip #1
We dropped in on a Wednesday evening (around 6:45pm).

Chicken wrap ($6.99)
DSC04855The chicken was moist and tender. Make sure to ask for the hot sauce. There’s lettuce, purple cabbage, garlic tzatziki and hummus.

Falafel platter ($8.50)
DSC04848All the platters come with rice (except the falafel option), Greek salad and hummus.

It did come with a couple pieces of slightly warmed pita bread.

The hummus and salad are standard fare but let’s talk about the falafel.

Really impressed with them; you get four falafels and the inside chickpea batter is green! Tasty and appeasing to the eye.

Trip #2
We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 8:15pm) and it was dead.

Bread
DSC08815Four pieces of pita buns. Slightly warmed and light.

Chicken platter ($9.99)
DSC08816The meat was plentiful but this time around, the chicken wasn’t the best and I found it over seasoned.

DSC08819

Quite certain we were given the dry, end bits of the spit.

Lamb platter ($13.00)
DSC08817Lamb was solid. Good amount of meat, fairly tender and it retained it’s texture.

Decent eats at FC. Make sure to get the hot sauce
