We stopped at this place on the way to Estes Park. We parked on the street and walked a short way over to where we found Falafal King full on busy. The staff was obviously beat at this point but service was still great, and the food was even better. I really enjoyed a lamb gyro with fries and a delicious lemonade for $18. My wife and I spent less than $40 for a full meal each (sharing fries) which seems nearly impossible these days.
Pita seemed a bit stale and most of the plate was nothing to write home about, but the falafel itself was honestly really delicious and the perfect texture. And the guy running the counter was really nice with a great attitude. All in all, it’s a good place to pop in for a quick lunch, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
Best falafels I’ve had till date. Excellent Greek salad, baklava & Turkish coffee.
Even on a snowy day, the restaurant was packed with people. We enjoyed the variety of foods in the Casablanca platter which had rice, hummus, shawarma, pita, salad, dolma, falafel, and sauces for ~$16 each platter. It was a very filling lunch. It was mostly tasty, but by the time our platter was served, the shawarma was not hot or tender. There were a few instances while we were there where was food was missing from the platter (ours and others at the restaurant), but the employees fixed the problem quickly. Overall, I recommend this restaurant.
Out of all the amazingly delicious and mouthwatering restaurants in Boulder, Filafel King is one of my favorites. Honestly, I don’t think there’s a better place to get a salad. These salads are absolutely loaded with all the tasty, crunchy, yummy ingredients you could ask for. I always get gyros on top, which makes it a perfect vegetable-protein meal. Recently I met the owner who is not only friendly; he has a good dose of humor.
