    Have been coming here for years. We had lunch at 1:30 PM. They serve you three small bowls of pickles and olives, salsa and pickled veggies (lettuce, celery and carrots) after they take your order. The service was great - no complaints there. We loved the Chicken House Schnitzel and the Hummus w/ Mushrooms! Fantastic! The sides for our Schnitzel were the Israeli Salad and grilled vegetables (broccoli and thick sliced yams). Both were very good and the yams were delicious. They have large portions, so no room for dessert, but we ordered their egg salad to go (also very good). Loved it and highly recommend.

    I have had a bajillion experiences with hummus, Schwarma, Falafel, kabobs and this place is to DIE for. I guarantee even the Foodies out there couldn't disagree. People who work there are AWESOME. You feel like you are in their home having a Sunday dinner EVERYDAY. I had a coupon but this is one of the only places where I have bought a coupon and I go regularly with or without one. And they treat me nice either way. So many places in this town treat you like garbage or a 2nd class citizen if you present a coupon. Hummus Bar truly appreciates the business. Maybe it helps they recognize me now. If I could do this from a dietary point of view I would eat here twice a week. For now it is once a month. Again...only because I always overindulge.

    Went there for late dinner but way before closing time. I couldn't tell if we had 2 servers or if our male server just forgot about us and the female waiter was just picking up his slack. We tried to get the male waiter's attention over and over again to get the bill be he was very deliberately not looking at us. He even went outside to talk to his friends while we were trying to get his attention. Finally asked the female server for the check. She seemed very annoyed with the male server, but was very nice to us. We made sure she got the tip. Also when we first arrived they said there was no reservation even tho we had made one through open table. It turned out that they had used it on another couple. Weird. Swing and a miss all around.

    I have been to this restaurant many times and twice in the last two weeks. Both times, we added the assortment salads to our shared meal. They were super yummy, great variety, perfect for a vegetarian. On the first occasion, my friend and I shared the liver and onions. It was probably the best liver and onions I have ever had. Amazing! This week, my friend and I shared the trout. Also amazing! Service has only gotten better with time. The fact that they are on groupon is an extra bonus.

    My Wife and I come for the bread and hummus. The pita bread is fresh baked and has never failed to disappoint us. It is always the ABSOLUTE BEST we have ever eaten. And we have eaten a lot of different ones. It's hard to sum up, but it is simply consistently the best!

    My mom and I enjoyed a delicious lunch here. The food is excellent and the portions are quite big. I would like to recommend this restaurant and be back myself. However, the parking is AWFUL!!! The restaurant is stuck in the back of a small overcrowded mini-mall with insufficient parking. Most of the spaces in the mini-mall part are 30 minutes only and some are for just the store that's in front of the spaces. The bottom level parking is a joke. Most of the parking is for employees. The was no space for me to park in the patrons area. There was no street parking spaces at 1PM either. I finally had to park in a 30 minute space and chance it. The hostess told me that they don't ticket cars. Nice to know after that frustrating parking search!

    We just love the food at the Hummus Bar and Grill. This is a middle eastern Israeli restaurant specializing in hummus, tabouli, falafel and wonderful freshly baked bread. The food is the main attraction here. We have always eaten outdoors since the noise level inside is so high its hard to have a conversation. Eating outdoors is mostly in the parking lot/drive way of a small shopping center. With this said, the food is delicious and the service is attentive.

    We always enjoy dining here, the food is fresh and of good quality. They make the best Israeli salad and allow you to have it the way you like, for me that's without onions. I truly appreciate not having to pick out the things I don't like! Of course their hummus is delicious, and they offer many variations. The chicken breast skewers I had this time were moist & flavorful. The noise factor was a challenge for my mother in law since she has hearing aids & it is quite loud in there.
