Fresh food, nice staff. Enjoyed quick snack and it hit the spot. Recommend the chicken shawarma with the hot sauce. Definitely go for the special and you will also enjoy the falafel side.

I don't just like this place... I LOVE IT! THE perfect falafel and the most incredible, authentic Israeli style hummus this side of Jerusalem! Need I say more? If you like falafel and hummus... this is the place to go go in Denver!

The name says it all. I've eaten there twice, not consistent, but if you have the need for falafel, then its worth the try.

The Falafel King on 16th Street serves great M.E. food (as does the one in Boulder). The owner is Israeli and the food is very authentic. I like the shwarma pita, my wife the gyro pita. Also worth trying the falafel & hummus platter. The Falafel King hummus is a good as you can get in the area (also sold... More

Looking for a quick bite of International food in Downtown Denver? I had a Lamb Gyro on a pita along with some Falafel. Serving size was good, and the food on my tray looked delicious. The right things were crunchy, and others lean and tender. I will return.

Mediterranean food at it's best! Fresh falafel balls are generously served with every entree. They also sell their freshly made hummus in to go containers!

We stopped in for a quick lunch after arriving in Denver. After studying their varied menu, we both chose a falafel in pita pocket, complete with salad, tehina, and a Turkish tomato salad. Food was yummy and the owner was very friendly. The decor is attractive and there were outside tables available, although the view is of a main road.... More

If you want fast food, with a nice selection, visit the food court in the Republic Plaza building off 16th Street. For lunch, this place is fast, and it's always FRESH food. The servers know what they are doing, and you pick whether it's spicy or not. Try it -- over four years, we have always had good quality for... More
