I eat here at least once a week since it is a block from my office. I usually get the Rock Salad with extra dressing. Everything is made fresh when you order. I recommend it for a quick lunch.

The Rock is a great Lebanese/Mediterranean place. They have good prices with almost every meal under $10. The Greek chicken salad is really good and so are the gyros. The location is near campus, so parking will be limited. It would be best to walk.
