I have been to Haddad's serveral times and thoroughly enjoy the lamb gyro, chicken shwarma and falafel. I think the most fun dish is the Haddad dinner which comes with all of these dishes as well as an assortment of dips and pita bread. I am particularly fond of the garlic sauce!!!

My colleagues and I decided to try this place for a late lunch. I had a delicious beef shawarma sandwich with parmesan fries. The sandwich was juicy and had the right amount of sauce. The server was friendly and attentive, and we had an informative conversation with the owner about his shawarma sandwiches.

After a busy morning, I visited Haddad's with two colleagues from work. The gyro and falafel was tasty and hot. All and all, we had a great lunch and would return.

My son got married Dec. 2014, and their reception was catered by Haddad's. The food was very tasty, and displayed very nicely, price was reasonable too. They worked closely with my daughter-inlaw, to make sure everything was just right. I would use their services again

We had our first experience at Haddad's Downtown for lunch. The staff is extremely personable, attentive, and proud of their cuisine. We decided to order the Haddad's Feast for two so we could get a good taste of their specialities. The platters came with enough food to feed four people! Everything was very tasty with just the right about of... More

I was the matron of honor at my best friend's wedding and Haddads catered. The food was amazing!!! Those cheesy mashed potatoes were to die for! The staff was the kindest, sweetest people I've met in a long time. Thank you for being so wonderful!
