Middle Eastern food is my favorite cuisine and this place had a wonderful variety. I had the chicken tikka plate which was superb. Of course we had to buy a couple of the frozen pizzas and the baklava to take away with us. I had the baklava and I wished I had bought more! Crescent Moon is close to my... More

FOOTBALL PIZZA! I've been hearing about this for quite sometime and finally just took the leap. The two of us shared a small football pizza (house special), gyro plate, and baklava. Plenty of food for two people, but the football pizza stole our hearts! The gyro plate was just okay with the meat being the clear winner on the plate... More

We ordered the football pizza. The crust is thin but not to thin and soft in the center. The proportions of meat and vegetables that you get on the pizza are very generous. The sauces are very tasty. It was cooked perfectly and quite delicious. The prices are moderate. If you ever eat this pizza you will go back!!!

The standard by which I compare Middle Eastern restaurants is the hummus and this one has one of the top five in the city. The gyros are huge and fairly priced.

My husband and I went here for the famous football pizza and thoroughly enjoyed it. We got the House special with Afghani beef & peppers. It was cooked perfect and came with 3 sauces - the red & white were my favorite and really gave a kick to the pizza. My husband had a smoothie, they made it and then... More

My husband and I have become obsessed with Central Ave, even though we live in the western suburbs of MPLS. We love it for the excellent food and unique atmospheres of the restaurants which are mainly small, casual, ethnic places minus the fuss and expense of upscale eateries. We tried the football pizza, ordered with help from the friendly Afgan... More

Great pizza, but the gyro compared to other local places is lacking. One of the main staff guys during the weekend has trouble taking phone orders. But overall, a great experience. Plenty of seating.

Everyone should try this place! They have a variety of very tasty items on their menu, but what we go for is the football pizza with the Afgani beef. There are two types of sauces to put on it, simply described by the staff as "red sauce" and "green sauce", but the green is unbelievable. My wife thinks the sauce... More

If one loves the Middle-Eastern food, this place is for one! Unfortunately it is located far away from our welding. Otherwise we would visit this place much more often. It is well maintained place. However, one needs to wait for a while because their food is prepared while you are waiting. Their gyros is fantastic. Other meaty items are very... More
