Falafel's Drive In is a San Jose institution that has also received national media attention. And it's easy to see why. Not only is the food great, but where else can you get great middle Eastern food with old fashioned drive-in atmosphere?
Here is the business end of the menu. They also have a variety of other items, including the usual hot dogs, etc. I must say that the banana shake was very tempting but I haven't been good enough lately to justify that treat.
I ordered the falafel salad. The lettuce and tomato salad comes with a tahini dressing that is light but pretty tasty. It is chock full of falafels. Break into one and you see an incredibly green interior, which I take as an indication of the quality of the ingredients. The outside of each is crispy, the inside is soft and tender. Great stuff.
