Had to work down in San Jose so I decided to have lunch at the Falafel Drive-In on 2301 Stevens Creek Blvd. @ Revey Ave. Today was a nice warm, sunny day and there was a steady flow of customers coming by for a falafel fix. I tried the falafel and a banana shake....the falafel was very tasty - they top it with a spicy sauce - most ask for extra sauce. The falafel are crisp and grease free...very tender on the inside. I didn't try them but a lot of folks were ordering the fries and onion rings. They also made several varieties of fresh fruit shakes - the banana one I tried was pretty good. This place is quite the institution - many regular customers bantering with the order taker and/or asking about his father or another family member. A nice find.
