Victor's Falafel - Natick - Disaster!

Science Chick | Feb 25, 2013 01:55 PM

I've been meaning to post this for about a month. We stopped by on our drive out to the Natick Mall. I had read bad reviews in the past, and then he was closed. And then......reopened! So I wasn't certain if this was the same owner or whether a different owner, but we figured we'd try one falafel.

The place was dead and there was Victor sitting behind the register reading a paper. First, suspicions were piqued as I saw no fryer on site, only these holding ovens and a sandwich prep station. Falafel was relatively inexpensive but...what's this? $2 extra for some hummus in the falafel? Seems a little steep but, ok, we go for it, and also we make it a large to share. It came to something like $10 total, which is high for a falafel wrap...but it's the large, right?

Uh-Oh.....We see him take some falafels out of a big pan in the oven and make our order. When he hands me the order I ask for some hot sauce and he grumbles "It's already in there". We open the wrap to eat it and it is only about an inch and a half in diameter. Really, I kid you not! There were just a couple of horrible dried out and flavorless falafels in there, with hardly any vegetables. The $2 hummus? Well, I could barely see it, let alone taste it. This was such a sham, we were practically sick with anger.

Never again!
