4.5 out of 5 stars I was too lazy to make my own falafel so I ordered the Lebanese Falafel, which included falafael, roasted eggplant and lebanese slaw wrapped in a lavash. It was yummy and well-seasoned, a bit spicy. Along with the wrap, I shared a soup and it was the perfect satisfying dinner. I look forward to returning the next time I'm in the area. Reasonably priced, too. tammy

4.5 out of 5 stars Not the best falafel I've ever had, but still good. Same with the fries. I like the topping bar. The vegan baklava doesn't quite taste like baklava, I'm not sure why, but it still tastes good. cinnazimt

5 out of 5 stars Chick-o-peas has a wide and rotating selection of savory vegetable-based toppings for your falafel, all of which are vegan, 3 vegan sauces for your falafel as well (e.g. Tahini), and 6 fries toppings (of which Saffron Aioli and Med. Pesto are not vegan). I highly recommend this place for a savory and healthy meal. Pay $1 more for extra pita and enjoy more toppings. Now with vegan baklava too!!! greg

4.5 out of 5 stars Veg confession--I don't get the whole falafel thing. They don't offended me, but I never go out of my way for them. My recently converted husband however delares them "best veg*n food ever," so we had to try this place. Fries were great and I LOVED the toppings bar. The zhug sauce was off the hook. Falafel was okay, but for me I'll get the make your owl salad with toppings bar. ecureuil

3.5 out of 5 stars I wanted to like the place more than I did. Maybe I'm just not as into falafel and fries as I'd thought. Owner and staff are friendly and efficient; the pita bread is now vegan, having replaced the honey with agave in the recipe. Nice outdoor seating to complement indoor seating. Even with the toppings I just didn't find the falafel bar and garlic fries meal satisfying enough to give 4 stars. Vegan Living
