Mediterranean Grill is a great place for a quick, cheap, but wholesome, lunch, dinner, or take-out. While the cafeteria-style ambience leaves something to be desired, itís a more than fair trade-off for fantastic food at a great price. A gyro or falafel sandwich costs only $3.95, but I highly recommend the special, which comes with gyro slices, shish kabob, kufta kabob, rice pilaf, pita, and salad. The entire meal will cost you only $5.95 as the Business Lunch Combo (including drink) or $7.95 as the Combination Feast after 3 p.m., which is still a great deal, considering the quantity and variety of foods.

The falafel at Mediterranean Grill is the best Decatur has to offer, quite possibly the best in Atlanta. And try some homemade assorted pickles on the side. The beet-pickled turnips are especially tasty, but then, I have a thing for roots. Speaking of tubers, there are a number of other vegetarian items on the menu. The only so-called ďvegetableĒ you might expect to find but wonít is French fries, and let me assure you that you wonít miss them! The rice pilaf is yummy, as are the Greek potatoes. So, if youíre in the mood for something thatís fast but not fast food, stop in.

Mediterranean Grill offers traditional Greek entrees alongside authentic and freshly prepared Middle Eastern food. In fact, the restaurant has also become a local gathering place for Arab- and Israeli-Americans and others who would like to bring peace to the Middle East. As the restaurantís owner notes, we all like the same kind of food. I say "make pita pockets, not war".

Catering available.
