Good god, I miss this place. I used to go there at least once a week when I lived in St. Louis over ten years ago. It makes me happy to see that it's still going strong and has been for at least 20 years. At the time I used to go, it was a father and his two lovely daughters running it. I commented on how much I loved the music they were playing that the oldest daughter made me a mix CD of Middle Eastern music. I still have it and have converted the files to mp3, which I listen to currently. Such great food and great people. Next time I'm visiting my mother in the Louis, I'll definitely stop in for my usual falafel.

The shop keeper is so nice and helpful.I tried and loved the Shish Tauok and falafel. I cant wait to go back there.

Al-Tarboush has been my go-to for more than 12 years!! DELICIOUS FOOD with warm and friendly service. In college, friends from Jordan introduced me and I’ve been in love ever since. When I lived out of state, this was my FIRST and LAST stop during visits home. I bring all out of towners here and they return home dreaming of their next visit. I can’t begin to count how many times my mother and I have come here. It’s hands down our favorite spot. The food is unbelievably flavor

Love this restaurant and this family! Have been coming here for years since I went to Wash U. There is no better falafel in St. Louis.

Best falafel ever...

Wow, what a delicious and authentic middle eastern restaurant. I got a falafel sandwich. The falafel was made fresh, and was one of the best falafels I've had in the states. Great seasoning and it was actually moist! The pita, garlic sauce, tahini, and pickle were great accomplishments.

We're from out of town, saw this place recommended on Reddit and absolutely loved it. The falafel was wonderful, and the chicken shwarma had my brother licking his plate. If we were locals I could see this place being a weekly visit. The owner was so great, too. Spoke with her for a few minutes, she was full of personality and so kind. Cannot recommend enough.

I’ve been going to this place for over 20 years. It was my introduction to many foods from the Middle East. Still one of my favorite stops to make when I get over to the Loop.

Best falafel in the Midwest, hands down.

I started coming here a decade ago, I'd leave from my restaurant shift to sneak over for some hummus or dolmades (stuffed grape leaves). It's always the owner or his daughters helping out behind the deli counter and they greet everyone with a wide smile like you're family. This place was my introduction to Middle Eastern cuisine and culture. It's a mainstay in the Loop and a must try for out of towners and locals. Get the Chicken Schwarma and you can thank me later!!

This place smells of spices and it's fantastic inside and out, and the falafel is one of the most authentic around too. Pita is delicious, hummus is perfect, gyro meat is your choice of chicken, beef, or lamb and beef, and they have one of the most delicious kibbeh I've ever had. Al-tarboush is a total Saint Louis gem, as they have been operating in the same area for years. Get some baklava to go, because it's just a fantastic dessert to finish off an awesome meal!

Best falafel in St. Louis! Great feta dip too!

Since 1997 this has been my happy place. In all of these years I have never once been disappointed and it’s my favorite falafel and favorite tabuli in STL. This place is consistently delicious, run by the sweetest folks and never fails to make my day!

Delicious hidden gem on the loop. The food is all fresh and made to eat. The falafel was crisp on the outside and light on the inside. Meats are seasoned perfectly. The seating area is small, so be prepared to wait or take out. The wait time can be long especially if it is just the owner (who is super nice) working alone as cashier, chef, and expeditor. The deli also has a small selection of middle Eastern grocery items as well as some hookah and tobacco products for sale.

One of my favorite restaurants. Family run. Great people. Delicious food. I ordered the spinach fataya and grape leave rolls for a party and they were a big hit.

Wow! Service is wonderful, food is incredible. We had the Chicken and Beef Shwarma with a side of green olives and fries. Everything was great. Tatziki sauce made shwarma exceptional. Someone was raving about the chicken Shishtaouk... apparently amazing as well... definitely will order next time!!

My go to Middle Eastern place in STL. Family owned, great prices, the BEST falafel and tabouleh, garlic sauce is addictive. My usual to go order is falafel or beef gyro, and I pick up deli groceries for home: baba ganoush, tabouleh, hummus, garlic sauce, turnip pickles, olives, feta, and bread. They also sell houkah stuff if you like that. If you want great food go!!!!

An easy favorite of mine in The Loop. I love the chicken shawarma, the hummus and the chicken salad. So delish. Not to mention the friendly smiles and kindness of Baba and his daughter who work there. I have been coming for years and they always recognize me, asking how I am. They put the same attention into every order they make. Try it, you won't be sorry.

Fantastic. Terrific family/staff. Delicious food made with care. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This is a childhood establishment for me. Overall this is where you wanna eat no matter what. I promise you can't go wrong. Shouts out to papa. And Gina and sisters

I'm always down for falafels and this place is my favorite in STL. Their prices for the portions you get are awesome and not to mention all great quality, authentic food. I'd always prefer to go here over and other mediterranean/lebanese joint in the loop. The family that runs the store is always so hospitable and serve the food quickly and as if you're sitting down to eat in their own home. I've also purchased a hookah here and can say that the quality is unmistakably authentic and will probably last a lifetime. I will always support this establishment and I hope many other people find this hidden gem!
