Jerusalem Restaurant

1890 E. Evans Ave. Denver, CO 80210 | South Denver | 303-777-8828

Location Description:

This DU hangout with its ramshackle patio doesn't look like much, but it's one of Denver's most beloved restaurants. And what's not to love? Jerusalem serves spicy hummus, fat little stuffed grape leaves, crisp and lemony falafel, tender shawarma sandwiches folded up in fluffy pitas that overflow with onions, tomatoes and parsley in tzatziki sauce, and a hundred other Middle Eastern delights. Everything is made fresh, never frozen (it says so right on the menu and tastes that way on the plate), and delivered to your table faster than you can say "baba ghanouj."
