|★★★★★ Double-cheeseburgers are the best. The sauces they use are amazing.|
However, let me tell you what I really like about this restaurant. I have been to places in Los Angeles, Toronto, any many other places in the USA, and nothing matches the Islamic atmosphere at Falafel corner:
1. There is no music playing.
2. All the brothers working there have full beards and kufis, masha Allah. They greet you with a salam and smile, as is the Sunnah of Ar-Rasool (SAWS).
3. They have a dedicated musalah, with Qiblah direction clearly marked.
4. When it is time to pray, a brother makes Azan and all the men who are eating, and the employees of the restaurant as well get up and pray Jama'at.
5. During Ramadan, the place stays open late to accommodate those who are fasting. They serve free dates, and play Na'ats.
6. Among the clientele, you'll always see muslim brothers with kufis, turbans, beards, dealing with each other in a very pleasant manner. I have personally seen Imam Suhaib Web and Imam Tahir Anwar there.
To the brothers who own this establishment, jazak Allah for your efforts, may Allah reward you with success in this dunya and the Akhira.
If you are serious about your deen, and love a good burger, you won't find a better place than this in the bay.
|★★★★ I love this place. The owner (or maybe he works there, I'm not sure, but he's always there) came out and gave our table free baklava because our party had small kids. |
The pizza sauce is incredible.
Con: I don't like the way the pizza tastes when we do take-out. It's amazing in the restaurant, but not as good when it's 20 minutes old.
|★★★★★ I had double cheeseburger and I loved it! There was a separate place for offering prayers which was great! We are planning to return there very soon inshallah.|
|★★★★★ Wow- cant get enough if this place! Burgers and gyros are excellent and served generously. Definitely recommend their cheese pizza- delicious! The decor in the place is always improving- they now have a prayer place set up which is nice! Lots of people always there and foosball set up.|
|★★★ Tex mex burger too good and fries too |
Chicken gyros ok type
Nice ambience and service
|★★ Falafel - 1 star. This is based of getting it twice. It was burnt and stale (lunch and dinner times). I dont get it, the bay area seems to to have terrible falafel in general. |
Gyro - 3 stars. Huge pieces of gyro though. Its meaty.
Pizza - wish they sold by the slice.
I don't understand the sandwich or wraps. Its half open and the lettuce is usually aged. Prices are fair though.
|★★★★★ Good burgers. Probably best halal burgers in the bay area.|
Have prayer rugs also.
|★★★★★ This place has amazing burgers and wings. We tried avacado and texas burgers. Both were excellent. Place is clean and comfortable and open late during Ramadan.|
|★★★★★ Awesome burgers and pizzas. Tried the texmex burger. It was good and juicy. Kids loved the foosball table.|
|★★★ tried the bacon cheddar cheese burger . I think the burger could have been better the meat was blant .|
still nice place recommend trying different options
|★★★★★ Update: Finally had their burgers, and YUM! big and juicy. The service is awesome, the owners are fabulous. Much more than falafel here (although their falafels are to die for!)|
I've only eaten in the restaurant once for an event, but I've also ordered and picked up food on several occasions. The food is great! The space very large, which is nice. It totally feels like a pizza place. There's room for people to pray and room for the kids to play without being too disturbing. I've had the pizza which is awesome! the gyros are okay. i'm looking forward to trying their burgers. My friends got their burgers and said they were really good.
|★★ After reading the other reviews here, I decided to give this place a try while visiting Fremont. I was pretty disappointed. I went there for dinner with my family. We decided to try their Burgers and a Gyro. My daughter wanted a hot dog and unfortunately they ran out and they were also out of chicken wings. We had a cheese burger a Tex Mex Burger and a traditional Gyro. Both burgers were overcooked to the point where the patty was actually kind of hard. The meat in the Gyro was over cooked and dry as well. The fry's were not very fresh. My son did not even finish his cheese burger due to it not tasting good. I felt it was a little over priced for the portion size and quality of restaurant. Our order included 2 meals that had a fries and a drink and 1 stand alone burger and it came out to $27. There are many better quality options in the area. |
|★★★ Tried cheese burger and Tex max burger. The regular cheese burger was better than other. They were little over cooked though. the service took quite a while, looks like either they are under staffed or under equipped. Place was not quite clean also|
|★★★★★ Excellent service. Cheeseburgers were tasty. Very reasonable prices. Will definitely come back. Recommend this place.|
|★★★★★ Nice large place for american food (self serve). Tried the burgers and pizza. Food is really good. price is very reasonable. Good option in the East Bay for american food. Haven't tried their falafel or kebab offerings. I would definitely go again and try the other gourmet burger offerings. Recommendation to the owners would be to periodically clean the tables, since not everyone leaves the tables clean after they leave. |
|★★★★ We have been here twice when visiting from Sacramento. Pizza is good, and Avocado Burger is yummy. Hot wings are just okay...overall I am happy with this place, although it is very dirty.|
|★★★★ Really nice place, very clean. They have a room to say prayers and even brought a long mat for large group to pray. Even has DirectTV installed so kids can watch cartoons or sports while parents enjoy the food. They also have foosball table.|
|★★★★ Went here for lunch today as I happened to be in the area. I had seen this place before but did not know it was Zabihah until recently after being approved by the HFSAA. I had the Tex-Mex burger as it was ok. I did feel they could of cooked the meat a little better, but it was filling and I did like the fact that it came with jalapenos, cheese and had bbq sauce. The service was really good and the place was neat and clean. The place looks small from outside, but when you enter you can see it very spacious with adequate seating. Prices are not too bad either. I hope to return here to try their Gyros and other burgers.|
|★★★★★ My friend just told me about this place and I had wanted a hamburger all day so I was happy to try it out. I had a cheeseburger and it was great. It's nice to see the newer halal joints that have a clean, inviting eating area and great service. Will definitely be back.|
|★★★★ I tried the Tex-Mex cheese burger which comes with grilled onions, green peppers, Monterey jack cheese, jalapenos and BBQ sauce. It was very good. The owner, Ahmad was very friendly and welcoming. This place also serves kababs and pizza. I recommend this place.|
|★★★★ Went here with a large group for lunch over the weekend. I had the Avocado Ranch Burger with Fries and a soda. The burger was very good. The fries were a little under-cooked for me. A couple of my friends ordered "The Savage" pizza which is an all meat pizza. I tried a slice and it was very good. The BBQ chicken + Jalapeno pizza was pretty good too. Ordered a chicken shawerma plate to go, and it was a little disappointing. Not very much chicken and not very flavorful. Plenty of seating inside the restaurant. The service is a little slow and the bathrooms could be cleaner. May be a good idea to call your order in ahead of time to avoid long wait times.|
