Yelp recently released its 10th annual “Top 100” list that ranks the top restaurants in the country, and D.C. had only one restaurant to make the list: the local beloved Falafel Inc. The iconic fast casual franchise was born in 2017 in Georgetown but has since grown into an enterprise expanding outside D.C. even reaching as far north as the NYC metro area.
What does Yelp’s “Top 100” say about Falafel Inc?
Well, according to Yelp’s recent rankings, they believe that Falafel Inc. ranks as the #31 top restaurant in America! While we think it could be a whole lot higher, and that a bunch of other restaurants from D.C. should also be on this list, we are proud to have our city represented by a local spot that offers such delicious food at such a good value. Speaking of good value, this was also the metric that Yelp claimed was one of the reasons why Falafel Inc. ranked so well; relative to the prices of other D.C. spots of equal quality, Falafel Inc. is considerably less expensive with a menu that’s highest price is around $5.
What do Yelp reviews say about Falafel Inc?
Yelp reviews about Falafel Inc. in 2023 have highlighted the simplicity of their menu, providing dining options that are not overwhelming or complicated. One of the most common remarks made by Yelpers in 2023 was their amazement regarding the falafel, the chain’s namesake dish, which follows an authentic family recipe and has been hailed by many as delicious. We also know from experience that whether you opt for a sandwich or a bowl, you should also pair it with an order of their Zaatar Fries, which are a crispy and well-spiced treat that acts as the perfect vessel to enjoy some of their delicious house-made dipping sauces (Habibi, creamy garlic, jalapeno, white, red, or tahini).
