Falafel's Drive in
This original Bay Area Middle Eastern joint looks like a beat-up drive-in, but it is one of San Jose's most enduring restaurants. Since the 1960s, their falafels and gyros have been some of the best anywhere. People from all over the world have visited this place, and many people have been loyal customers since its conception. The items on the menu are delicious, inexpensive, and easy, so it's perfect for great food on the go.
This place is great! Best falafels ever! Try the falafel sandwich with a banana shake - you will not be sorry! The shakes are pure banana goodness!!! I had no idea what a falafel was until my husband took me there after we got married. Every now and again we head on down to treat ourselves. We recommend it to EVERYONE!!!
I haven't been to Falafel Drive In for about 30 years but plan on going there very soon because my wife has never had a falafel...I remember these scrumtious little beauties from my high school days...but have moved away from the bay area, so I miss them very much...I actually went to high school with William Nijmeh, it was all he talked about was his familys' restaurant...Falafel Drive In
This place is legendary for us native San Joseans. If I could rent a little corner of floor in the back to crash out I'd probably live my days happier than most. The food at this place is basic and phenomenal, concurrently. Try it, love it, live it... all I hafta say bout that
I have referred many of my client's (I am a party planner) to Falafel Drive-in for Excellent Food and Excellent Value - great if you are having a party with lots of vegetarians or if you just want something a little different.
Only drawback is they don't like to take your order in advance - they want it and hour or so before you come to pick-up, that can a little nerve-wracking on the day of a party.

Not much to look at, it's in a pretty run down area, and you have to eat outside, but... man, fresh ingredients, steady flow of customers, very tasty food, and cheap prices - this is one of those places you go out of your way to eat at.
