I just got out of lunch from New Jerusalem. Everyone raved about this restaurant so I thought I would give it a try with my daughter as a treat. We ordered from the menu that I thought was priced well. $5.50 for a falafel, $5.50 for a beef

After hearing a raving review about Jerusalem Restaurant from a friend, we decided to eat there for dinner tonight. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the service and food quality.

The food: Our party of four shared stuffed grape leaves and hummus for the appetizer. The grape leaves were pretty good as was the hummus, but the pita bread was cold and somewhat stale. My chicken gyro entree provided me with tasty chicken, but the yellow rice side (served with each entree) was disappointingly dry.

The service: The poor service was much more dissatisfying than the dry rice and cold pita bread. The waiter never came to our table unless we called him over--we almost felt like a nuisance just making our order. Then, to top the dinner off, we noticed when we got the bill that the teaspoon size tzatziki sauce containers cost us 50 cents a pop. They were so small we kept asking for more of the mini-containers, so when the bill came it added about $6 to the total. I signaled to the waiter to come over. When he did I asked where on the menu did they mention the 50 cent charge for sauce. He looked at me with a blank stare (even though this particular man had flawless English). I tried again saying, "We did not see the 50 cent charge noted anywhere on your menu" So, he just said, "OK"
I couldn't believe his lack of response. I then said, "Well, it would be nice if you told someone next time about this charge because we would not have asked for so much sauce." He again said, "OK"

The $6 is not a big deal, but what bothered us was his complete lack of customer service.

This small resturant located near DUs campus always has a line out the door! It is known for its family like atmosphere, traditional middle eastern food, and the feeling of rich culture. They are open late hours giving college students a perfect place to get a bite to eat and study. Its best time is during warmer weather giving you the chance to eat outside on the porch. My personal favorite of this resturant is there lamb gyros! It is a heaping portion of delicious yellow jasmin rice, tender savory lamb, a salad mixture, pita and humus! enrapturing all the flavors together or seperate it is absolutly wonderful! Among many other selections their falafas and lental soup are great! and you havnt even had desert yet! if you still have room or just want to stop by and have some tea and a delicious bite try from there many exquisite deserts. Although this place is small which is why i suggest going during warmer weather, you will love its traditional taste and rich culture!

Excellent value for your dollar.

Tip (1). Buy the coupons on www.resturant com before going here. Makes it a better value yet.

Tip (2) Dine in, The portions are much bigger when you eat in. The to go boxes are smaller than the plate serving. You'll still enough for a nice lunch the next day

Pros: Nice staff, fast service, Great Food.

Cons: Could be a little cleaner. Clean enough though...

After reading so many good reviews, my daughter finally talked me into going to Jerusalem. What can I say about this place, except for the food was awful and the place was very very dirty. It looked liked this place has not been cleaned since it was first opened. We also had the unfortuniate experience of eating inside. It was about 80 degress outside but it had to be atleast 100 degress inside. Along with the heat there were flies everywhere, you probably would have experienced less flies sitting next to the outside trash can. If you decide to eat at Jerusalem, remember you have been warned.

oh sweet jesus, the lamb here is TO DIE FOR. So its a little small and can get crowded. I like it. Adds to the experience. I know the family that owns the place and I do my best to support the local mom & pops in denver.
Its worth your time and money for sure. tru the Kulage dessert and the hummos & cucumber salad are good too. Vegitarians: this is your spot.. hitt it up cuz the falafel is amazing too.

Former DU kid here and I used to love this place. Yes its a sore to the eye if you sit down and dine but the food always came out great. Having moved back to Denver I started going in again and don't know if the management changed but it just ain't the same.

The food is still good if you know what to get. The kebabs are usually dry-stick to gyros. Let the waiter/waitress know ahead that you want the food warm and the pita warm. Gyros is the best in town and the I can eat the rice by itself. Baba ghanough has a nice smoky flavor. Their arabic coffee hits the spot.

Service is so-so, depends what mood the staff is in-excpet for that one gorgeous gal behind the counter who used to work there-petite thing with beautiful dark eyes who always got my order right and did so with a smile. Hell I would dine in and get my butt frozen if she still worked there. lol

I like the fact Jerusalems is located near a college campus. They close LATE which means you can satisfy your craving anytime of day. I've eaten there once, every other time I get it to go and eat at home with family & friends.

The food is great...I love the hummus and beef shawarmah.
The service isn't that great, the servers aren't friendly at all and look at you like they don't even want you there.
The atmosphere isn't that comfortable. There is limited seating inside and some outside.
It is across from a university, and they are open until really late in the evening/early morning.
I recommend this place for the food, solely.

Jerusalem is the best middle eastern restaurant I have ever eaten at! Their falafels, hummus and fatouch are amazing! I also love their saffron rice! It's delish! If you're in Denver and you are craving something different at 3a, go to Old Jew!

My son and I stopped here for lunch one day on the recommendation of a friend who knows that we like Middle Eastern cuisine. I was disappointed in the food. It wasn't bad but it just didn't stand out as anything special. The dining area is funky and a bit on the dingy side. This is a restaurant where you order your food at a window and then they bring it to your table. Our food was delivered by a woman who obviously didn't want to be there that day.

Jerusalem is well known for it's Middle Eastern Fare. I have eaten there a couple times and had take out a handful of times at the insistence of my middle eastern friends. I have often felt that the restaurant is less than CLEAN. This puts a damper on my enjoyment of the food. I always pray that I won't have to use the womens bathroom which is way outside and inconvenient to the dining area. Also the bathroom is 1/2 step up from an outhouse and that is a generous description. At least take out one can pretend that they don't see all the dirty distractions.

This was a great place for dinner. The gyros was very good and the spanokapita was delicious. The parking was a little tough but worth the time spent looking for one. The service was fast, and the food portions were good. Plenty of dishes available for the vegitarian. Prices were reasonable. A younger crowd for the most part... all in all a nice experience.

Warning!!! This was the worst eating experience ever. If your going to place an order make sure you've blocked off some significant waiting time. Also, don't expect the food to be warm :) Basically it is just bad! Spend your money elsewhere.
Also, I called once for to go food (everything else was closed) I should have learned my lesson because the food was not ready when I went to pick it up and I had to reorder (apparently they lost the order) and it STILL was given to me cold. There are other Great middle eastern style restraunts in town I would highly recommend any of them over this place. Good Luck!

SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE - VERY PUSHY

FOOD CAME OUT RELATIVELY QUICKLY BECAUSE IT WAS PROBABLY JUST SITTING IN THE KITCHEN... SURE TASTED THAT WAY =(

PARKING WAS NO PROBLEM BUT OF COURSE WE WENT ON A TUESDAY NIGHT DURING SPRING BREAK

FOOD QUALITY WAS HORRIBLE - I WOULD HAVE MUCH RATHER EATEN DIRT

OVERALL, WORSE MIDDLE EASTERN FOOD EVERY EATEN AND I HAVE GONE TO MANY MIDDLE EASTERN RESTAURANTS (30+)

BOTTOM LINE- DONT WASTE YOUR TIME - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO EAT...

Every year I see reviews rating this as "The Best Late Night Eats" and "The Best Middle Eastern Food" and want to scream!!! Yes it is nice to have an option other than Taco Bell for the post bar closing time, but this is not "THE BEST" at anything unless you like abuse (both to your stomach and your ego). The food while passable, is hardly good: the pita is usually stale no matter what time of day, the hummus nasty and the food is either overcooked or tepid, and the orders are rarely correct. Then we get to the sevice, on a good day it is cold and on a bad it is downright abusive: I have seen the servers yelled at by co-workers to the point that they cried and I have had people in my party refused service because they are Jewish and seen others turned away because they are black. In other words, if it is 2:30 am and you are white living in DU you will at least get served (but what you will be served is anyone's guess), otherwise head over to Colorado Blvd for better Middle Eastern Food, or up to Golden to Ali Baba's for the best. THUMBS DOWN EVERY YEAR!!!

I decided to stop by the Jerusalem Restaurant today on my way home from work for a take out order. The food as always was average but the service is less then desirable. It seems as if there are always new servers who could care less about the customers sitting in the restaurant. Sometimes I get the impression that they are bothered by the patrons sitting in their establishment. I understand that Jerusalem offers a discount meal to the students of DU but they really need to improve on the customer service. If you?re looking for a quick late night meal then Jerusalem is the place for you, otherwise take your business somewhere else. The bottom line is these people have made a lot of money over the years and they could care less if anyone ever eats there again. Anyone who rates this restaurant higher than average has unfortunately never experienced real Middle Eastern cuisine or hospitality.

I love this restaurant because its within my budget and they are the only restaurant I've been to that makes a chicken gyros like they do. I'm not into their hommos, but love their baba ghanouj and falafel. Its a great place and the food is consistent.

If you have been to the middle east before this is the resteraunt for you! The food is pretty darn close the the resteraunts you would find in the Red Light district of Amsterdam, or the party town of Eindhoven, Holland. After spending hours in the coffeshops or the bars and clubs of Holland there are many resterants like as this one in Denver. It has a wide aray of differnt quizines from Isreael, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece. Although people have complained about the cleanliness of this place, it is pretty darn clean compared with resteraunts of the same kind in the countries that I mensioned above. I highly recommend they gyros plate, and the baklava. Watch out for drunken DU Hockey players, and Denver Broncos late at night they like to start fights out side of the resteraunt.

My brother-in-law suggested your restaurant. We had to be elsewhere by 7 p.m. We arrived before 6 p.m. I ordered soup and kallayah. I didn't care for the soup but my son did, so he finished mine. The others got and ate their entrees while mine was forgotten. By then, it was almost 7 and I left having had no supper and only an insincere apology.

I've been going to Jerusalem for years for take out and I hit the wall last Tuesday when for the zillionth time, I got home and my order was wrong or incomplete. The staff are friendly, the food is excellent, but if you're not eating in (which leaves something to be desired in the atmosphere department), don't eat at all. Jerusalem keeps winning 'Best Of Take Out' awards, and my contention is that a restaurant in that category should be able to get the order right!!!

This place made me start liking falafel. The service is absolutely horrible, but it seems worth it. Perhaps more take out is in my future, though, after today. Their fatoush is okay, but a lovely contrast to the falafel. The dinner plates are gigantic and the sandwiches are a little small--I suggest sharing appetizers if you're staying there.

Having read the other reviews, each says something true about Jerusalem. If you are hungry in the wee hours of the night, it's fantastic! It's so different from everything else around campus. Also, you definately get your money's worth. Lots of food for Little cash. It is true that the wait staff can be less the attentive and sometimes, dare i say it rude, does it really matter? I think not. I tell everyone i know that they should go to Jerusalem, once at least. To me the best part about Jerusalem is the people watching. There is nothing better than watching drunk 19 year old stumbling around and pigging out on highly satisfying food at 2:30 in the morning.

It is not an upscale restaurant, and crowd mostly consists of local students. It is opened all night, food is delicious, but not if you are health freak. And you can meet intelligent people, and have an actual conversation!

I used to be a big fan of this place up until a year ago when my 8yr old son and i witnessed the manager screaming at a customer in the middle of the restaurant. She was upset with her order and he refused to comp her meal - not only he was he disrespectful to her he let 3 of his employess join in the bashing. I will never go back

Jerusalem is a winner. Two people eat for under $20, without having to consume a pile of grease (and feel sick afterwards). I've never tried anything there that I didn't like. My personal favorite is the gyros sandwich - Yum! If you're on a real budget, try the yoghurt salad.

Jerusalem Restaurant is very over-rated. The food is somewhat above average, but whatever happened to service and courtesy? Every staff person my date and I encountered at this place on two different occiasions seemed to resent having customers at all...they all seem like very angry people with chips on their shoulders. If you can forgive these qualities and go just for the food, you'll have an ok experience. Be careful when you read other reviews..."Best food ever?" *HARDLY* Don't confuse 'best' with 'different'. If you follow trends go ahead and go to this place, but if you set trends, find a better place for M.E. food, it should be pretty easy - especially where service and courtesy are concerned!

If you can forgive these qualities and go just for the food, you'll have an ok experience. Be careful when you read other reviews..."Best food ever?" *HARDLY* Don't confuse 'best' with 'different'. If you follow trends go ahead and go to this place, but if you set trends, find a better place for M.E. food, it should be pretty easy - especially where service and courtesy are concerned!

Pros: none

Cons: rude & unattentive, bad for dates, don't go

I have never driven by this place once, where there wasn't a line out the door (including 12am-2am.) These guys have to be millionaires. The food is superb for the competition it has (late night hour dining). It's a change from the IHOPS, Taco Bells, or even Taco Express - which is good too. The Beef Gyros are just seasoned perfectly and there a a wide variety of desserts. The atmosphere though, is strange - but who cares. Good food, good service and good hours!

It may not be the best middle eastern restaurant, but it is the best middle eastern restaurant open 2-4 am. I like the open air deck, piped in middle eastern music, casual atmosphere, and friendly service. Sometimes the music is a bit loud. The waitresses have a tendency to neglect you once your food is served. The indoor seating is crowded and the ourdoor seating not on the deck is well, in the parking lot. Overall it's something different, and the food is really satisfying.

Pros: Open 'till 4 am, nice open deck, reasonable prices

Cons: mediocre service

Whether you've just closed the book on a late Saturday night of studying or partying, Jerusalem will fill the void, whatever the hour. They are open 24 hours Fridays and Saturdays and have the best Middle Eastern fare in town. They have Arabic coffee to pep you up, yummy falafel, shwarma chicken (and the list goes on and on) to fill you up, and sweet sweets you'll definitely want to talk up.
Best late night yummies!

Lets face it. It is the second worst middle eastern restaurant I ate at in Denver. Albeit the management probably makes every effort to cook authentic middle eastern food, the restaurant fails to meet a presumed standard a person from middle east would have. The food was C grade. The pita bread bought from local KwickiMart was stale and not even heated. If you never had good middle eastern food then you will not know the difference. But if you ever had a half way decent food then you will be very disappointed at this restaurant.

It doesn't look like much, but that hasn't stopped Denverites from flocking to this Middle Eastern eatery for the past 25-plus years. The food is fresh and cheap. On a hot day, start with the refreshing cucumber salad: cubes of cucumber…
