Olive Mountain is a zabiha halal restaurant with great Middle Eastern food. I'd recommend something, but everything is just so good it's hard to pick a favorite.

We were seated right away, but on a cold night they put us close to the door (even though it was early and we were some of the first people there), so it was drafty throughout the meal. There were three of us and they kept forgetting to bring enough glasses and plates. The hummus had way too much garlic, the small salads, which had fresh cucumbers, were over dressed and soggy. The seafood gumbo had obviously been made with canned (!) vegetables, and the meat in our entrees (chicken, the combo entree, and shish kabob) was terrible: tasteless, tough, and overcooked. We told the waitress that we didn't like the meal but she was unimpressed. The crazy thing was that this restaurant was PACKED by the time we left, especially with large groups of Northwestern students who are clearly either gluttons for punishment or clueless about decent food. It was so bad -- I would never, ever go back, not even for a small meal of tea and hummus and pita.

The prices may be cheap and affordable but I would not recommend Olive Mountain to anyone. All I can say is that the food is extremely unsatisfactory. I ordered Chicken Schwarma, mediterranian salad and cucumber salad. The cucumber salad arrived at my table looking like soup. The cucumbers were soggy and there was no flavor for a dish that claims to have fresh mint and garlic. My guess is that the cucumber has been soaking in the pool of yogurt for sometime. I would have forgiven the state of the cucumber salad but when the Mediterranian salad arrived, I noticed canned olives. Now, that is just unforgivable. The chicken was ok but it was a little dry. I ended up dipping the chicken in my pool of yogurt.
