Really good Gyro sandwich and the best humous in town. Very reasonably priced. Casual atmosphere.

The buffet is a good value--excellent pita and hummus too. Plated orders can be a bit pricey. I ordered a falafel sandwich and it was >$7 for just the sandwich (no sides). Have gone a few times and it can get crowded. The parking lot is in the back but it's really cramped and tough to maneuver, especially in the snow. Better to just park on the street if you can. Sometimes it's packed for dinner--possible that I just came during Ramadan and it was not the norm.

Would recommend for people who would like to try middle eastern food, but be aware the service is pretty minimal and it can be crowded.

The first time I went to Holy Land, I had one of the chicken sandwiches with both cucumber and hot sauce, and it was really good. The sauces really made the sandwich for me. I've gone back 3 more times and ordered the same thing, and all 3 times they've forgotten the sauce. They type it in the computer when I order (and charge me for the "extra" sauce, I think), and every time, no sauce. Shame on me for forgetting to check at this point, but it makes me really angry. Without the hot sauce to excite my taste buds, the chicken is bland. Overall, Holy Land is cheap and you get a lot of food, but every time I go there I'm increasingly disappointed.

I grew up in Lebanon and have always struggled to find the proper ingredients to cook Lebanese food, until I visited this grocery store. I finally found Labneh, Jallab syrup, fresh Lebanese cheeses like Baladi and even Kri-kri! All perishable foods are fresh and there is a great selection. I did not have a chance to taste the cafe foods but was very happy to find fresh Khobez and even Italian pastries.
Highly recommended!

I used to like Holy Land, but then I tried Marina Grill (4755 Central Ave NE, Minneapolis)/ Marina Grill & Deli (2424 University Ave NE, Minneapolis). The former chef of Holy Land started Marina and so now Holy Land doesn't even come close. Marina has an excellent buffet with excellent choices, not the nasty one like Holy Land.

Marina has larger space, more food options, better hummus/grape leaves/spinach pies/falafel/gyro/etc, friendlier service. Also, Marina's catering is cheaper and much better than Holy Land's. Holy Land's food used to be good, but now I have heard of so many people getting sick from it. Majdi is buying apartments in an attempt to make money because his restaurant is not as good as it used to be. It's outright gross now.

This place is great! The grocery store has a wide selection. The produce is fresh, the olive & feta deli are amazing, the breadth of choices for all the various types of pita etc are amazing! The restaurant next store is really good, fresh, and the buffet is also good!
Hummus, Feta, Olives, can't be beat!

just wanna thank brother Majdi for giving me the chance to work in one of the best Mideastern grocery and Dali store in the twin city.. and for all the love he and his family gave me.working at the Holyland Store was a very helpful and good chance for me to get to know more about Mideastern food.. they serve and sell the most Delicious Mideastern food i have ever seen. i recommend everyone close by to go and check it... they have reasonable price ranges as well. so stop thinking about how much the stuff cost, and start thinking about how good it taste.

This place has the best falafel in town. 2 out of the 4 times I ate their my order was wrong.
The first time was a mistake, but the last time the Cook says when I am at the counter to
get my food, "You are going to be dissapointed, I didn't fix your order", and the order was wrong.
Some restaurants try to please thier customers until they are tired of seeing your face.
I guess I'll cook my own falafel.

Holy Land is a great place to shop for middle eastern food. They revamped the place couple years ago and now have a pretty good deli mart, grocery store, bakery and meat shop. Though I do not really understand all the stuff they sell there I recommend their whole milk yogurt; nice and creamy. They also have good hummus. I also like thier bakery section. I like the afghan bread and the pitas. They also serve koshered meat . I buy lamb from here. It not bad. Check this place out sometime.

This is a very good middleastern resturaunt and store. They make very good gyros and have a buffet which is a very good deal. The grocery store also has a wide variety of foods.

This deli and grocery located in Northeast Minneapolis is a neighborhood institution. They have a good selection of Middle Eastern offerings as well as some more "American" fare, as well as a fixed-price daily buffet. The deli/restaurant is attached to a grocery with a halal butcher shop as well. While you're there, don't forget to grab a few packages of their fresh-baked pita bread and a to go contained of some of the best huumus in town.

and my boyfriend wants a gyros, this is the only place I EVER think of- especially if I want casual and inexpensive. The buffet lunch is great and a HUGE value. Friendly staff, and a frequent diner card to boot!!!
