The Middle East meets
the Wild West
Why locals love it
This unsuspecting Denver University student hangout dishes up some seriously tasty stuffed grape leaves, spicy hummus, crisp falafel, tender schwarma, fluffy pita and tangy tzatziki among other Levantine delicacies.
Why you should visit it
Contrary to its humble appearance, this is one of Denver's favorite restaurants, evidenced by the multiple ad-hoc patio extensions. The flavors are both exotic and fresh, the portions are liberal and the service speedy. They're also open late into the night, till 4am Sunday through Thursday and till 5am Friday and Saturday.
Jerusalem serves no alcohol, but if you prefer to compliment your baba ghanoush with a cool glass of arak they do offer takeout and free delivery.
