Good hummus and good hearts

Welcome to my favorite lunch spot in Glendale. This place makes bad days good and good days great.
They don't ask for my order anymore. They just ring it up when I walk up to the counter: hummus appetizer, to go. The guys behind the counter, bless them, throw my pitas on the grill to start warming them up as soon as they see me walk through the door.
When I meet my husband there for lunch on occasion (he's a huge fan of the gyro and falafel wraps), they know the order will be a little different, and that we'll be eating it there.
I keep going back because 1. the prices are really reasonable, 2. the employees are great, and 3. I am seriously, literally, undeniably addicted to their hummus. I have had a lot of different types hummus in my day. You might say I'm a hummus connoisseur. And theirs is the best there is. I'd buy it by the vat if I could.
But now, I've learned they're generous, too. I told them about our Grand Canyon training and the money we're raising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and they have committed to donate a portion of their sales one day to the cause.
Check back for an update on the date we select, so you can try this place, too. You'll become a fan for life. If you need a sneak peek (who could blame you), they're on the southeast corner of 75th Avenue and Bell Road.


  1. Mmmmmmm. I heart hummus. I'll meet you there for lunch...I might be a *little* late though.

  2. Meghan,
    Yummy hummus! I'll remind Kelly & Michael to take me to Glendale on my next visit. Good food and generous hearts is a winner!
