Two brothers, one dream—To share our love for Lebanese and Mediterranean food with our community. When our parents immigrated to America over 25 years ago, they brought with them a healthy appetite for work, and countless family recipes. That combination was the basis for a successful family-run food vendor business that Kareem (my brother) and I helped run. When our parents sold the business, we knew that it was just a matter of time before we opened our own restaurant.
With Kareem in his final semester at The University of Texas and me being a laid-off petroleum engineer, we had enough time to open our own place but not the capital. After a night of brainstorming, we came up with the perfect solution—the country's first Uber Eats exclusive restaurant! Since opening in early November, The Falafel Guys have been serving up Austins tastiest, and fastest, Mediterranean cuisines.
We always love hearing back from our community.
