  • If you thought healthy and flavorful were two words that didn't go together, think again. Falafill, Boystown's falafel stand-cum-salad bar, will offer tasty food that won't threaten your waistline – Amanda Nyren, Centerstage Chicago
  • Wow, this place is a great idea. I never really know what to ask for at mediterranean restaurants, and the bar gives people like me a chance to stand, stare indecisively without worrying about being annoying, and ultimately try out a bunch of different flavors. – Lauren S., Yelp
