To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get $40 worth of Middle Eastern dinner fare at Al-Zaituna on North Mesa Street, or for $9 you get $20 worth of lunch. Born and raised in Jordan, owner Khalifeh Abdelaziz shares the classic dishes he grew up with at Al-Zaituna. A hearty menu covers both lunch and dinner with authentic Middle Eastern favorites, falafel sandwiches, classic burgers, and salads. The bite-worthy bounty of the Al-Zaituna combination plate ($12.99) includes four grape leaves stuffed with rice and beef or chicken, a skewer of shish kebab, and a fried kibbeh, all of which can be moated with yogurt dip to ward off encroaching tablemates. Complement the cuisine with enthusiastic puffs on a hookah filled with one of an array of flavored tobaccos ($8.99–$9.99) to convince rival wizards you've disappeared in a cloud of smoke. Belly dancers perform every Friday from 7 to 9 p.m.

Reviews

Yahoo! Locals give Al-Zaituna an average of four stars, seven Yelpers give it an average of three stars, and 75% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • The food is very tasty with proportions to match price. Try the chicken kebab and conclude your meal with a baklava. It would be safe to explore the other dishes as they are all very delicious. The staff provided excellent service and the peach hookah was very relaxing as it was sweet. – Ryan L., Yelp
  • Good food, good service, one of my favorites in El Paso. – Kelly S., Yahoo Local

Al-Zaituna

Plumes of aromatic smoke curl from the arms of colorful hookahs as Al-Zaituna’s chefs cook up moist yet crispy falafel and tender kebabs. Stuffed grape leaves and hummus satiate palates alongside gyro meats nestled into pitas that are baked daily, and sips of turkish coffee power up neural search engines.
