The Fertile Crescent shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by the Tigris and Euphrates to dive for the delicious falafel and hummus growing beneath the crystal waters. Travel to this legendary culinary cradle with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of Middle Eastern and American cuisine at Castle Restaurant, located across from University of Memphis's Park Avenue campus.
Castle Restaurant's tiny, bustling restaurant space is full to the brim with delicious aromas from its menu of classic Middle Eastern and American dishes. Entrees such as the eight-piece falafel plate ($6.99) neatly sate chickpea cravings, while beef shish kebab and chicken shish taouk platters ($8.99) toss meaty protein into the savory mix (each entree is served with a choice of rice and salad or bread and salad). Or take an aquaplane to the States with a fish sandwich ($3.99) or Philly steak sandwich ($4.69). Side orders of hummus ($2.99) and eggplant dip ($2.49) are always ready for the dipping, while lentil soup ($1.99) and tzatziki (with yogurt and cucumbers; $1.99) are available for warming up and cooling down respectively. Fill a cavernous stomach with falafel, hummus, and hamburgers, and celebrate the delicious side effects of globalization.

- The hummus is creamy and lemony, rich with garlic and tahini, yet none of the flavors overwhelms the simplicity of the beans and olive oil. – Jennifer Biggs, GoMemphis.com
- This place was awesome... can't believe I had never heard of it! I had the gyro sandwich which was loaded with meat.. it was out of this world! – John, Urbanspoon
- I tried the veggie deal. It was fantastic. I especially liked the hummus and the tabouleh salad. I'm not generally a big fan of falafel, but I even enjoyed that. – adancer, Urbanspoon
