What You'll Get


The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, shawarma, and hummus growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's deal: for $9, you get $18 worth of Mediterranean fare and drinks at The Olive Tree in Hilliard. The Olive Tree is closed on Monday.

The friendly-family owners behind The Olive Tree whip up a diverse menu of fresh, authentic Mediterranean dishes. The tangy signature hummus ($4.50) tickles tongues either slathered alone atop a fresh, warm pita or surrounded by fava beans, garlic, lemon, and cilantro in the nutritious hummus ful ($7.50). The machmusa ($4.95), or sautéed eggplant, bursts with flavor and concealed fireworks, which plant-partial palates can pleasantly pair with the piquant tabouli salad ($4.50 small, $6.50 large). The spicy gyro’s ($10.95) thin lamb slices sizzle with a zesty house-made hot sauce, and the chicken shawarma ($9.95) struts around in a sultry blend of Middle Eastern spices, green peppers, and rhinestone bellbottoms. For a dish even more authentically Greek than Mexican American actor Anthony Quinn, face-plant into a plate of moussaka ($12.95) and chase it with a dessert of baklava ($2.95) or homemade rice pudding ($2.95). In accordance with Mediterranean restaurant laws, you can legally light any dish on fire so long as you shout "Opa!"

The Olive Tree's red-brick edifice welcomes noshers into a warm, relaxing ambience, where the attentive staff and owners patrol the dining floor by dancing in circles. Treat your mouth to a Santorini sunset without accidentally ingesting a lot of blue paint and white stucco with today's Groupon to The Olive Tree.

Dine-in only.
