Cheap, delicious, amazing.
I could live off of Saad's Chicken Shish Tawook sandwiches. Didn't even know I'd like Halal food until this place -- couldn't say enough good things. It's more of a take-out place than a restaurant, but there's tables so you can eat in too. Also American fast food options, but stick to the Halal! -- it can't be beat. Also, Saad is the nicest, most hilarious guy ever.
Very good food for a great price and friendly service.
Saad's is a neighborhood staple of West Philly and is considered by many to be the best Halal restaurant in the city. I'd have a hard time arguing the point because the food is exceptional, the service is top notch, and the prices are cheap. I haven't sampled the widest variety of their menu but the Falafel, Hummos and Baba Ghanouj are all great. The ingredients taste fresh and when the menu boasts "Saad makes it all from scratch" it's easy to believe. I also enjoy the selection of imported fruit flavored sodas. They're open late and Saad is always a class act while taking your order. Most of all I have to stress that this is very reasonably priced food, with your average sandwhich around $4. If you're looking for Middle Eastern food and haven't tried Saad's, I strongly recommend paying a visit the next chance you have.
