Quality food, delicious and fresh!

I’ve eaten at this restaurant 6+ times. Nearby restaurants are mostly bars or pizza shops so this is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. I love the sandwiches which are large and delicious. The owners are generous and care about your experience. Sometimes they give free dessert with dinner. They are eager to serve high quality food…. HIGHLY recommend!

Gyro

Absolutely the best Gyro I’ve ever had. Ultra fresh toppings and plenty of meat. Its also put in falafel shell which I like better than the original gyro shell.

great food

Unfortunately the name of the restaurant doesn’t really tell you what type of food they have. It’s kind of a generic name, but the food is amazing! It is a Mediterranean Style restaurant with some American style food too. I went here with my family and we loved it. My kids are really picky eaters so having the American food also on the menu made this place enjoyable for everyone. They also have take out or delivery. The service was great too! I highly recommend it.

A fantastic find in Carrick/Brentwood

When this place opened sometime in mid 2013 I had no idea it was there. When I saw the store front I had no idea what was going on inside and then I asked some locals – everyone who talked about it said that it was very impressive middle eastern food.

So when I finally went – I wasn’t sure if it was just overblown stories or what. I started with the gyro wrap and because I was intrigued that they also served wings, I got those too.

The gyro was enormous and delicious! The wings reminded me of the ‘broasted’ style that you can only get in a few places in Pittsburgh now days (Chicken Derby, George Aikens, Frisch’s) and they were large and excellent! I want them now just thinking about it.

When I returned with my wife I tried the shawarma wrap. Holy wow! The wrap is stuffed with everything good in the universe. They make their own pickles that just make the sandwich yum! Next the wife and I ordered a pizza – their regular cheese is like extra cheese from most places, and the sauce is a spicy, not sweet affair. I would say that the pizza itself is better than most places in the area who deliver.

Today I got the shish tawook (wow!), and my wife the falafel and it was great to see her face light up with pure joy – seriously – she loved it more than any falafel she has ever had.

What I’m saying is – great food – all around!

The place is run by a couple – the husband cooks, the wife serves all other roles in the evenings. She’s very friendly and he knows what hospitality is. Because my kabob was going to take a little longer than other meals, he brought out a place of hummus and baba, for free, and when my wifes meal was ready before mine, he plated a falafel ball for me, again without charge, just being proud of his food and a great host.

It is very clean inside, the bathrooms are spotless, there is usually parking available on the street, and a parking lot very close by and you should try this place out. Help another great local business become a stable member of our business community.

shawarma wrap

There is another place in castle shannon that people say has the best shawarma, and it doesn’t hold a torch to what Family Restaurant will give you – either in price or taste.
