Located in a random strip of businesses outside of downtown Glendale, Skaf’s admittedly doesn’t have much of an atmosphere. But that doesn’t matter when it’s your lunch hour and all you want is garlic falafel and some of the best chicken shawarma you’ll find anywhere. Even though Skaf’s is a sit-down restaurant, service is quick and efficient, and a meal in under 30 minutes is very doable here.
