Like lots of other counter-service falafel spots, Ibby’s is a good option when you get home late from work, or when you realize that your dinner consisted of two mozzarella sticks and four vodka sodas. But Ibby’s isn’t just an inexpensive, filling takeout spot. The wraps and platters have combinations of spices and textures that wouldn’t be out of place at an expensive, sit-down meal. But we’re not complaining that the crispy falafel and nicely charred chicken shawarma both cost less than $8.
