For more than 50 years, Falafel’s Drive-In has been a San Jose landmark. And while it’s neither a drive-in nor owned by a guy named Falafel, the mid-century fast-food joint is a local institution for a reason: falafel that is crispy on the outside, marbled with herbs and spices on the inside, and topped with a delicious housemade hot sauce. Better still, it all comes in a pita sandwich the size of your face for just $7. Grab a spot at a picnic table outside and don’t skip the fresh banana shake.
