Hummus is no simple beast. Its Middle Eastern origins are shrouded in mystery, but some legends hold that the dip was the world's first prepared food. The bulk is mashed chickpeas, seasoned with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic. When the ingredients are blended poorly, the hummus can be runny and bitter, or worse, doughy and bland. But there's no doubt that the foodsmiths at Falafel King know the right recipe. Creamy and rich, their hummus blends perfectly with the flavor of pita, or falafel, or nearly anything else you'd care to dip in it. Add kalamata olives to an order of pita and hummus and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better lunch.

There is no comparison between falafel king and holy land. first of all, I eat at both restaurants, but i lean towards the falafel king side. Mainly becuase, 1) falafel king have lean meat, no rubbery stuff in the sandwcihes watsoever. 2) the service is excellent, and the buffet is wonderfully presented and there is always a new delicacy to be offered. 3) the deserts are off the chain! have you ever tried chocolate covered baklavas, with honey roasted pistachios before? if not, go to falafel king. salam, Arif mohamed.

I am a collage student who has been around the country and i think Jennifer has mistaken about the comment that she has written i think no restaurant in Minnesota can compete with Falafel King if you don't believe me head over there yourself and try it. (then judge)

Ah let me just mention a few things for you "Jennifer" (which i am guessing is the Holy Land owner). One you cant spell even if your mom was on a cliff. Two, Rachel Ray is the most generic name i have ever heard. And three, i got food poisoning from Hold Land or shall i say Holy Sh**. Falafel King, on the other hand, has great food. I enjoy everything the serve, and i have also tried Saffron middle eastern restaurant (delicious) and both serve amazing food. As for Holy Land, i asked for a refund due to the fact that the food tasted like it was a week old and i was told i couldn't have a refund because it wasn't a good enough reason. I strongly agree with the city pages nomination, BEST HUMMUS!
