Aladdin's Eateries feature distinctive rolled pita sandwiches, pita pockets, and "Pitza's" made with homemade pita bread. The pita bread contains no fat, cholesterol, or oil. No sulfites or preservatives are used. Only fresh vegetables and meats appear on the menus. Over seventy menu items are Vegetarian or Vegan. Imported olive oil is used for both homemade salad dressings and saute's. Aladdin's Eatery offers twelve varieties of natural herb teas without artificial flavoring or preservatives. Juices are squeezed to order to ensure maximum freshness. In addition to the best tasting Lebanese/American food, Aladdin's Eateries also offer the unique "Smoothies," a tantalizing blend of fresh fruits and juices.Personally I'm quite fond of the fattoush, stuffed grape leaves and their foole m damas.
