Ate here on the suggestions of other Yelp reviewers. Was not disappointed.
Had a whole wheat pita with chicken schwarma and hummus. Filled it with amazing fresh ingredients and got a side of sweet potato fries. Everything was excellent.
In fact, it was so good I went back the next day for lunch and tried the beef schwarma. Also excellent.
Can't beat it for the price.
This place was great as far as food goes. It tasted very good and it was reasonably priced. The location was convenient too! So I really liked that.
What was actually pretty cool was the wide variety of free toping you can add to your food. It makes for a different meal every time.
Another thing I really liked was the look and feel of the place. It had nice décor and it felt very unique and homey. The only complain I have about this place was the staff. They weren't very friendly and they were talking with each other the entire time. So that's the only downfall, in my opinion.
Price is extremely reasonable and food is fresh! I received my chicken schwarma on a pita with hummus piping hot, and was left to add whatever accompaniments and sauces I wanted from the salad bar. This included broccoli and cauliflower, tomatoes and red onion, tabbouleh, olives, chickpea salad, beet salad, and other Mediterranean sides. I was giddy with excitement at the prospect of not being limited to only a few toppings. After a long stretch of walking in the city, Maoz Falafel definitely hit the spot and satisfied my need for food in my belly
This is actually one of my favorite spots to have a healthy lunch in the entire city. Price-wise it cannot be beat, and as long as you take full advantage of the Maoz topping's bar you will NOT leave hungry. This specific Maoz location is different than others due to the fact that this spot isn't vegetarian. There are still the ordinary vegetarian options that the other Maoz spots offer, but there are also things for us meat eaters to enjoy.
My first visit to Maoz I got a mixed greens bowl with beef shawarma, avocado, and an egg as my add-ons. This made my entire order about $12? Second time around was about the same price, except that time I got chicken shawarma, avocado, and babaganoush on top of my salad bowl. If you kept it simple, a bowl or pita with a protein, you wouldn't spend more than $10. I personally like putting more, so I don't mind dishing out a few more bucks, especially since every add-on is unbelievably fresh. I will say that the chicken shawarma is better than the beef, but the beef is still good. And they're made fresh from the kitchen! Just expect a bit of a wait if you do order a protein (5-10 minutes in my experience).
Now, I can eat a LOT, so I was surprised when these veggie based meals satisfied me. Of course, that had a lot to do with the toppings bar. There's something for everyone. And you can pile on as much as you can fit. My personal go-to's are olives, chickpea salad, beet salad, and the tabouli salad. They also have a wide range of sauces. My favorites being their cilantro sauce (on the bar) and garlic sauce (in a bottle). I've tried their tahini, but it's not the best.
The ordering system might be a bit confusing initially, but once you've got the hang of it nothing will be easier. Walk over to the register, order your rice/hummus/salad/pita with or without proteins/add-ons, then stand at the front of the toppings bar and wait for them to hand your order to you.
The only negative thing I could say about Maoz isn't even really something I can speak about personally. When my boyfriend came with me he ordered a pita with beef shawarma and fries. Now, this isn't something I've ever had, but he told me this is a pretty normal order in falafel/shawarma spots. Again. I dunno. But he said it wasn't good? But he wasn't very specific. He didn't tell me if it was the pita, or the fries, or the shawarma. He also hadn't taken my advice to fill up at the toppings bar, so his pita looked pretty lackluster (and unhealthy) compared to my salad. He wound up not loving Maoz, but his opinion has not changed mine and I've been back plenty of times since.
I'm very surprised that this place isn't busier. It's cheap, fresh, and filling. A better alternative than Chop't or other salad bars in the area. I just wish there was more seating space, I've found myself ordering my food to-go and eating elsewhere.
