This fast-casual restaurant is focused on creating Mediterranean dishes with bold Middle Eastern flavors. The concept is modeled after Middle Eastern street food and serves vegetarian and vegan-friendly menu options so there are options for all palates and preferences. Because of Yafo, Charlotteans now know how to correctly pronounce shawarma.
Cuisine Type: Mediterranean
Ambience: Casual Dining
YAFO offers truly authentic Mediterranean street food. While sometimes there can be a really long wait, it is certainly worth it. Some say the food is quite expensive, however, it comes in such a large serving it can be split with two people or saved for later. Pros: - Great food - Large Servings - Friendly Staff Cons: - Sometimes a long wait - Expensive Overall this is a great place to go out and have lunch. I would say going is definitely worth it, even with a longer wait. I positively recommend you try YAFO if you have never tried it.
Great experience and fantastic food!! As the one who chooses and fetches the lunches when we work in town this place made that task seamless. I came in with a written list of 11 orders. They told me to come back in 25 minutes. They had written my coworkers names on their food containers and everything was well packaged and all the orders were correct. Will be back when in town again!!
This place is beyond tasty. Went on a Saturday afternoon. The place was busy, but we didn't have to wait and found a seat immediately. Our biggest issue was finding a place to park. I'd love to see them open another location on the north side of town.
Line moved a little slow. But food was good. Good choices. Nice people. Sufficient tables both inside and outside.
Great fast casual restaurant with a mix of not-so-common dishes. It's a rotisserie chicken place with a really heavy Mediterranean influence. My personal favorite is the Greek chicken with brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Minus 1 star because the staff seems to always have trouble keeping track of who orders what in their little assembly line.
