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.

This was our first time here but it was delicious! We got there about a half hour before closing and everything was still stocked and the hot items were hot. The people here we're so nice. We would happily go back!
Lots of flavor. Imaginative selections. Reasonable prices for large portions. Staff really hustle to get it done fast.
Love Yafo. I get lunch from here sometimes twice a week. Each meal is two servings in my opinion so great for left overs. I typically get the make your own bowl. There are so many options for toppings and I always get extra bread. The cookies are great too.
First visit and not disappointed at all. Ordered a bowl to experience as many different offerings as possible! Everything was delicious, will be back for sure!
My favorite south side lunch by far. Fresh, flavorful and fast. The lamb and falafel are delicious. Most items are gluten free.
