If looking for Mid-Eastern Food at Great Prices, this is the best to eat. Not only is it casual, you can bring your own alcohol with NO corking fee. This is definitely a Plus for the many wine consumers. Sandwiches and Entree's prices remain the same for day and night dinning. The wait staff is very prompt and the kitchen can always handle the crowd without missing a beat. The cafe also offers side walk dinning under umbrellas. The Mid-Eastern Food is excellent and always served hot! Get there early on the weekend, (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) as there is always a crowd. The crowd is always a mixed group from all professions including college students.

I can't vouche for dining in, though I've done so once and it was a great experience. I can, however, testify to the fact that carry-out from Lebanon's Cafe is some of the best in New Orleans. The portions are enormous (I'm a 180 lb. fellow and one dinner taken home easily gives me two nights worth of meals), the quality and freshness is top-notch, and flavor-wise this is as good as Lebanese food gets. FYI - this is a BYO restaraunt and they encourage you to bring your own wine or beer to enjoy with some great food. Highly recommended!
Try it - you'll definitely like it!

In a city where you have to search far and wide to find a bad meal - this is by far what I crave when I'm out of town. Everything is above and beyond. Honestly, the hummus is smooth, creamy, and flavorful. DO NOT MISS the Sauteed Vegetable plate - aromatic rice covered by veggies (tomatos, squash, onions, eggplants, etc) sauteed in olive oil and covered with a generous helping of feta cheese and baked. I am a mean eater and when I have time to sit down and savor Lebanon's this is what I must order. My mother swears by the lamb chops but skip the side salad and opt for more rice or hummus.
I'm getting hunry just thinking about Lebanon's - pita bread here does come in whole wheat and far superior to Mona's.

I have enjoyed Lebanon Cafe for almost 4 years now. My girlfriend is the one who turned me onto it, and I am truly thankful for not only her, but some incredible food. I have nothing but the highest reguard for the owner and all of the workers. The food is always hot and fresh and always delicious. We live on the Northshore so whenever we come to town THIS is where we eat. This is the food of the gods as far as I am concerned. We have never had a bad experience and the staff are always kind. Thanks for a wonderful place to get our fix.

yuummmy! I lived in NOLA for four years and frequented Lebanon's every monday, and let me tell you, MONDAYS ROCKED MY WORLD! My boyfriend and I would bring a bottle of wine, split an entree (although you really don't have to everything is super reasonable), dine and walk to Bruno's on Maple for quarter pitchers. We had so much fun, and now that I'm away, mondays aint the same :) Try...well, anything, it's all fantastic and very authentic. DO NOT MISS THIS RESTAURANT!!!

My boyfriend and I discovered Lebanon's when we went on a late night gyro run...unfortunately, they are closed by 11, but when we got there early the next time...everything on the menu is wonderful, fresh and inexpensive. Make sure you get the lebanese tea and the summer salad to start, the tomatoes are always perfectly fresh and the mozzarella is amazing!!! One of the best, and most underpublicizes restaurants in town!!
