    That hot sauce at Mamoun's is magical. Slather it on for a wholly messy, satisfying delight of a meal. Don't forget napkins for the spice-tickled wet nose. An East Village must!

    This place is nothing fancy, but it's one of the the best falafel sandwiches in town. Crisp nutty falafel jammed into a split pit, lathered with tahini and topped with the works. Hot sauce optional.

    As one of the oldest falafel joints in New York City, and one of the first in the United States, Mamoun’s is always a great choice for spicy, hearty Arab dishes for just a few bucks. Read more

    One of the greats at St. Mark’s! Good for late night eats! I remember when the falafel pita sandwiches were only $2.50! Get their namesake falafel sandwich with hot sauce!

    Well this is a New York late night eats legend. Hoboken Mamoun's is the best. Falafel is okay. I rather have taim falafel. Hot sauce though is where it's at! Buy a bottle!

    Classic spot in Alphabet City/East Village, known for classic Middle Eastern dishes. Great spot for tasty and affordable Falafel.

    So SOMETIMES you might catch a little fat in the Schwarma, but it's deliciously seasoned, the falafels are great, the hummus is perfect, it's mad cheap and open late? NYC CLASSIC

    Such great and tasty foods and desserts. This section of St Mark's has a ton of cheap food options but this place is probably the healthiest. I prefer a quick falafel sandwich.

    After all these years, a late night shawarma sandwich can still feel like the first time. Hot sauce adds fiery passion to the magic.

    Falafel and shawarma are both delicious. Haven't had anything else but they bat 1.000 and I say that as a connoisseur of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods

    A lunch time or late night classic. Chicken kabob sandwich is the go to order. Be very careful with the hot sauce as it can ruin your meal with the spice level.

    This place has changed significantly over the years but still one of my favorite falafel joints! Make sure you try the baklava as a desert option!

    The falafel is definitely the best in the neighborhood, and the shawarma is great too, but my favorite thing is actually the perfectly balanced mint lemonade.

    Still holds its own for a good, cheap meal. Prices have gone up since "back in the day" - I remember $2.50 falafel Sammies. Even at $5 they're a steal.

    Probably one of the cheapest (and most delicious) meals you'll ever get in NYC! Their falafel and shawarma sandwiches are great any time of day, but we recommend going for late-night munchies.

    Their namesake makes for a great late-night bite, but it's also a great lunch spot. Take any sandwich and make it a platter for only a couple more bucks!

    Cheap Eat: $3.50 for the falafel sandwich (or the falafel and hummus for $4 is good, too). And watch out for the hot sauce — one drop goes a long way. Read more

    Falafel plate is the way to go, but do yourself a favor and test out the hot sauce before smothering your food in it. Way hotter than most others.

    You can do a full course meal here. Start with a side of babaganoush, then falafel or shawarma sandwich, a baklava, and a cup of tea.

    Mamoun's has been featured in “1000 Places To See Before You Die.” Enjoy delish cheap eats with their $3 iconic Falafel Sandwich, which comes inside a pita bread with salad and tahini sauce.

    The Falafel plate is the way to go! only $5 and tons of food - the dressing is amazing. I usually like to top if off with some chalula though since i can't handle mamoun's hot sauce!!

    Do the meat sandwich mix - 1/2 meat 1/2 vegg just by adding .50 cents - perfect combo would be shawarma and baba ghanoush!

    Shawarma is the best at Mamoun's. Discovered this place with an Israeli friend living in nyc and loved it since then. Go easy on the hot sauce, crazy burning like hell.

    Falafel/hummus/baba ganoush sandwich. There is better falafel elsewhere in the city but go there for hot sauce. Be careful with it and buy a bottle to go!

    $2.50 for a sizable and delicious falafel pita? Try to find a better deal in NYC. Although the baklava impressed me even more.
