yum -- but PLEASE FIRE cracked out crazy pita man – I live very close to this place and food/value-wise I give it 5 stars, two thumbs up, all that, its fabulous, which is why i care so much about one MAJOR issue. There is a guy there that NEEDS TO BE FIRED. He wears a green camo shirt, and I know he works Sundays and Monday. He is drunk and/or high as a kite all the time. A few weeks ago I went in there and placed a very simple order, two Turkish wraps and fries to go. He charged us, then proceeded to charge us again four minutes later, might I add a completely arbitrary amount. Then he got the order wrong, as well as the orders of the other people in the place.
Last weekend we went again, placing the same simple order with this guy, and repeating it to avoid misunderstanding. Two Turkish pitas and fries to go? Fail. You want one Turkish to stay? No, thank you anyways but please cancel the order as you seem to be unable to get it right. (Also I noticed his finger was very badly cut and bleeding down his hand under the rubber glove.) We walked out, he came out from behind the counter after us to flip us off and glare at us as we walked away. I beg you three monkeys, fire the cracked out crazy pita man, I love your food, but I fear for your establishment (and my life) if this he continues to work here.
Best Falafel anywhere – I eat a lot but a lot!! of falafel.The first time i came to "The Three Monkeys" i thought i won't find a falafel like mamoun's, but i decided to give it a shot. Delicious!!
