Bucharest Grill
I've wanted to experience the phenomenon known as "Bucharest Grill" for a long time now, and finally got down there late Saturday night on our way home from the Wayne County Lightfest in Westland. We couldn't have chosen a worse night to battle the crowds and traffic along the Woodward / Park St. / Cass Ave. corridor, as Noel Night was just finishing up, Wayne State held commencements and there were events at both the Fox and State Theatre (is it even called the State Theatre anymore?)...but, we were passing through so we decided to see what the fuss was all about.We called in our order and found a parking spot to wait. Bucharest Grill is located inside the Park Bar, so if we didn't have two toddlers with us it would have been perfect to wait while enjoying a cocktail or eating there but with kids in tow that wasn't a possibility.Despite how busy they were, the order was placed and ready in 20 minutes. My wife and I ordered two falafel shwarma's, a small humus, and fries. We had another 15 minutes drive home, so we ate the fries on the drive and they were amazing! They tasted like a thicker version of McDonald's fries, and in my opinion, McDonald's has the very best fries around (don't laugh).We arrived home and dug right into our shwarma. Although not still hot (remember we had a 15 minute drive home), the falafel was super crunchy (but not hard) and was generously topped with tomato, onion, garlic sauce and green pepper. All I can say is "wow," it was amazing! The humus was so-so, but I consider myself a humus snob, being 50% Lebanese. We did put the humus inside the shwarma, where it tasted better than on it's own. I would most definitely go back, as the service was friendly, the price super-reasonable for what was given and the food excellent. They lost a star in my review only because when we double-checked our order it was someone else's. Minor inconvenience to have to go back inside and fight the crowd again but everything was fine.I can see why everyone raves about Bucharest Grill. Definitely a must-try!

The schwarma was definitly worth the trip from California. Under going a remodel so you stand shoulder to shoulder while ordering and waiting for your food.
