If you're looking for something other than fast food or Italian for dinner, Olive Mountain's filling and tasty Middle Eastern food might be the answer. The restaurant itself is well decorated and has large windows facing onto the street. You'll usually find music playing softly in the background, making it feel somewhat calm and peaceful. Although the restaurant is elegant, it still maintains a casual atmosphere where college students are welcome.
The food is very good and authentically Middle Eastern. Many of the waiters and the owner are Middle Easterners and are willing to help diners choose what to order. The owner is very friendly and is known for offering customers other dinners if they're not satisfied with what they ordered (at no charge, of course).
The food is moderately priced and the servings are large. Their lunch specials are great, especially considering how much food you get for your money.
Average cost: $10-$20
