Located in Lafayette and Carencro, Louisiana, Shawarma Guys is a nice little restaurant that has become a must-visit spot for locals and travelers alike. My wife and I stumbled upon this culinary haven during one of our road trips, and it has been our go-to stop every time we go to Lafayette without the kids. We go to Pizza Artista when we have the kids with us because they love pizza. I wrote this review to share our experiences with this great little eatery in Lafayette, Louisiana.
A Feast Fit for Royalty
One of the first things that struck us about Shawarma Guys was the generous portions of food they offer. Whether you have a hearty appetite or simply appreciate value for your money, this place has got you covered. I like to leave a restaurant full and feel like I got my money’s worth. The prices are more than reasonable for the amount of food you receive, making it an excellent choice for budget-conscious diners.
A Diverse Menu to Satisfy Every Craving
Shawarma Guys offers a diverse menu that caters to a wide range of tastes. From entrees to soup and salads, appetizers, wraps, and even kid’s plates, there’s something for everyone here. The chefs at Shawarma Guys take immense pride in crafting dishes that taste amazing and showcase the richness of Mediterranean flavors. My wife and I usually get the same plate each time we go, but it’s good to know they have other great items on the menu to try once I’m ready to deviate from my usual meal.
The appetizers at Shawarma Guys are a must-try for those looking to kick off their meal with a burst of flavor. The hummus is creamy and rich, a perfect blend of chickpeas, tahini, and aromatic spices. The fried eggplant, with its crispy exterior and tender interior, is a delightful surprise that will leave you craving more. We usually don’t get appetizers because the main dish is more than we can eat.
Wrap It Up with Wraps
If you’re in the mood for something more handheld, the wraps at Shawarma Guys are a treat. The Gyros Wrap is a savory masterpiece, brimming with perfectly seasoned meat and fresh vegetables, all wrapped snugly in warm, fluffy pita bread. The Chicken Shawarma Wrap is a tender and flavorful option that never disappoints. Wraps are great if you plan to take them for the road and don’t want to make a mess in your vehicle.
Hearty and Flavorful Entrees
Shawarma Guys offers an array of entrees for those seeking a heartier meal that will satisfy you utterly. The Gyro Plate is a meat lover’s dream, featuring tender slices of gyro meat served with rice and a side of creamy hummus. The Chicken Shawarma Plate is equally delectable, with succulent chicken and the same sides that make it a fulfilling meal. These plates feature large enough portions to share with a friend, and you will both have a full tummy. I’m a large man and rarely finish my plate, and that’s after sharing with my wife.
Sampler Plate: A Taste of Everythin
As for me, I can never resist ordering the Sampler Plate. It’s the best of both worlds, combining gyro and chicken shawarma served with fluffy rice and a dollop of their heavenly hummus. The flavors meld together harmoniously, creating a symphony of tastes that dance on the palate. The helpings are enormous, and your plate will be overbrimming with goodness.
Shawarma Guys includes our vegetarian friends, too. Their vegetarian menu offers flavorful options, ensuring everyone can enjoy a satisfying meal. I’ve never tried the vegetarian dishes, but they look delicious. I may try them on my next trip and will let you know.
Service with a Smile
Aside from the mouthwatering food, the warm and welcoming staff truly sets Shawarma Guys apart. You’re greeted with genuine smiles when you walk in, and the service is consistently attentive and friendly. This creates an atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. The man behind the counter always asks if we enjoyed our food, which makes a difference to me.
