I’ve only eaten at the Grand River Ave location and have had carryout from the Okemos location. From what I’ve tasted, it is the second best Mediterranean food I’ve had in Lansing. The hummus is very good as is the lentil soup. The pita sandwiches are innovative – including cauliflower, eggplant, and even smeed. Some of the dishes are a bit odd, such as the lentils (which consists of a gigantic pile of lentils on a bed of rice) or the kibbee (a sort of ground beef pie).

Woody’s tends toward the “home cooked” style of food and offers an very casual “bar” atmosphere. While the service has been consistently slow for me, it’s a worthwhile establishment. It’s definitely not authentic (definitely has an American flare) and you won’t see many Arabs eating here, but it has enough inventiveness to make it stand out.
