If you ever find yourself in an area of Takoma Park known as Old Town, and are in need of a good brew and a bite to eat than look no further than 7006 Carroll Ave. For nearly 40 years the Hishmeh brothers have been providing quality Middle Eastern food and local family business in Takoma Park. They are a dedicated part of the local community, and just a few years ago added The Olive Lounge Bar and Grill to their establishment. If you enter through the front of the building you'll be entering a modest, but well decorated middle eastern restaurant/cafe. The bar is located in the back of the restaurant, and can be entered from either end of the building. The bar itself resembles an american bar with finesse and etiquette of Middle Eastern design and culture. Lighting is a bit dark in the evenings but the all in all the aesthetic is very well constructed and quite pleasing The wait staff are friendly welcoming and knowledgable about what they serve. Their beer selection is quite good all in all it isn't utterly amazing, but they do have several beers to choose from ranging from good to excellent. They usually carry something around 60 brews all in all, however that is a rough number and subject to change. If your looking for cocktails or hard liquor you won't be able to find any here the bar carries beer and wine alone. Their prices are quite reasonable and happy hour prices are even better. As it has been since 1973 their food is wonderful and very cheap. Their menu has a broad selection of both middle eastern and american food, so if your hungry don't be modest grab a bite it will be well worth it. All in all its a very nice establishment that is well worth coming back to.
