Olmsted Falls Sunoco Gas Station Hummus

Hummus is tasty and healthy, but it doesn't normally create a buzz in the foodie world. That is until some folks discovered a average looking Sunoco gas station in Olmsted Falls that happens to have a delicious surprise inside. A regular looking gas station on the outside. An amazing hummus purveyor on the inside. This is not your average gas station!
Head to the back of the store and you'll see a deli-type case with your typical lunch meats and cheeses. But the star of the show is the little containers on the top shelf.
The hummus is homemade by the owner's Mom aka MamaMary and you can really taste the love that she puts into every batch. The freshness and texture can't be beat. They offer really interesting flavors that will change your opinions of this Mediterranean treat.

Pomegranate, dill pickle, jalapeño and kalamata are my favorites. A really delicious baba ganoush is also available sometimes. But whatever flavors you choose, make sure you get the hot pita that is dusted with za'tar seasoning.
While homemade hummus is definitely the star of the show, they also make delicious sandwiches and gyros.
We decided to try the Philly Steak Sandwich and a gyro. The Philly Steak was HUGE and could easily be shared. The gyro was demolished before a photo could be taken. It was also very big and tasty.
I love stuffed grape leaves so I had to try some of those too. They were vegetarian, fresh and a great buy. My only regret was not getting more.
I also noticed some mujadara in the case and decided to try that too. It was good, but nothing special. I really missed the onions on top.
Pro Tip: If you need to bring something to a party, grab and assortment of hummus and pita. You will definitely be asked back.
Even if you aren't someone who normally gets prepared food at a gas station, you definitely want to take the plunge and try this place. If you want to check to see what they have available before you make the trip, call ahead. Everything is fresh and they sell out regularly.
