Delicious, fast, cheap. Arguably the best felafel in NYC! This place is a must-go for hungry peeps in the Village.
When I moved to New York City sometime around the first ice age, a Mamoun's falafel sandwich would run you $2. That had a nice ring to it, like the "Dollar Menu" or "Two Buck Chuck." I pray to god daily that "two-fifty-buck Chuck" never becomes a thing because the ship has already sailed on Mamoun's cheaper-than-a-load-of-laundry sandwich. I believe the current going rate is $3.50 but it's possible the proprietors will see fit to raise it again at any moment now that the flood gates are open. Still, anything less than $5 is a steal for what Mamoun's offers, which is a falafel pita stuffed with fresh vegetables (not the soggy, pickled kind you'll often come across) and as much hot sauce as you can bear, which odds are isn't that much cause the stuff is HOT. Like really hot. Don't use a lot, seriously you'll regret it. Whatever it costs you should tip generously because the food is still basically free by NYC standards.
