Bok Bok spreads its fresh Mediterranean fare across the Vegas Valley

Bok Bok Mediterranean, a fast-casual restaurant with a handful of locations in town, features recipes passed down through generations in owner Silva Chamanian’s family.

The menu ranges from sandwiches to platters to salads, with plenty of sides to create your own meze, including hummus, grape leaves and mutabbal—an eggplant, tahini and garlic dip that should be slathered on everything. For proteins, there’s shawarma and kebobs (beef and chicken), along with a made-to-order falafel.

Bok Bok also does rotisserie chicken exceptionally well. The free-range bird can be seen turning in the oven as it browns to perfection. Served with toom—a Lebanese dip made of emulsified garlic with a bit of lemon and oil—it’s the perfect foil to the rice and fattoush, chopped salad with watercress, green onion, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, pita chips and house dressing.

Everything on the menu is made from scratch daily in each location. Notably, Bok Bok offers a $21 family meal—a whole chicken with two large sides, pita, pickles and toom. Order it through the end of the October, and Bok Bok will throw in an extra whole chicken. That’s a deal worth clucking about.
