Location Description:

It's nothing glamorous, but it's dirt cheap and tasty Turkish/Mediterranean grub, and you can't beat the people-watching, from trashy neighbors to spoiled private college kids. Menu favorites include chicken (tavuk doner) gyros and the veggie sandwich. The portions for the salads and sandwiches aren't huge, but at around $5 you can afford to swing a second helping if you're still hungry for more. Plan for takeout, since this tiny hole-in-the-wall only has a few tables, and seating any more than two can be a challenge.
