As I waited for a dining companion, I was able to see a bustle of activity in front of the storefront as the sun set. Women in headscarves helped each other with directions, went inside to buy fresh ingredients and groceries. The meat on the spits near the window is fairly sparse by 7pm, but there was still enough for our order, thankfully.
The thing that jumps out at me immediately about this place is the fact that they are serving up high-quality sandwiches for $3.50 a pop. I hope this is not just an introductory price at opening, but am hopeful they will last at least a while as their menus and custom signage has these prices fixed.
The chicken schwarma ($3.50, below) is my usual go-to at a Lebanese takeout, as I am always excited to try a place's homemade garlic sauce. The sandwich here is not as loaded as some, but an excellent value for the price. The meat is deliciously spiced and the sauce top notch.
