I read about this place online under great eats for under &10 and I was not disappointed. I ordered the Doner Box with mixed meat (shaved lamb and chicken), saffron rice, veggies, and a garlic yogurt sauce. The serving size was plentiful and the taste...More

This is a smallish chain. Great food and I visit everytime I am in San Diego. If you have never tried Iskender, you should. Add the garlic sauce and hot sauce. It is yummy and beyond your normal kebab experience.

Great lunch. Clean, fast and fresh. Ate here two days in a row and enjoyed both meals. Falafel was not greasy, but nice and crisp. They had a regular and spicy humus, and both were good. Will go back when in town
