Middle Eastern Restaurant
$
“Good for: A cheap dinner with a fun and energetic atmosphere Why we love it: This is a family run Turkish joint that's been going for decades now. It’s pretty low-key (you’ll notice the back patio is on a slightly awkward slant) but the food is great, it’s well priced, the staff are delightful, and it always makes for a fun dinner on any night from Wednesday through Saturday (the other nights are more subdued). The whole restaurant will break into song when a birthday cake comes out which is delightful. Recommendations: Call ahead! It’s a tough one to get a table at otherwise. We always prefer sitting outside. This place is cash only, and BYO. It’s also pretty loud - bring your outside voice”
