Another great find in Eagle Rock. Every so often I need the good "greek" sandwhich. The kind where they slice the meat off the spit righ in front of you. Spitz is my favorite. Not the most authentic, but more than compansate with quality. Variety of great sides, like sweet potatoe fries, olives, etc. all for about a buck. Great Gelato bar if you have room....

I finally broke down and decided to try to find parking by this lil interesting looking shack. I was met by a very friendly gentleman at the counter who advised me to check out the menu if this was my first time. I decided for the classic focaccia doner sandwich with sweet potato fries as a side. The meal comes in a small basket and is just the right size for lunch. The sandwich was amazing! The meats, the cucumbers, the tomatoes all tasted sooo fresh! The bread was light, tasty and just the right size to not overwhelm the other flavors. I was very impressed by the taste of the sauce they use. It's quite delicious yet not over the top, allowing all the flavors to come through. The service was great, especially if you consider it's set up like a lil burger shack. I am definately going back to try some more specialties!

I just tried this place for the first time and I will definitely become a regular! I ordered the Falafelite, wow! It was so full of favor! Some vegetarian options at other places can be bland but wow everything at Spitz was exploding with flavor! If you like your food well seasoned then you'll love this place! The sweet potato fries were really good too! I ordered half fries, half sweet potato fries, which was a perfect combo of sweet and salty! Oh, and get a side of the greek yogurt sauce to dip your wrap and fries in!

So, the whole ""european"" spin on this place intrigued me so I had to check it out, It was ok. Nothing spectacular. What I found out later was that Doner is actually glorified Shawerma (which is middle eastern) except Doner is hyper processed meat with less spices: so, you're getting less quality in the meat & less flavor (except for the flavor provided by filler & fat which is processed into the meat.) After I found this out, I decided the one time I had Doner would be the last: now I'm sticking to Shawerma instead: it's not processed, it has fantastic spices, and it doesn't pretend it's ""european."" (what about Turkey is european anyways!? the roots are seljuk/mongol & the culture is just as closed as any other muslim culture!)

If you have ever been to Germany, tried Turkish doner kabobs and craved it when you came back to the United States, this place is for you! It is very close to the experience I remember in Germany. Delicious! It is not quite as good as that first experience, but I still highly recommend it. Even if you haven't had doners before, it is worth trying something new. You won't be disappointed.

We have enjoyed sandwiches here before. The staff is always friendly and we found that the food is always fresh. The first falaful I had a year ago was alot better than the most recent but then everyone has a bad day once in a while in a restaurant. I will go back and will also try to compare it to Zancou Chicken falafuls.
