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.
I read the recommendations on LA Weekly and decide to stop by with whole family. Big mistake! Because I'm from real doner kebap motherland Turkey. Such a terrible spicy test. My kids even couldn't bite. You couldn't even taste meat. Not worth to even try. Never ever go again.

We live in the area, and are always looking for new places to try out. So, when we saw Spitz in a small corner, hidden away behind some buganvelias, we knew we had to try it! I think we've tried everything on their menu, and my all time favorite is their chicken salad. It's full of yummie veggies like bell peppers, olives, cucumbers, tomoatoes, greens, red onions, grilled chicken and feta cheese. There's so much that you can't finish it in one sitting! The wraps are great too! The spicy feta is a treat. All in all, this is a healthy dining experience, with the exception of the sinfully delightful sweet potato fries. Yum!

I heard about the best gelato in the universe so we decided to drive all the way to this small fast food place to have a taste. The food looked pretty good on website so we decided to try it! The drive was long and the parking was hard to find,..you pretty much have to park on the street....and the place is small,..you order up front and sit outside next to the street.....BUT the food was delicious!!! It is the best kabob I have ever tasted, not too salty or unhealthy,..just the right amount and the sides were really good too..fried pita bread with hummus,...yum!!! After the meal,..we were pretty full,...but can't leave without tasting the best gelato in the universe,...got the dark chocolate and almond almaretto,...it was the best! unique and thick flavors. The service was good too,..people are very nice. I would definently recommend going if you live in the area or just to try sometime. I wish there was one near me!

Love it! Great Pita Chips and Hummus! The first wrap on the menu - I think its called a doner kabab or something - is just great. I've never had food like this before and I'm hooked. I recently moved about 10 miles east and I still drive back occasionally on the weekends.

I love it! It's just the right kind of food you need for the summer, just fresh and I can't get enough of the sweet potato fries! It leaves you satisfied. The only bad thing is the parking ,......it's so small. You have to park on the street and sometimes that street is so packed. I ended up at the sizzler's once.

Yesterday I was looking on Citysearch for a new lunch place to try and read these reviews about Spitz. It sounded tasty so I decided to try it out. The best way to sum up my experience is to say that I am going back there for lunch again today! I had the Classic sandwich with a side of pita strips. Both were absolutely amazing, and for all that plus a drink I spent less than $10! The sandwich has so much flavor! The pita strips are served warm, slightly crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, and lightly salted. The hummus that you dip them in is delicious as well. As soon as I left Spitz I called my sister to tell her she has to try it! There are only 2 parking spots plus a handicap spot so expect to park on the street. The service is very fast and the patio is pleasant. After only one visit they've made a loyal customer out of me!
