Davod's

  • 4

I tried Davod's today at lunch. It's mostly a store, with lots of spices, canned/jarred goods, hookahs and some cookware, and a small refrigerated/frozen section. In the back is an order window and three 2-person tables.

The owners are friendly, and I thought the food was decent, but it didn't stand out in any way. With 4 paper-thin slices of beef & lamb 'loaf', I thought my gyro was a bit light on the meat. It was a little more expensive than Sarah's, Pars Deli, etc. A gyro, a piece of baklava and water came to $10.71 before any tip. I did like the grilled onions in the Gyro.

  1. I'm still partial to Mediterranean Chef if i want a gyro north of downtown. They will saute your gyro meat in sriracha sauce if you ask for it spicy.

    Phonecia is always reliable when i remember to go.

    Halal Bros over by campus is pretty tasty too. a little different presentation wise but same flavor profile.

      My choice in this area (Anderson Mill & 183) would be Shandeez Grill.

        I'm not ready to write the place off yet-- I'll go back sometime and try a kabob and the hummus (they were out of hummus today) and see what a mediterranean samosa is like. Maybe there is a sweet spot in there somewhere. I look forward to seeing what other folks think as they try it as well.
