You can just have meat and salad here. No desserts.
It's awesome. It's behind the Zeugma Mosaic Museum. Plan to have your lunch here when you come to visit the Mozaic Museum.

before eating at halil usta, i thought i wasn't a meat-lover, but obviously i was wrong. dont be fooled by its location and decoration, just go inside and order anything that's on the menu. make sure to go there before 2 pm as they may run out of meat. also this will give you some time before you order your second portion!

right after or before eating here, you can visit Zeugma Mosaic Museum since it's very close.

don't leave Gaziantep without eating at halil usta!

I went to Halil Usta 2 times; first time in old restaurant & secondly to Metro branch. Both prepared same good kebap. The salad is exceptional, küşleme is the best kebap in turkey.

I ate the most delicious kebabs of my life
in this small but also crowded place. I think that this place is the BEST kebab restaurant in gaziantep. But it's so hard to find it. But nevermind!

Only four choices, cubes or ground, each spicy or not, but if you are a fan of lamb kebab, this is a place you mustn't miss! Tender, flavorful, just perfect, served with a sort of salad, which is primarily chopped tomatoes and finely chopped lettuce, served up with a vinegar/oil/tomato sauce, oregano, ground hot peppers, & probably something else I can't identify. What ever is in it, I have never come across a "salad" so good. It's regularly served with kebabs, but not like this! The servers are very friendly, the owner emits a friendship & warmth that obviously is transmitted to his food. A "hole-in-the-wall" place that's only open Mon-Sat, and closes at 17:00. Almost all tables sit 6-8 persons, so unless you are many, you'll probably sit with others, which can be a pleasure. Because of work, I can only go on Sat, and it's almost always chock full of people, even though I go late (after 14:30). I am told this place is famous all over Turkey. After eating here several times I understand why. Go, and enjoy!
