“Suburbian-Style Donner Kebabs at Euro prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Advertised as "Berlin Style" Donner Kebabs, Verts Kebap comes close, but misses the mark. An upscale sandwich bar, nice design, but it's about the food. The meats were a bit old on the schwarma - have not been shaved in a long time. Heat was off, and they were not rotating. Meat was served from a container in a steam table. Bread was manually sliced to make a pita pocket (more London style than a Berlin wrap). Beef/lamb mix was decent, if a bit overspiced. House sauce good (tangy yogurt/mint), and with chili sauce, a great combination. Fillings a bit disappointing - iceberg lettuce (!), dry red cabbage, tomatoes, red peppers. $7.95 for the basic Donner. Chips were most disappointing - shoestring American style, not the thick homestyle fries served everywhere in Europe :( And no mayo or chili sauce offered for chips. $3 for a small order. Looks like I will still be going to Al's Quick Stop when I want a kebab fix !

“Excellent spot for a quick bite to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

So I went opening day and I was not exactly happy with my experience.

I since have been back around 5 times & I absolutely love it! I have only gotten the Kebap with either the beef/lamb or the chicken & both are delicious. I always choose the house with the red spicy dressing. The meat is extremely flavorful and is extremely moist. They offer Coke products on tap & they have Coke Zero, so that is a big + for me.

The decor is minimalist, but functional for its purpose. They are also big on recycling, so that is a positive.

For a quick bite to eat, this is an excellent choice!
