Spitz - Home of the Doner Kebab

Short review. Pretty good. Sort of like Greek food in sandwich form made by college kids from Occidental.

Great pita chips. Some may say greasy, but is that really a bad thing?
Sweet potato fries really good.
Regular fries with tzatziki and spicy sauce all over it, fantastic.
Falalfel, nice because it had flavor and was hot out of the fryer.
Hummus, not your typical Glendale hummus.
Gelato, haven't had bad gelato yet.

Horrible parking. Don't even bother trying to find parking in their 2 space lot. Go straight for street parking.
Price to volume ratio - approx $8 for sandwich and drink and side. I guess that's about right, but that's 8 Filet-o-Fishes on Friday.
Mint flavor gelato. Good flavor but odd grainy texture.

i second the rec on spitz... went there for lunch (w/ nuttinbutglutton, in fact) and found that the doner kabab lives up to the hype, indeed. also, surprisingly, the falafel sandwich was extra tasty -- i say surprisingly because i'm not normally a fan of falafel, finding most of it too dry, mealy, and just plain blah. but this falafel was not only freshly fried, but was sandwiched along w/ lots of grilled veggies and plenty of sauce which had the effect of gluing everything together in one messy, but tasty (and filling) sandwich. big thumbs up!
