After a few beers at Black Sheep Lodge I was feeling a bit peckish, and I really wanted, in my attempt to be somewhat diet-conscious while drunk, was some meat without too many carbs. My friend Tiffany suggested we go to Kebabalicious, so I thought I'd be going somewhere for a kebab, which would be perfect for my needs! So a part of me was disappointed when I realized it would be more aptly named "Shawarmatastic" or perhaps "Shawarming the Soul" as they only serve the wraps and not kebabs, but then another huge part of my brain interjected, "Oh, mmmyesyesmmgoodgoodgood." And now that I'm looking at the menu online, it seems that perhaps I could have chosen a salad, but I somehow do not remember noticing that as an option.
As it was, I got the "regular" sized (6 inches for $6.50, as opposed to the "large" at 12 inches at $8.25, which would be a great deal supposing you have someone to share it with, and Tiffany was only chaperoning my gluttony and not participating) Beef/Lamb Kebab (Shawarma).

If you take a look at the picture, you can see that the first sign of awesome food is present. They call it red on the menu, but I was excited to see that it was actually the holiest of sauce hues: orange. The spicy level was right on: not painful or overpowering but flavorful, leaving that pleasant after burn in your mouth that reminds you you've just eaten something awesome.
The wrap was soft and held up fairly sturdily, so that I didn't have too much mess in the car, without being so thick that I got carbed out and too full to enjoy the thing. Great balance guys! Now if you could just start offering meat and vegetable skewers (you know, kebabs) with the orange "spicy red sauce" for me to dip it in, I'll be even happier.
In case you or your friends aren't craving shawarma, this was in one of the circles of covered food wagons, with, as I recall at least 2 or 3 other options.
