Cheap Eats 2010: Afghan Famous Kabob

100 places that offer great food at low prices.

Why go: The flavors ring true, and the grill is tended with care. The bulanee—a clay-oven-baked turnover stuffed with leeks and scallion and served with a dip of yogurt—and crispy, three-cornered sambosas show a mastery of pastry, while rice (an afterthought at many kebab houses) is seasoned and delicately steamed.

What to get: Long-marinated, slow-grilled bone-in chicken kebab; spicy, juicy lamb chops; bulanee; sambosas; seasoned rice.

Best for: A distinctive carryout lunch or dinner for residents of Gainesville and Manassas; for everyone else, a restorative lunch or dinner on the way to or from Charlottesville.

Insider tip: Unless you’re ravenous, consider sharing an order of kebabs and rounding out your meal with the savory pastries and an extra order of rice.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
