Cheap Eats 2010: Ravi Kabob House

100 places that offer great food at low prices.

Why go: Few restaurants achieve the consistency of these Pakistani kebab shops. The secret? The dedication of owners Muhammad Afzal and Abdul Alnoor, who keep a watchful eye over their clockwork-like kitchens.

What to get: Lamb kebab teeming with tangy, spicy savor; bone-in chicken tikka kebab; incendiary karahi, two-person stews infused with ginger and garlic; lahori choley, chickpeas braised in chili, cumin, and coriander (a recipe from the chef’s mother); mango lassi to cool the heat.

Best for: Meat lovers.

Insider tip: Takeout travels well, and the kebabs, if wrapped in foil and slowly heated, easily come back to life the next day.
