Dirt Cheap Eats 2008: Ravi Kabob II

These exceptional Arlington kebab houses offer the prospect, rare these days, of eating well while eating a lot—a whole lot. An order of the matchless kebabs—made with halal lamb, chicken, or beef, marinated for 18 hours, and cooked over a charcoal grill until the meat is gently charred—comes with either bread (baked to order) or rice and a salad ($8.50). It’s the same deal for the karahi, a marvelous, head-clearing stew of tomato, ginger, chilies, and hunks of lamb or chicken or a portion of lamb’s brains. Open daily for lunch and dinner.
