Dirt Cheap Eats 2009: Ravi Kabob House

These three kebab houses prove what fast food at its best can do: nurture and sustain a local population with authentic cooking.

Owners Mohammad Afzal and Abdul Alnoor are hands-on, and their skewered meats ($8.99 to $13.99), baked-to-order breads, and stews are superb. Also try the shareable karahis ($19.99), hunks of grilled meat doused in a heady sauce of tomatoes, chilies, ginger, and garlic and served in a hammered-metal wok.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
