{Places}: Spitz SLC

As always, my review is honest, brutal, and straight up!

I've been to Spitz a few times. It's located in the middle of Main street and State Street right off of 300 South. First time was with a friend who absolutely loves it and claims that it is one of the best eateries in SLC. I got their special, the Street Car Doner. It was pretty good, but pretty messy. Every time I've been back since, I have gotten  either the Street Car or the Spicy Doner (pronounced: Duh-Ner). The last time I went with a co-worker, and I got the Spicy.

This is what it looks like:

I had them leave out the tomatoes and cucumbers, because I'm not a fan of either of them in wraps or sandwiches. As you can see, it's not your typical Kebab. I remember Gemma ate here once and came back claiming that it was NOT an authentic Kebab and when she moved to Finland this summer shared a picture of what a REAL Kebab:

as you can tell, she was not impressed.
I'm not gonna lie, that meat looks REALLY good. The one thing I will say is that while the wraps that they have at Spitz are very unique and colorful, the meat is not very good. It doesn't taste very fresh, and I'm not sure they use a vertical rotisserie to cook their meat which would probably contribute to that. I will say though, their fries were BOMB.COM:

These fries. The Streetcart fries. SO. Freaking. GOOD. From their Menu:

"Our famous fries topped with garlic aioli, feta, onion, green pepper, tomato, olives, pepperoncinis and chili sauce."

I don't think people understand what I mean when I say these fries are the BEST fries I have ever had in my life.

I also ordered a Falafel ball this time, because I can't resist Falafels, and I hadn't tried theirs before. It wasn't the BEST I've had, but was still pretty good. 

Over all, I give this place a 3 out of 5 stars, only because of the fact that it isn't authentic Mediterranean Kebab. The fries made up for it though. Price also brings rating down, those fries were 7 bucks! I will say that if you're looking for an amazing authentic Mediterranean place, head over to O'Falafel Etc. They have some amazing authentic food from Israel and other countries. I've been there twice now, and I'm a huge fan. 

Until next time!
