King Souvlaki

These guys got it down pat! Quantity and quality at a great price! The menu at King Souvlaki has something for everyone, but…the platters…oh the platters, these are fit for a king (or queen)! Gyro or Souvlaki of your choice over fries or for the healthier option, over rice, served with salad, tzatziki dip and warm pita. Now I’m hungry! Platter it is!

Tamalli

With so many options of fast food and takeout nowadays, it’s good to know that amongst it all, there is Tamalli: a mother-daughter team making traditional homemade tamales to order. DM them on Instagram with your choices between the following tamales: Mole (brown sauce with chicken), Verde (green sauce with chicken), Dulce (sweet with raisins) or Rajas (red sauce with jalapeños). For vegetarian options, ask for cheese instead of chicken. Deliveries are done on the weekends ONLY between 8am-12pm. No minimum per order and no delivery fee!
