Penn Kabab: An Onward State Review
As I’ve previously mentioned, Penn Kebab is one of the best places to get some handcrafted fast food. Not only is the price relatively inexpensive (an average of $7 per entrée), you receive enough food to feed a family of three. Each wrap is also made to order with freshly made dough, so you can guarantee that your meal is extremely hot and delicious. You can be sure that the nice people at Penn Kebab will wrap up your gyro in a conveniently transportable foil and bag combo that is just perfect for stuffing your face between classes.
To be honest, I’m not sure how the people who live in the apartments above Penn Kebab don’t weigh 500 pounds, but I guess they possess some self-control.
Katie: Penn Kebab is a great place to go with someone who knows the menu. The chicken yufka with french fries, salad and vegetables was enough to feed me for the rest of the week. The chicken was so flavorful that I wasn’t sure if I would ever want to chicken anywhere else. The pita it was wrapped in was delicious and fresh as well. The meal was huge and worth the money you paid, but make sure you are hungry before you go.
Meghin: I’ve never tried Penn Kebab before today, and I really liked it! I ordered the chicken kebab box, which was sliced and spiced chicken, fries, and a delicious yogurt sauce. It came in one of those little take-out containers, you commonly see at Chinese restaurants. It was delicious. The fries were perfectly salted. Add the yogurt sauce, mixed with the chicken’s spices, and it made them even more delectable. The chicken was tender and juicy, bursting with flavor. The price was pretty modest as well, which I liked. I happily left Penn Kebab with a food baby, which is always the sign of a happy camper after a delicious meal.
Laurel: I was really excited about Penn Kebab, and let’s just say that I wasn’t disappointed. I’m a vegetarian, so I can’t attest to the amazingness of the meat; however, the veggie yufka was all I ever wanted wrapped in freshly grilled bread. Feta cheese, rice and beans, yogurt sauce, and I could go on. When I lived in Germany, I ate from the Kebab stands all the time, and I’m thrilled to finally find a place I can get my fix in college. OH! The baklava was also ridiculously good. It’s my favorite desert of all time, but the piece I got at Penn Kebab was dripping with honey and succulent pistachios. This was easily the best lunch I’ve had all semester.
Penn Kebab is located on 418 East College Avenue and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Also, be sure to check out their website.
