Parking can be tough to come by at this smallish Eagle Rock sandwich shop, which specializes in Americanized versions of the popular döner kebab. So named because of the rotating vertical spit that holds its cooked meat, Spitz is the result of two friends who fell in love with the ubiquitous European snack food, but couldn’t find it anywhere in America. The sandwiches – mostly layered with roasted slices of beef and lamb, though chicken is also available – come topped with a variety of fresh ingredients and a tangy white cucumber sauce. Vegan and vegetarian items are available, while regulars opt for the messy street cart fries, topped with garlic aïoli, feta, onion, green pepper, tomato, olives, pepperoncinis and chili sauce. The tight, colorful dining area holds only a few wooden tables, making takeout a popular option.
