The other day we ate the hell out of a bunch of food from Mediterra Grill (2608 Erwin Rd, Suite 136). I mean seriously ate the hell out of it. Admittedly we were starving, but it is safe to say that the food there is objectively very good. It is great to see better lunch options cropping up around Duke’s west campus.
In fact, we liked it so much that we had them do some emergency catering for a small group later that night.
Here are the highlights. The chicken and beef kebobs (~$10) with rice are delicious. Simple presentation, but wonderful deep flavors and very moist. The kabbi with yogurt dressing ($7.50) wasn’t dry (it has been at other places when I have tried it in the past), and tasted great.
The gyro ($5) is probably the best in the Triangle that I have tried. I am not normally a fan of chicken sandwiches, but the chicken kebob sandwich ($5) was actually really enjoyable — I would definitely go back for it if I wanted a lighter meal.
You can also get a sample platter for $5.95 with dips, salads, and vegetables. We tried the hummus (really good), grilled veggies (good flavor but they were cold by the time we ate), and greek salad (as expected).
Definitely check this place out. They have a bunch of other stuff on the menu that I am excited to try.
