Trenton Kebab House 226 E. State St. (609-278-0037)
Trenton Kebab House is a great place to stop when you’re feeling the need for high quality fresh Mediterranean food. They have a great menu that fits everyone’s budget. My favorite is the Chicken Adana Kebab Sandwich, I love the Lentil Soup that is served with some pita. When I feel like going meatless I get the homemade Humus and an order of the Cheese Rolls (Sigara Boregi) they are hunks of feta and herbs rolled in phyllo dough then pan fried! Outrageously good. They have a great menu you should take your time and enjoy it all. If your in a rush don’t order a kebab as its always cooked fresh, fresh takes longer! It’s a great idea to beat the noon rush or come after 1pm. They are always serving it up fresh. They are open late which is nice if you want to pick up a platter to bring home for dinner. They offer delivery service. They have a nice selection of soft drinks and Arizona Iced Tea and Snapple (my favorites). Don’t miss out on the desserts! If you want they can do some catering if your having a business meeting, it sure beats the local pizza. i think the service is much better now then when they opened. They have a full staff working the lunch rush, they take credit cards ( rare in Trenton). You can BYOB if you feel the need. It does get very busy on nice days and generally at lunch.
