Finding restaurants in Turks and Caicos is easy…I mean…the island has some great places to eat. A friend of ours who lives on the island suggested Turks Kebab to us a couple of years ago. However, if I am being honest we drove by and were like…nah. The curb appeal is not great. Turks Kebab is this crabby looking shack type building.
As most of you know by now, we have our favorite places to eat that we go to over and over again. But, on a recent trip, we decided we would venture out more. We always say that but never really stick to. However, this trip, we stuck to what we said and ventured out and tried some new places.
We went to Turks Kebab for lunch one day. The first impression (of the outside) of this place is pretty poor. It really is a crabby looking building. It is right on the highway on the left towards the Graceway Gourmet. Once we parked and walked in (actually its all outside), we realized quickly that this was a hot spot for locals and visitors for that matter.
It is a Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant. Their menu is pretty large. Their big thing is lamb. As a matter of fact when you walk into the restaurant they are cooking lamb right there for you to see. Seeing this kind of turned my stomach if I am being completely honest. I am not a lamb eater and this kind of looked gross.
What to Order?
Finding something on the menu was easy for me. I love Greek salads so I knew right away that is what I wanted. My husband ordered the lamb gyro – which was highly suggested. While on the island, I always drink tap water, however, here I did bottled water. I guess I just felt better doing this. I’m sure tap would have been fine but I noticed everyone there drinking bottled water and/or a can drink so I stuck with bottled water.
Our food came out quickly and it was good. My salad was not like over the top…but I mean…there are only so many ways to do a Greek salad. I would order order it again. My husband liked his gyro as well.
The prices are not as bad as some places on the island. There is nothing on the menu over $15 which is good for Turks and Caicos. My salad was $11.50 and my husband’s gyro was $10. We spent $30 on lunch by the time we ate and got drinks.
There are few places on the island where you can go and eat lunch and spend less that $25 or $30. I will say, however, depending on what you order here, you could split and save some money.
Would I go Again?
I would definitely visit Turks Kebab again for lunch. This is not the type of place we would look for in a dinner on the island…but definitely lunch. It is one of the most “local” spots you can get while on the island. It is also so close to everything and easy to drive to and/or walk to depending on where you are staying.
Often times you hear people say…the crappiest looking little places have some of the best food. So, if you are looking for a very casual lunch on the island then I will say give it a try.
