The restaurant is small with five or six tables, and easily disregarded if you're not looking for it, but don't make that mistake. Son, the owner, serves döners (gyros) and they are worth every succulent bite.
I'll be honest, I visited Germany for three days many years ago, but I don't know much about the culture. What I do know is Son serves the freshest food in Statesboro. Kaila, the best nurse around, and I, normally eat at Son’s Döner Kebab once or twice a week for lunch.
Each time we enter we are greeted by the cashier, and by Son. Kaila and I are outgoing, perhaps on the obnoxious side, but Son and his staff treat us like family. They are friendly, and efficient, and we never have a long wait even when the restaurant is packed. It could not be a nicer setting for delicious food.
The döner kebabs are wonderful. The chicken, lamb and beef can be seen roasting on the vertical rotisseries, and fresh vegetables are piled high to choose from. Kaila and I always get the #2 with chicken, all the veggies, and garlic yogurt sauce. We never deviate from it because it's delicious!
The meat is tender, and never dry. It's flooded with vegetables, and served with a side of yogurt or garlic yogurt sauce. Both sauces are a fantastic addition to the döner so you can't go wrong with either. Fries are also available, as well as Baba Tea Slushies and canned sodas.
One of the most difficult things for me when competing is eating out. I'm particular about it, and not just for caloric values, but due to customer service, cleanliness and freshness. I don't expect every restaurant to be stellar, but I do expect fresh food when it's advertised as that. Son's restaurant delivers on all accounts.
