The Clay Pit-- Durham, NC

I know this place has been discussed in a couple of threads before but my searches were fruitless so I'm starting a new thread. The Clay Pit is located in NC 55 in the shopping center with Big Lots. The prices are so low at this place and there are so many items on the menu that I was quite skeptical about this place but as it was coming up on 3PM and I hadn't had luch yet I decided to give this place a try. I ordered the kefta kabob platter ($6.99!), which came with four small hot dog sized kabobs, pita bread, Greek-style salad, and fires-- but I asked that they hold the fries and provide extra salad, which they kindly obliged. For the price this has to be one of the best meals one can get in the Triangle. The kebabs were really flavorful, had a lot going on with spices and herbs, onions, garlic...the salad dressing was better than any greek dressing I've had and the slight sweetness balanced the saltiness of the feta so well.

This another drab restaurant, but what I'm finding is that some of the best places to eat in the Triangle shares this trait-- Superwok, Gourmet Kingdom, Saigon Grill, Los Comales, Allen & Son, Saxapawhaw General Store-- so I've stopped caring about this at this point. And at these prices-- it's easily 25-50% cheaper than other Indian joints I've been to-- complaints about ambiance seem a bit silly.

I will be back soon and often.
