Kabob Hut in Towson on Allegheny Ave

My Fiance and I went to the Kabob Hut on Allegheny Ave in Towson for dinner this evening and neither of us liked it. To start with, everything appears to look kind of dirty - the front door is dirty, counter tops were dusty in places, cash register was dirty, nobody wiped down the tables and the floor leading to the condiments and bathrooms was very dirty and worn out looking. There were only two college age girls working in the whole restaurant (ringing people up and preparing the food – hopefully washing their hands) and it seemed they were overworked for the number of customers they had. I almost decided against eating there before we ordered, but figured that the place might still redeem itself if the food was really good. We ordered hummus as an appetizer, my Fiance ordered a Greek salad and a beef shish kabob platter and I ordered a combination platter of steak and chicken and we both had sodas ($38!). We got the hummus appetizer and it was a huge container of tasty hummus, but only included a few little scraps of cold pita. I went back to the counter for more pita feeling short-changed and it caused confusion and they ended up giving more pitas to someone else in the dining room. My Fiance did not enjoy her Greek salad - I tried it and thought it taste pretty good, but she reminded me that it was a "Greek salad" and there was only a tiny sprinkling of feta cheese on it. I personally liked the grilled meats - the consistency and the spice, but my Fiance thought hers was tough and seemed like they cooked it ahead and then re-heated it although she agreed the spice was good. They ran out of napkins and plastic forks at the condiments station and I didn't ask for new ones because I felt sorry for the two girls trying to run the place by themselves (they were actually nice and seemed to do best they could), so I ate my shish kabobs and rice with a plastic fork and spoon. I thought the rice did not taste good - it had a vague fishy flavor or something, but my Fiance said that it tasted fine so maybe my taste buds were off. To sum things up, I think Kabob Hut appears uncleanly and run down, is a poor value and the food is not that good. I found The House of Kabob on Harford Road to be light years ahead of Kabob Hut in just about every respect.
