Cevabdzinica Sarajevo ("CS")
37-18 34th Ave.

I just had dinner at CS for the first time. Some quick notes:

-small place and quite busy, so prepare for a possible wait --both for seats and your food

-short menu: cevapi, patties, sausages, veal (liver, kabob, cutlet, kidney, heart), chicken, steak, lamb chops, trout, salmon, pies (spinach, cheese, beef potato), peppers with garlic, steak, salads

-desserts: baklava, tulumba, hurmasica, apple struedle

-prices are about $10 for the entree size dishes, and desserts are all $2 or less

-there are pictures accompanying most of the dishes

-my friend and I ordered the Mixed Meats for Two. It lived up to its name. But I thought the meat was a little bland, with the sausages being the only exception --they were good. The bread that came with the meat was really nice, kind of like a thicker and fluffier naan, but less buttery. Also the red pepper "mash" was really interesting and enjoyable. The chicken was inedibly fatty... I didn't know chickens could have that much fat.

-friendly, non-obstrusive, service

-Overall, I don't think I'll go back there except maybe when showing tourist friends around the nabe. It wasn't delicious and it wasn't cheap... the mixed meat was $18, so we ended up spending about $25 for so-so meat when we could have bought the same (or better) sorta thing from the nearby street vendors for much less.
