Story goes that youngster drivers waited to have streets fully empty until early morning to go drive crazy. They would treat themselves at this centrally located small doner joint, which is now so called ‘Avtosh Döner’ after the name given to those crazy drivers, open until very late. For some people that is one and only döner joint in the town. Their service is real quick and only take-away as there are no sit-ins. Bear in mind that their döners are little greasy.
