Nestled between Campus Martius and Greektown you’ll find our first cheap eats shoutout. CK Mediterranean Grille brings an extensive menu with all the right on-a-budget points.

As much as Plaka's tends to take the cake for the late-night gyro cravings, the understated spot on the block (since 1971) goes to Golden Fleece. Just a few doors down, this dive-like Greek joint can hang with the rest of them. Go for the Greek with the gyro sandwich that guarantees to appease your cravings. Yamas! [Photo]

For $3, go baffle your tastebuds with the Gyro (Tomato Slice & Mint Tzatziki) or Lamb Slider (Lamb Patty, Rosemary Hummus & Pickle). Round it out with a side of rosemary hummus & fried naan and you just might think you’re at Anita’s. [Photo]

4. Bucharest Grill

2040 Park Ave
Detroit, MI 48226
(313) 965-3111

It's hard to think of any shawarma list without mentioning the city staple, Bucharest Grill. Expected to debut its 3rd location in Milwaukee-Junction this summer, Bucharest is eager to expand its empire of bargain shawarmas. For a five-spot or less, grab a tasty falafel wrap or beef shawarma on your way to the Slow Roll or a game at Comerica. [Photo]

5. Twisted Mitten

Keep an eye on the streets for this shawarma-dabbling food truck. Formerly Qais, The Twisted Mitten offers a (locally fueled) farm-to-table menu on the cheap. Track this truck down at Eastern Market for a crispy falafel dubbed “The Great Balls of Fire.” [Photo]

6. KouZina Greek Street Food

121 S. Main St.
Royal Oak, MI 48067
(248) 629-6500
Visit Website
This snug, Main Street joint has only been around a few years, but has already finely tailored its craft. Watch them shave your choice of meat from the vertical rotisseries while you select freshly made toppings for your dish. Think a zesty, neighborhood-style Qdoba. Go snag their signature gyro, "The Bobby," and, oh, if your sweet tooth is kickin’ — there’s always more room for Baklava. [Photo]

7. Hamido

13251 W Warren Ave
Dearborn, MI 48126
(313) 582-0660
Visit Website
This casual and friendly Dearborn favorite pulls out all of the stops to please the palate. Serving size is no issue here as plates will have you asking for a box. Shawarma, falafel, you name it, Hamido doesn’t disappoint. [Photo]

8. Eastern Market Mediterranean Grill

2478 Riopelle Street
Detroit, MI 48207
Our next cheap eats shoutout can please your appetite for next to nothing. Meat market turned restaurant, this Eastern Market staple knows how to whip together a mean shawarma. [Photo]

Detroit, MI 48201

Possibly boasting the most eclectic menu of our list, this neighborhood favorite loves to flip the script on everything Middle Eastern. The traditional falafel doesn’t stand a chance here with menu change-ups touting BBQ, stir fry, and burger combos. Right around the block from Wayne State, dirt cheap is the name of the game at Harmonie Garden. [Photo: Brenna Houck]

10. Byblos

4830 Cass Ave
Detroit, MI 48201
Boasting several Detroit locations, this mini-franchise is perfect for the Midtown hustle. While most of the menu can be pricey, the chicken shawarma wrap and falafel keep a low price-point for the quick lunchtime snack. [Photo]
