Build-your-own-döner restaurant coming to Eagle Rock

Future home of Spireworks

Future home of Spireworks


Storefront ReportEAGLE ROCK —  It looks like Spitz, which has for the past decade been serving döner kebabs and Mediterranean-inspired street food in a hip environment, is about to get some competition on its home turf.  Spireworks, an American-style döner restaurant, will be opening up this winter in Eagle Rock, according to its website.

Inspired by the Turkish style of cooking meat on a vertical rotisserie, Spireworks customers will be able to build their own döner, paired with fresh-baked bread, and choose from a wide selection of sauces and toppings, says the company’s Linkedin page.

The owner, Robert Kaufman, has also filed for an application with state officials to serve beer and wine.

We contacted Spireworks for more details but have not received a response.

Spireworks will be in the same shopping center as the new Sprouts market and a Del Taco that will be taking over the former KFC location at the corner of Eagle Rock Boulevard and Yosemite Drive.

Meanwhile, Spitz, which opened its first restaurant on Colorado Boulevard, recently added a new location in Minneapolis.

  1. Looks like the days of Mediterranean Triangle , which is in the same shopping center, will be numbered! Too bad because they had good food at good prices.

    • Different type of food. I hope the new location have the real doner kebab, the ones where the meat go inside the bread like you find in France or Germany. Never really liked Spitz.

  2. The location is a vacation space next to Panda Express. I’ve had doner in France and I’ve eaten at the Mediterranean Triangle and I’ll take the Triangle any day. In fact reading about the changes in this center made me remember how much I enjoyed the falafel (best I’ve had in LA aside from fixing them myself) and thinking I need to stop by and get some to go. Last time I was there I met a friend who said he also liked it very much, more than some places in Glendale he’d been to.

    Good news about Del Taco coming in, a friend introduced me to their offerings but there’s not many nearby (Mt Wash) so this is a big plus. If I want KFC I go to the place on North Broadway in Lincoln Heights.
