    DP Dough is the kind of thing you crave at 2am, so you call to place your order for a Maui Wowi and a Drop Zone with extra sauce and the guy is like “40 minutes to an hour for delivery” and you’re like “that’s fine” and then 45 minutes later the delivery guy is like “I can’t pound any harder on this door without the chance of busting it down” and you’re all passed out sitting mostly upright in a chair, fully dressed including shoes on and contacts in.
    It’s tasty but not the kind of thing I’d eat for lunch or a normal dinner.
    Here’s the menu for the Athens location. I’d expect Columbus to be very similar if not identical.

    I will agree with the ordering scenario, but to me DP Dough is delicious at anytime of the day. I cannot wait for this to open.

    The Arby’s spot has been empty, but I thought the upper floors had long since been turned into condos. Any word on what’s going on here?

    Dunno. I spotted that the other day too. Looks like remodeling? I don’t know if they ever sold them as condos. Perhaps they’re turning them into offices?

    The work on the old Zaxby’s is almost done looks like it will be a Papa John’s Pizza and some Chase Bank ATMs

    Travonna Coffee Shop has an awning up along with their hours (they close at 1AM).

    Unless it’s been mentioned elsewhere, a place called Ali Baba’s is opening up on campus where Jimmy Guaco’s used to be located. I’m all about more Mediterranean food on campus. Though I would kill for more Indian food options.

    If anyone hasn’t been to Ali Baba yet, go NOW. it is amazing. If you were a Pita Hut fan you will probably recognize 2 of the guys at Ali Baba, who left to start the new space. Mr Waitress and I agree it edges out Pita Hut; it has more options and a really detailed menu. If you are really poor they have 4 falafel balls for $1. We ate there like 4 times last week (turkey/lamb schwarma sandwiches ftw!). And as always, everyone is super nice, and, as with seemingly all Middle Eastern restaurants, their fries are some of the best.

    So this Ali Baba would be located at 1980 N. High then? That’s where the former J.G.’s was located.

    The falafel at Pita Hut was fabulous, and the guys you speak so highly of are actually really nice. I’ll be happy to send business their way.

    Falafel and tahini sauce – ummm!

    Correct me if this is not the right location Rosie:

    Yes, that’s where it’s at.

    They’re doing very good business there. A lot of the foreign students at OSU for the summer are so excited to have it there. I know a few people who have been going multiple times a week since it opened.

    These guys really hit a good nerve when opening this place. It’s well worth a visit.

    So is it fair to say that Travonna Coffee House is a direct result of the Jackson On High project? I was wondering how long it would take for this to spur some further development. Now if only someone would snap up vacant lot on 5ht and High (wasn’t there a Walgreens planned at some point?)

    Went to Ali Baba today following a trip to Used Kids Records. Let’s just say I’ll be stopping in for a bite on all subsequent music shopping trips!

    Got the Lamb Kabab with the Eggplant (wow!) and Salata sides, with complimentary pitas (3!) and a tzatziki-style sauce. For $7.99, this was definitely enough to split between two people.

    Ali Baba is delicious. Slather harissa all over the falafel sandwich and you have a winner.
