Cheep's is cheap, but what else?

As we noted Friday afternoon (thanks to a photo from a reader), signs went up Cheep's, which took over the former Snacklicious Cinderella at Second Avenue near St. Mark's Place... By Friday evening, the place was open for business... With an open-air entryway, it seems pretty inviting...




But how is the food? EV Grieve reader Alessandra provided these thoughts Friday night:

Ate there this evening they had only been open for about 5 hrs and they were still trying to get it together. Other than that the prices were great but the Shawarma was at best average. I would probably wait another couple of weeks to venture back and give them a second try and maybe the vertical roaster will be better seasoned and all will be better!

I'd say "average" is way too charitable. Meat, pita and condiments were all sub-par. It's more like school cafeteria food than anything. It is definitely cheap though, a schawarma pita was pretty big and less than $4.

I miss cinderella.

I stopped in on Saturday night for a falafel. It wasn't thoroughly middle-of-the-road, but they didn't skimp on the falafel (I think there were five in the pita) and the price ($2) was great. It's great when "cheap" and "not bad" is all you want.

Did anyone try the hummus? How much is a hummus sandwich? good service?
