For those nights when you need to get away from the base and the Incirlik Alley, but you don’t want to go too far, I recommend Kebapçı Adil. Located in the ‘furniture/wood district,’ it is not too far away from the base, so if you’re new to the base, a taxi ride here would not break the bank.
The restaurant has a great playground for kids too! As soon as the sun begins to set, it is perfect time to sit outside, enjoy your meal and let the kids run around. As parents of small children, this place is as good as it gets without getting a babysitter. They also have very comfortable indoor seating with air conditioning.
Kebapçı Adil serves the standard Turkish cuisine such as Adana Kebabs
, Chicken Kebabs, Mixed Grill Kebabs and Chicken Tava. I could not believe the portion sizes of the free pre-meal salads and bread! The portions were more than I had ever seen at any restaurant in the Alley. I am usually full before my entree even arrives!
A favorite menu item for me is the hummus! It is always served hot, covered in melted cheese and with fresh bread.
My children love the cheese bread, also known as pide. Kebapci Adil serves their pide on thin, crispy bread, covered in cheese and tomatoes. The prices are about the same as restaurants in the Incirlik Alley, which is about 7-16TL for an entree item and 2TL for soft drinks.

Make a right out of the base gate and then turn right onto the D400. Turn left at the 2nd light. After turning left, go about 1/4 mile, and the restaurant will be on your left at the round-a-bout. Parking is on the street in front of the restaurant, along the curb. Parking is free.
