This Montrose convenience store on Waugh next to Rudyard's Pub serves an odd combination of Middle Eastern and Mexican foods. The falafel sandwich at Al's Quick Stop is outstanding, as are the greaseless french fries. This may be the only place you'll ever see Mexican tacos al pastor and Middle Eastern gyros spinning on vertical roasters side by side.
