Ghareeb Nawaz is a Pakistani-Indian restaurant on Devon Street in West Ridge, and it’s a favorite of a lot people for three reasons: the food is excellent, it’s cheap, and it's open 24 hours a day. Between the tile floors and no frills tables and chairs, it kind of feels like eating in a cafeteria, but it’s a much better cafeteria than the bad food your high school used to serve. Most things here cost about $5, and if you’re unfamiliar with the Indian or Pakistani names of dishes, the explanations on the menu should help you make a good choice.
