Fast Food Kalimero is located next to main marketplace in the city centre. Besides hamburgers, cheesburgers and fries, you can also order other meals such as mixed meat, pizza, few veggie meals and ćepavi which is grilled dish made of minced meat. It is usually served with onions and ajvar, a local dressing made from red bell peppers¸ garlic and eggplant. 

Slastice Kod Mate is one of the favorite places among locals, especially after clubbing during weekends. It works full day¸ every day. Although they sell pizza and meat pie, the place is mostly known beacuse they have the best donuts in town. They fill them up with chocolate or marmelade in front of you and they put a lot of stuffing which makes them extra delicious.

Kebab House is among my favorite places¸ when it comes to cheap eats in Split. They sell the best Kebab in town which costs only 25 kn¸ around 4 € and the place is located just 5 minutes away from the promenade. You can choose between sweet or spicy dressing and order other meals such as chicken burgers, hamburgers¸ ćevapi as well as yogurt. 

Kantun Paulina is well renowned take out corner located in the old town of Split. They serve hamburgers, chicken burgers¸ sausages¸ steak and ćevapi. Although they have only a couple of meals to choose from, they are brought to perfection. 

Rizzo Sandwiches is the closest thing to famous Subway, American fast food restaurant franchise.
