Started up by a young German engineer who enrolled in the McCombs School just to get the visa that allowed him to start this biz, Verts has simultaneously opened two campus-area locations (one in Dobie, the other in the former Slices and Ices spot), both dedicated to the rotating roast popularized in 1970s Berlin by Turkish immigrants, whose avoidance of pork meant David Bowie could still keep the title "The Other White Meat".
