Cheap & Fast

Yet to have a bad experience and for $6 it's hard to complain. The food comes quick, customer service may not be the greatest but that being said I usually will get it to go.

Cafe where you can pick up a bite to eat or get take out. Because I have a soy allergy I could not find anything on the menu I could have.

The owner of this place went on and on and on and on some more about the difference between a donair and a gyro. What she served me couldn't be described as either. It was unlike any donair or gyro I've ever eaten and I will never eat here again. The meat was spiced very differently than any other gyro... More

It's out of the way (traffic tends to jam up at the access and egress roads). The gyro meat is some molded mixture that I'm sure comes in a box. It tastes good but, like sausage meat, I try not to eat mystery meat too often. OK if you are driving by. It's tiny inside, so eating in means sitting... More

.... If you like being yelled at by the business owner for using your gyro stamp cards.... apparently if you dump $72 into there you get a free gyro with a gyro card. Me and my boss used to go in there often but she claimed that we had to pay together and could only cash in one card at... More

I was surprised to see a couple of negative reviews on the food. We have eaten at Greek restaurants from Vancouver Island through to Toronto and we both love their food. Yes it is expensive to normal fast food places but we feel it is well worth it. The only thing missing is the atmosphere needs tweeking. It is not... More

It's fast food and it's ok. Good for a quick meal on the run but so is Mcdonalds except they don't sell Gyros. I will go back one day. It's small and the service is good and the prices are too.

Sorry but I'm an east coaster and the donairs just don't compare at all. You should name them something else, I found it misleading. And totally where's the cheese!!! Not that feta but real cheese and throw some meat on there..

You won't be disappointed with the gyros. Freshly hand made. Atmosphere could use some updating though.

Found them only because they listed themselves in the tourism guide and we wanted something simple and fast. You have to know where they are located as they are on a side street. First time it was the gyros (beef & lamb and chicken) and then we had to go back for the donairs for that sweet sauce.
