Good, inexpensive dinner

We had dinner here with our son after we checked him into his student housing. The food was typical of a kebab house. Generous portions and not very expensive.

Ordered some food to go during their busy dinner hour and it was ready in 15 minutes. I would have given this place 5 stars, but the portions are pretty small for the price. Other than that, the food was great

Great variety and perfect seasonings. Very friendly and helpful. Don't be timid about trying the ethnic Greek faire.

On the recommendation of our hotel, we walked across the street to this Turkish/Med. restaurant. Order at the counter once you figure out the confusing pricing on the menu, seat yourself, and they bring the food to you. Prices are reasonable. I had three delicious appetizers: felafel (3), tabbouleh, and hummus with pita. Husband had a delicious gyro. We only... More

My husband and I decided to stop by Kebab Cafe, as it was across the street from our hotel. The smell, as you walking in the door, is amazing! We each order dinner plates. I ordered the gyro plate and my husband ordered the lamb. The gyro plate was incredible. We were both a little disappointed with the lamb. It... More

This small unpretentious restaurant is a real gem. The gyros were exceptional! I'm marking this one on my map in case I ever come close to the area again. Worth going out of the way to find!

Just a little restaurant in a little shopping center. Quite impressed with the food. The Tsatziki sauce was definitely hand made, so tasty. I had the rice instead of the French fries (which I hear are really good), it was very tasty. The Gyros was very tasty. Good prices. Recommend for a quick, easy, simple meal....will return.
