Food was so good, I was really in the mood for something flavorful and the Gyros was fabulous. Order at the counter, simple and easy. Staff was great!

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

One of the best Gyros Ive ever had! Highly recommend! Service is great and they serve beer as well. Definitely worth a stop if your staying or traveling through

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.

This place was very good, the service was friendly and the food was prepared to order quickly and was very good. Kababs of all kinds, falafels and giros are all made to order with fresh cooked ingredients. Great place

When I'm in Arcata, I usually eat at fast food, pizza style joints because my grandsons prefer these places over most other restaurants. The Kebab Cafe is within walking distance of the hotel, The Hampton Inn, which becomes my "home" when I am visiting my grandsons. I took a chance the last time I visited just 2 weeks ago. Although...

I love this little place. Not much to it, some cheesy decorations but I don't come for the view I come for the food! Super fresh, big portions. Great Greek choices and burgers. I love their gyros Try the atomic mushrooms. They are the bomb!

I had the lamb kebab and it was delicious. It was just me and my boyfriend there. I asked one of the waitresses if they could make me a vegetable kebab without the onions because I am allergic to onions. First she said she isnt allowed to make accommodations THEN he reason changed to she just didnt want to because... More
