My comfort food

Maybe I'm a bit biased (I worked here for eight years), but Gyros Cafe has been, and probably always will be, my favorite restaurant. I've worked in other restaurants and, after seeing what goes on in the kitchen, wouldn't eat there myself, but Gyros is the exception. Seeing how everything goes... read more

Have eaten here a few times over the years and the food is just as good every time. There are several sandwiches on the menu but I just can't seem to get anything other than a Gyro combo and/or Ranch Fries. You won't be disappointed.

My family and I love the food here! I've tried everything from the gyros to the rollups to the salads and it's all delicious. My kids love the burgers chicken fingers and fries. The staff is always friendly courteous and quick. I visit several times and month and have yet to try something and not like it. I recommend this... More

I live nearby and have been eating here for a few years. I mostly eat the Gyros and other Roll Ups. The food is prepared fresh, portions good, and staff friendly. I especially enjoy the never under-cooked fries.

The food here tastes great. The service was fast and the prices were not too bad. Very nice size portions and you will not leave hungry. Both of my children got the hamburger kids mail and it was $4.29. It was a nice size burger and it tasted great! Also, this is one of the few places that sales mint... More

I really like to eat at Gyro's Cafe. The Gyro plate is very good and the place is always clean. I agree somewhat with other reviewers that the staff isn't overly friendly, but they are not rude by any means. They just seem focused on preparing food and filling orders rather than the PR side of the business. Since I... More

Food is very good, service is very good, Friendliness of staff is poor. I've been eating in there since they opened and have eaten there many, many, times. They rarely smile and never act like they have ever seen me before. I worked many years for a local, high profile, business that set the standard for customer service and friendliness... More
