A UAB landmark

This is the casual late night eats for all UAB students, don't miss out! It's a right of passage. Everything's great, but don't expect a pretty atmosphere, it's all about the food.

My wife and I had lunch in there today and it was Wonderful! She had the chicken special with salad, rice, humus, and pita bread. I had the lamb gyro that came with lettuce, tomato, and some other fixins that made it fabulous. It normally comes with French fries but they allowed a substitution of a small salad. It was... More

At least in our family it does. We get the shrimp stuffed potato with double shrimp. We still leave a lot of potato cause they are the size of shoes!! We just grab three forks and pig out. Very popular with students and bachelors because 1 take out box is 2 big meals or three small ones. Popular local dive

Visited for lunch with friends. Been there several times before. Tried the bakers, burger, kafta plate, and chicken fingers. Certainly has a Mediterranean taste that you'll never forget. Prices are reasonable and the service is fast.

Stopped on a Saturday at 1230 for lunch. Beautiful day. Outside seating was nice, although the booths are all slanted down because they are on an incline. The gyro was actually a wrap. It came rolled up in a tortilla not a pita and was pretty tasteless. Not enough meat and the lettuce was overpowering (had that bagged chopped lettuce... More

We stopped by late one Saturday night after a comedy show. It's located downtown and looks a little sketchy! We decided to try it anyway. There was a line when we got there, but that didn't discourage us. We ordered the Fried Chicken Baker and a Gyro. The baker was HUGE!!!!!! It was delicious. I wasn't expected very much flavor...

Great food, great environment, always fun and delicious! They have a great outdoor seating area for large groups so you can eat dinner and hang out. Open all the time so it is super convenient.
