Outstanding!

The gyro meat here is some of the most tender and moist I have gotten any Greek restaurant! I got the big Papa Gyro, and it really was the biggest gyro I have ever gotten! My wife got a plate of food and couldn't eat it all. Enough leftovers to bring food back to the hotel! If you like Greek... read more

The Gyro tastes good, but it's not the best I've had. I prefer Red Onions, they use White. The way the Gyro is put together, it can make quite a mess. Most people in Huntsville love this place, and it is the best option in Huntsville.

...but I will. Yes, this is an excellent Greek restaurant. I'm not Greek and I haven't been to Greece, but I love Greek food and eat it when I can. We got the Big Papa Gyro wraps, exactly what we wanted. So fresh and good. All the classic ingredients, just the way they are supposed to be. We also got... More

This is a really excellent place to experience Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. The gyro sandwiches are very flavorful and reasonably priced. Extra gyro meat can be added for a slight charge. The Greek salads are fantastic with all the flavors distributed throughout the salad. Other options are available in quite a variety of meals and desserts can be ordered also.... More

Tried Big Papas Gyros by chance. Very busy at lunch so I had about a 15 minute wait to order. Gyro is the best I have ever had. Food was ready is less than 5 minutes. Well worth the wait.

First time eating here bad enjoyed it. The atmosphere is great. Service was not only quick but friendly. I had a chicken breast panini and loved it. It was big enough to feed at least 2 individuals.

We have found that they have good Gyro's and service is fast and friendly. They have expanded the restaurant to accommodate for more seating a big plus at lunch time.

Expensive, but convenient (I walked from hotel) and lots of food for the money. I got the Gyros platter and a side of Dolmata. It was more than I could eat, but took the leftovers in for lunch the next day. I've eaten a lot of greek and while it's good, it's on par with any other place I've eaten.... More

Papa Gyro's has the best gyros in the Huntsville area bar none; and it is an excellent restaurant in general. Recommended to anyone who enjoys Greek food.
