We usually eat here after finishing up with the Tempe Arts Festival but this time I thought I'd try it during the fair. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised at their prompt and efficient service. I have only a few minutes to dash in and then have to get back to my booth and they did an excellent job of... read more

Great food and great service. We had pizza and a calzone and they were large. The restaurant was about three-quarters full and it wasn't noisy at all. Would definitely come back here again.

Horrible dinner. Ideally located in the heart of Mill Ave, so we thought we would give it a try. Expensive, poor quality restaurant. Truly a shame. Service was friendly and nice. Bathrooms were a disaster, uncleaned, cones and dented towel dispensers. Looks like a frat had a party here and left. Do not come here.

That's all I had and I was happy. It was very tasty, veggies were very fresh and the meat was very good. The staff was friendly and professional. It has a mom and pop feel which is rare on mill so I like them a lot. They have good specials in the collage off season which helps.

Less than impressed we visited in Dec and about froze. Big servings and lots of food. Drinking glasses, obnoxiously big. Decor warn and not up to date. Pricey even at lunch. There are better choices in Tempe.

Dine here before hitting the bars. This place is always a great choice either with friends or family. Personally I prefer to dine here with my boyfriend ! I have never been dissatisfied or disappointed in this location or the Scottsdale location.

Greek looked good walking by while we were browsing the Art Festival. We sat at the patio and had a great view to people watch. Our drinks were delivered pretty quickly. My husband liked his gyro plate and I liked my Lamb plate. Service was just OK.

I had my usual Gyros sandwich and shared pita and hummus with a friend. The food was of good quality, but I can get that same food at many other restaurants around the Valley. Their prices are too high, given the amount of competition they have. As a rule, I prefer to avoid chain restaurants. Gyros Express in Chandler has... More
