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

I ordered the sampler platter off the app menu and it had everything so that you could taste all greek foods. My fav was the one they call the greek meatball. The humus was to die for!!!!

A friend and I sat and caught up, chatting for 4 hours on the outside patio with a bottle of wine, appetizers, and finally dinner. Service was excellent, and we never felt hurried. The flaming cheese app was fun and delicious, as were the hummus choices. Greek wine is nothing special, but although the wine choices were limited, we found... More

This restaurant is one of my favs. The food is delicious! My favorite is Greek salad and garlic shrimp. The service is great too. This place is always a 10.

There are much better Greek Restaurants in the area. This small chain used to be great and has sinc become more expensive and mediocre . Still their chicken pita is a good healthy lunch

This year, I went with seven others as part of an annual gaming convention. Right off, our waitress was excellent; she was efficient and could handle our sense of humor and dish it back. The place has a good selection of beers (I liked the Zeus Red). The meal was good; I had four small tasty lamb chops with rice... More

This is a great find. I enjoyed the Greek Salad which had really crisp tomatoes and generous feta. Next, we shared the Veggie Mousaka and the Lamb Chops. OMG they had the juiciest lamb chops that blended so well with the eggplant and zucchini and spinach and marinara. I can hardly wait for our next visit. There are so many... More

We were pleasantly surprised on a recent trip to Tempe ... Fantastic value, over-sized servings and service with a smile. I was also impressed with the friendliness by which the manager made a substitution on the mixed appetizer dish ... My only beef (or garbanzo LOL) was with the falafel which really was not a falafel. Other than that My... More
