Gyros and kebabs

Good food. Nice to eat at a non-chain local place with ethnic fare. Only complaint is that the heat in the place doesn't work. It's freezing in there. Bring a coat.

Better than most local Mediterranean/Mideastern semi-fast food gyro joints in the area. I have never been disappointed on my orders unlike Grand Gyros and others. Service with a friendly smile (thanks Shaw) and reasonably priced. The owners also run the Caspian Cafe. Recommended.

We eat here about 1-2 a month and always by our Pita bread from this store. We also purchased LadyFingers and (mascarpone) cheese for tiara misu dessert. Place is not much on atmosphere but work is being done in the room next o the store area so that might improve once it's done. The food is awesome fresh and pretty... More

Stopped in for lunch and had the Gyros. The vegetables on the gyro were very fresh and the cucumber dressing tasted house-made. The service was fine, but only consisted of ordering at the counter and the food delivered to the table. They also have many items in the store as you enter.

I really love the food here. I've been here many times and the food is great although the service is inconsistent. Once I went and waited 35 minutes while multiple people who ordered after I did got their meals. The owner was kinda weird like he was gonna blow up if I said anything. I guess this guy is kinda...

That place is terrible, I will tell everyone I can about it! I called to this store to find halal meat and this guy was the rudest person I have ever spoke to in my life, he informed me the only halal meat they carried was ground beef and I asked him if he knew of any other halal stores... More

My favorite local joint for gyros. Most people probably drive right by it, thinking it's a Mediterranean convenience store (which is partly right). Briar Mart used to be my staple go-to place in college, and it's still just as good as a decade ago. I've never been disappointed by the food that Sean and his family members have served here...

We get food from here at least once a week. Shaun, the owner is courteous and the Gyros are the best I have ever eaten. The chicken is tender and very tasty, although the wait for that is 15 minutes, it is worth it as it is cooked from fresh... There fries are more like English Chips and to die... More

The three takeaways from this review are: 1. Briar Mart has good Mediterranean food for a reasonable price 2. Don't use groupons at Briar Mart 3. Don't let your wife or girlfriend be the one to talk to the owner if something is wrong with your order if you aren't ready for her to be screamed at by a large... More

Who would of thought.....a little Greek fast food inside of a mini store. Just happened to be driving by and what a treat! The Grubinator dined on the special and almost couldn't finish it.Excellent Greek cuisine at great prices and large portions to boot! Stop by.
