Gyros fix if you are passing by

Went here for the first time,as I had a gyro craving! The service was friendly and welcoming! For lunch, I felt that the time to receive the two gyros ordered was too long ... took 20-25 minutes to get them. Loaded heavy with vegetables ... would prefer more on the meat side of it! The tzatziki... read more

This used to be a treat for us a work. We'd send one employee to pick up an order and it used to be awesome. Evidently there has been a change of owners. Thus, there has been a change in the food. Tzatsiki sauce was blah-bland. I wish I knew how to post of a picture of how many tomatoes... More

Cute decor. Gyro was yummy but heavy on the tomatoes and feta and light on the lamb. I like the reverse which is the Greek/Turkish way. I would go again if I were near-by but I wouldn't make it a destination.

Captain Pete's is not much to look at, aka a 'hole in the wall', but the eats are good. There is not much to the decor, but that's okay, because the food makes up for it. We have been here three times and each time we ordered either the lamb or beef gyro - yummy. Captain Pete's is off the... More

Captain Petes has the best falafel and gyros in Tallahassee. My biggest complaint is that they are only open for limited lunch hours. If you crave great food after 2:30 you are out of luck during the week. You may be lucky enough to catch them open after 2:30 on Saturday, but you take your chances. Service can be slow... More

Food is always good and staff is friendly. Great mint tea:) my kids also enjoy the food. It's a great little place that isn't a chain.

Had a buy one, get one coupon and decided to try Captain Pete's again after having not gone there in many years. The little storefront restaurant has been in the same location for around 20 years, so it must be doing something right . . . right? This is a walkup and order at the counter affair. Open for lunch... More

You have to get there by 2 pm but it's so good if you can get there in time. The King Gyro is the absolute best. Love this place!

The gyro sandwich was very skimpy on the meat. The sauce was hardly evident and the veggies were old and somewhat slimy. I barely ate half of the sandwich before the bland taste made it too hard to continue. This is NOT a place for gyro or greek food. It is a poor imitation at best.
