Carry-Out or Dining in food is always solid. Can't go wrong with the skirt steak, BBQ chicken and gyros. Try the gyros with the red sauce. Gives it a nice zesty kick. Don't forget the greek fries, very tasty. Food is always fast, dining room is simple but comfortable and inviting. Simply one of the best local spots in Evanston.

a large, yet cozy greek restarant with outstandingly friendly service and a warm, inviting atmosphere lots of local people treat themselves to - families and couples and small groups of friends gather for conversation and tasty food - no rushing, little parking

We have been going here for years and it never disappoints. Fast, fresh Greek food that will make your mouth water. I suggest you try the Gyro Plate and the Vegetarian Salad with Feta and Fries on top. The fries have a wonderful hint of lemon and it is cooked to golden perfection!

Been here a few times now for the gyro. It is fantastic, I get it with the fries with the feta cheese crumbles and olive oil. Service is very good, servers have a clear understanding of each item. It is a great spot for lunch or dinner and oftentimes is pretty packed. Plenty of metered parking available in the area.... More

A long-time mainstay in south Evanston. Nothing fancy for sure but reliably good, simply-prepared food. Sandwich/salad place for the lunch crowd. Big helpings are typical.

This place has been around for over 15 years and the gyros, burgers, chicken and especially the greek fries served "wet" in a secret lemony herb sauce are one of a kind. Cash only, keeps the prices really low. Wait staff very friendly.

Not a large place and the menu is not real expansive but the food is good and the service is as well. Always crowded with many of the local area residents. Have never eaten there but always a crowd there. Good to call ahead if you know what you want. Gyros are awesome and the Greek fries are as well.... More

The food was very good as was the service at lunchtime. Plan to try their takeout and to come back for dinner. "Maria" fries are a special side. Looks like it might be one of our standards. Food was plentiful and tasty.

The gyros always sizzles, have it on a Greek salad with wonderful lemony Greek fries, or on pita bread and it is simply marvelous. This place is a local treasure, their chicken is tender, and seasoned well, the service attentive. It is a small place, always full with those dining in and carrying out food. Over the years the quality... More
