It's all Greek to me.

Sam's Gyros has been a longtime favorite of my family. We went when it was just a small single storefront, and have watched it enlarge and improve. All the while, the gyros and salads have been great. It's on an easy to access corner in Sobro. Plenty of seating in its enlarged dining area. Great... read more

They have some of the best hummus around. Even the small order is too much for two people. They serve it with piping hot pita bread that goes with perfectly. It's a little hole in the wall place but a good bite to eat if you're in the area.

Such a little hole in the wall, but the falafel is excellent. One of the best I've had in Indy. I wish I went here more often than I do.

Checked reviews before going in and thought we were in for a good Middle Eastern meal. The saganaki was just a lump of breaded cheese melted. Our table had chicken shawarma, beef shawarma, gyros and spinakopita. None of them were very good. They meat was definitely lacking any flavor. May be they were leftovers from the previous day?

The gyro was good but they nickle and dime you for the things that typically come with them , like lettuce, tomato and onion. Presentation is nothing to write home about ether. Just a plain gyro on a plain plate. service pretty much sucked. she was unfriendly and was acting like she was super busy and there were only two... More

Excellent gyros and shawarma! We eat here quite a bit and love the place. They just expanded and have a lot more room, although I really liked the cozy spot they were in before. Their cucumber sauce is fantastic. A full gyro will definitely fill you up, and there are great specials there for those looking to save some coin.

Every time I visit Sam's, I have to try the spicy gyro with cucumber sauce. The cucumber sauce is generously applied and the spicy gyro becomes spicier and spicier as you work your way thru the sandwich. An orange oil slick awaits you at the bottom of the pita. It is wonderful. While I used to visit Sam's at least... More
