Great gyro platter in excellent greektown location!

This is my 2nd visit to Golden Fleece. I've gotten the Gyro Platter both times! The quality of meat is much better than I've ever had elsewhere. The building is old and has tons of character. Pull yourself away from the slot machines for a second, walk across the street, and get yourself a... read more

We went here as a result of the good reviews. We were very disappointment. I realize this is an old place but the food is no better and there are much better environments in Greek town. They legend is that there is one restaurant under greektown, making all the food for all the restaurants. I am getting to be a... More

So, my husband would always RAVE about the Golden Fleece and their steak sandwiches. For YEARS he has gone on and on about them. So, whenever we go to Greektown, we have to eat there (it has never been my favorite for Greek food). Anyway, we went there this past Saturday while we were on a Casino trip. Of course,... More

We tried Golden Fleece on Valentine's Day. I have to admit that it was one of the only places in Greektown that had openings at dinner time. I had a gyro which was OK, but I've had much better gyros at summer street festivals and at Plato's in Canton. My husband ordered the Greek Trio. His food was served ice... More

No wait, open late, great simple food. Much cheaper than the place across the street and without the wait.

I wish I did not have to write this review, but our experience was utterly disappointing. We gave a try to "Golden Fleece" over better looking places around precisely because it looks like a casual gyro/souvlaki joint - exactly the kind where in Greece, for example, you go for some seriously delicious food on the go. We even appreciated the... More

I went to the Golden Fleece last Saturday. This was my second time...............first time was about 10 years ago. I found the service each time to be slow. The food,,,,,each time.....was luke warm at best and was not very good. I asked for a salad instead of fries or rice and I was charged an extra $4.50. The bus boy... More

It isn't fancy. It's kind of dirty. There's not a lot of room. If you can look past this, it is really a gem. The gyros are out of this world delicious. The staff are great. Good comes out super quick and it is in greektown.

Yes dumpy.... Yes frumpy.. But it's about the food... Trust me on this, the best gyro you'll ever eat...every element thought out... Strong onions on down.... One other items can be hit or miss though .
