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 .

Yes they set our cheese ablaze with vodka and it was the best $6.50 I spent in Detroit. My husband thought the lamb was delicious though I did not care for it. They were out of all the local beer and you couldn't read the wine menu. I would try the rice next time instead of fries.

Authentic greek food. It is a cramped little restaurant in Greektown. It is a good place to go for a quick bite such as a couple of gyros. They seat you quickly and the food is quickly brought out. You can even order the flaming cheese if you like! Opa!

The Gyro and Spinach Pie are wonderful. Cooked just right and flavorful. The beer prices are average and there isn't much selection. The gyro meat is "Traditional Greek" and not "Coney Island Style". The gyro loaf of meat looks like it was made "in-house" and not shipped here frozen from Chicago. The filo topping on the spinach pie is cooked... More

The signage and outward appearance makes you believe it is a restaurant that has seen its better day, but don’t let it fool you. The food is great, and the service friendly. We ate an early dinner prior to going to a Tigers game. It was about 4 PM on a Friday and we had no problem being seated. Our... More

We have been going to the Golden Fleece for years. It is a very small place. If you sit at the counter you can watch your food be prepared. The food is excellent. The price is right! The wait staff is friendly and appear to enjoy each other. Our waiter took us upstairs to see their remodeled roof top bar... More

Wow, what a surprise. The quality of the food was amazing and better than other Greek places that charge twice as much! I highly recommend the Gyros plate and the Opah! The lunch crowd was huge so we knew it had to be good.
