Gyro a-go-go

Stopped in for a late lunch and a beer when in town recently. Ordered a gyro pizza and a gyro salad. Really tasty. Staff treated us like we were their neighbors and made us feel very welcome. Nice selection of tap beers.

I feel like the food at Ansari's is good. The portions are large, and the service is good as well. I can't speak of the quality of Mediterranean food..I'm not an expert. I've always enjoy the meals I've had, and had good service.

I recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn (highly recommended!) across the parking lot from this restaurant and ate their food twice--once inside and the second time carried out to my hotel room. I love Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food and have spent a lot of time in that part of the world. The food here is very good and worth trying... More

Very good food. We got a beef/lamb gyro and a mediterranean salad. My husbamd usually doesn't like that type of salad, but he did like this one. They had a belly dancer on which I enjoyed watching. It was a little packed, but then again it was a Friday night.

My wife and daughter ate here while my son and I were at the Twins game. It was close to the hotel we were staying so it was convenient. They had some appetizers including what they said was some of the best hummus ever. The service was good as was their food. They loved their visit and definitely recommend it.
