Another Blacksburg dive.

A large sign says you can't complain about the service because there isn't any, but that's not quite true. Cheap plastic chairs don't offer much atmosphere but the gyros (year-roes) are as good as any I've ever had. The Souvlaki is good too but don't branch out. This place is good at middle eastern... read more

Always loved this place. Good Greek food. Been around, I guess, since the 1970s. Sit at the bar, at a table, and now, at tables outside. Food is made fast and takeout is available. Always got a kick out of sign that says "You can't complain about the service at Souvlaki's. There is none!"

This is a small location with usually 2-4 staff all pulling double/triple duty as server, chef, host/hostess, busser, so it doesn't take very long for Souvlaki to get backed up if it is a busy time... But the gyros are so good it's worth the wait if there is one. Souvlaki has been in Blacksburg for a long time and... More

Had a gyro where the bread fell apart. The flavor was okay; I just ate it with a fork. The chicken wrap was only okay. Rather bland...disappointed after reading the great reviews!

With all the changes in Blacksburg over the years, I was so happy to see that Souvlaki was still there. Yum yum yum Love those gyros!

Just moved back to the area and went back to a place I favorited fifteen years ago while I was in school in Blacksburg - I was not disappointed. The food is just as good, while the location even better due to the outdoor seating.

The food was cooked to order on their grill; excellent! We ordered the souvlaki sandwiches and both were very good. Nice quaint place on campus.

After reading rave reviews on Trip Advisor and having a local tell me it's her favorite place to eat I was expecting good food. Sadly though, the Gyro meat had no flavor and the sauce was marginal. I also had an order of Spanakopita, which, if doubled, would have been fine for an entree, but did not come with the... More

We have always enjoyed gyro pita sandwiches at Souvlaki. But it is the US and SW Virginia, right? So how authentic can they be? When when we crossed the border into Greece we did 2 things- exchanged currency and found a little gyro restaurant. Seriously- Souvlaki was better! I had to ask for tzaziki sauce in Greece- they offered me... More

I always get the chicken kabob plate. You have to wait a 10-15 min for it bc it is grilled to order but it is worth it bc it is delicious. The tzatziki sauce is the best in town and with the plate you get some to dip chicken and pita in. The olives and feta with the little salad... More
