My husband's favorite gyro is found here. I usually get the vegetarian plate. Lots of options. Best falafel, fries, and baba ganoush, tasty rice. Atmosphere is very plain. Extremely clean. Fast. Friendly. Fun little ethnic grocery. No waitstaff.....you order and pick up at window. Can get to go.....we often do for outdoor concerts in town.

A smaller college area deli with limited menu. The food was basic but very good. Staff was friendly. Price was reasonable.

The only true Middle Eastern Restaurant in Eau Claire, it does a great job with a small kitchen. Sam the chef, makes great kabobs. Our favorite is the combo plate (chicken and beef), with rice and salad. The eating area is small, but works perfectly well. You can also get more American food (it's near the University area, so kids... More

I have eaten here many times, since I live nearby. My favorite is the Combo Kabob Plate, which comes with marinated grilled chicken cubes, a char broiled, spiced, ground beef sausage type of kabob, rice, pita, small salad, and sauce. The Falafel Appetizer and the Chicken Kabab sandwich are also fantastic. Healthy and delicious. Highly recommended.

This is a very unassuming storefront restaurant that has a small Middle Eastern grocery selection in the back. You place your order at the counter and pick it up when your name is called. The food is very good, freshly made, and authentic, as far as I can tell,

The gyros are delicious, but my favorite is the kabobs! I also like the falafel. There is other vegetarian fare on the menu, as well as chicken kabob. It's one of my favorite lunch spots.

This is a very unassuming place advertising Gyros and Kabobs. We had the chicken kabob platter--rice, salad, kabob, pita bread. Each item prepared to perfection--and we both cook and are a bit critical of other cooks efforts. We would have been proud to serve this platter. Price was right, place was clean, service was friendly--including honoring our request for a... More
