Just tried this place today for the first time, because I wanted a Gyro. The bread was toasted dry. It would not need to be toasted if the bread was fresh. The meat was a small portion with a small slice of tomato and shredded lettuce and the yogurt sauce. I removed the raw onions, which I don't like. My... More

Happened to walk into this small shop, and ordered a Gyro and PB Special. The gyro tasted great, aside from having too much lettuce, and the sandwich was completely filled with sauces, meat, and cheese, they really do not hold back. Definitely worth the time and money for a great combination of quality and quantity for a reasonable price.

We stop there on a Thursday for a late dinner. And we couldn't choose better! This place serves amazing food. I got the gyros with mixed meat. It was excellent! For me the best ingredient, besides the meat, was the cucumber sauce: super soft and tasty. And the gyro includes a ton of fresh vegetables. My girlfriend got the chicken... More

Don't go by looks alone. This small, clean but somewhat cramped hole-in-the-wallish Mediterranean restaurant is much, much better than you might think. My wife and two young teen daughters ate here one night, and loved it. Food prep takes a while as it is all made by hand, but it was worth the wait. We had the Baba Ghanouj wrap,... More

This is a tiny local Mediterranean place in Pacific Beach. We were very impressed with the size and flavor of their classic gyro. You can get a lot of great food for $7 - $10. The falafel was flavorful and crispy. The service was quick and friendly. Our only minor disappointment was the Baba Ganouj. The eggplant didn't really have... More

We went to Vanoos Grillette after seeing recommendations on Yelp. It is a fairly plain little shop on Mission Blvd. with a few tables inside and a couple outside on the sidewalk. We ordered the Greek gyros and it was so good! The pita was so fresh and definitely one of the best I've had. The lamb and beef gyro... More
