My office is a block away, but today was the first time I tried Hovan. It won't be the last! The gyro was super fresh and the flavor wad just right. The combo comes with 2 sides and the selections are very good. Inside seating provides middle eastern music and a clean environment.

I've eaten here several times and the quality of the food is top notch. Service is good. They serve the best falafel rider and the sides (hummus, tabouleh, Greek salads, baba ghanoush) are all delicious. I always eat here when I'm at Five Points.

First time here and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious - we left well satisfied. The service was great. The place is nothing fancy but is very clean and casual, and located in a nice neighborhood. They also have a good outside dining area. I would definitely return for their Mediterranean food.

We've been coming here for a long time but hadn't been in for a couple years. They still have the best Baba Ganoush in Jax. Their falafel is wonderful too but if you like meat, get the gyro. Finish everything off with a baklava, they have pistachio or walnut and both are full of honey goodness. The lunch menu is... More

Order: 2 Chicken Gyro's with 2 sides each (tabouli and grape leaves) with a side order of hummus. Price: $24 Pros: Very authentic Greek fare, their gyro's might be the best I've had, wonderful outside seating, and the owners are really friendly Cons: Their pita chips that come with the hummus are sub par, their non-Greek food is only ok...

Great freshly prepared food with all the Greek sides. Friends loved the wraps with their fresh made breads and I thought the chicken salad was the best I've had in a restaurant. Clean setting, fast friendly service, and an excellent place for a quick meal at a most reasonable price.

Hovan is middle-eastern-healthy-fast(ish)-food. I worked here in college and the family who owns it are some of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. I have watched every dish they offer as it was being made, and I can say without reservation that this food is well made, carefully made, and clean (no weird additives or secret fats).... More

I really enjoyed this place because it had very healthy foods. In my personal experience I would suggest the chicken gyro. It is delicious! They also have great salads and savory traditional baklava desserts. You can really enjoy traditional Mediterranean food here!
