Based on TA ratings and each craving a gyro, we went out of our way to stop here for lunch en route to Albany. What a disappointment! First, the meat was not the traditional shavings you get at other Greek restaurants. There wasn't any tasty flatbread... only crummy pita pockets. To cap it off, the tzatziki sauce wasn't made with... More

Arrived at 12:43 and had steak and beef on weck. Our server was Blake who was very rude and degrading. I am a general manager at a local hotel and was very dissatisfied with the service he provided. His attitude was terrible we had to ask for our drinks to be refilled and even then it took forever.

I go to Alton's frequently for dinner with my parents. I usually always get the open chicken souvlaki. It's what their known for.

I ordered the beef gyro wrap when I was here and it was absolutely delicious! The taziki sauce on it was also very delicious and flavorful although a little messy. :-) I would come back for this wrap any time that I am in the mood for Greek food.

Amazing food. Everything here is delicious. I recommend the open chicken souvlaki, its amazing. I have never had a disappointing meal here. If you're heading out to Cheektowaga, stop here for lunch or dinner

Interior is nicer than exterior: it may have promised a bit too much. Hostess was very friendly and so was the service. Seating was fast, food was not. The food quality (dinner) was inconsistent: some meals were great (poached pear salad) others were edible without any noteworthy gastronomical quality (taste, consistency, composition, spices, or any other feature: eg garlic breaded...
