“Gyro plate, Great! Extra meat? $2.50 per slice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I ususally call in my order ahead,the (manager/owner) has no personality, not friendly:( but the other workers are.I always hope he dont answer when I call, he can be very rude, especially if you ever ask for substitutes( dont go there)
The food is really good, gyro plate consists of several pieces of gyro meat(extra meat cost $2.50 per slice) a small salad(make sure dressing is on side) rice and fruit(orange slice &pinneapple slice(thin)
gyro sauce which is very good.Baklava is delicious.The tea is flavored so I skip it.Its very small inside,mirrors everywhere(i guess to make it look bigger?) if its nice outside eat out there, patio is very nice.Parking is awful, especially when it is busy,the redlight is a long wait.If your in the downtown area(south side) eat at the south side Purple onion, the owner is very friendly, food is great and outside patio is even better:)
