My husband and I were driving through the area on a whim and stopped at the Florence Visitor Center and picked up a restaurant guide for lunch. We went to two restaurants on the guide, (heavy on Mexican and fast food) and walked out of both without being seated. As we were driving out of town we saw Mount Athos and decided to give it a try. It was on the guide but we both wondered how good Greek food could be in this area and were very skeptical. To say I had the best spicy gyro I ever tasted is not a stretch. It was absolutely amazing. My husband had the BBQ gyro and it was almost as good as mine. Finding such wonderful Greek food in the middle of the Sonoran desert was almost as good as our waiter who went out of his way to make us feel special. What a gem! I only wish this restaurant was in my neighborhood back home.
