“By the Shell Gas Station....,...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

First I have to say that I fought my husband about trying this out primarily because of the location. I know I drove by it hundreds of times without glancing toward it. Who would eat there? The answer is clear......I do along with a bunch of people who know a good thing when they have it. The gyro platters are my favorite. The Greek potatoes are delicious too! Don't judge a book by its cover. Open it up and read the menu. You won't be disappointed.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Even though this place is located right next to a gas station, it's a great little find if you like Mediterranean cousin. I love their gyro and Greek potatos. Ask for feta cheese in the gyro. The owner is there most of the time and checks on everybody.

“Don't Miss This!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

It is true that some of the best places to eat are located in the places you least expect! Baba's is located at a gas station but provides some of the best Greek and Mediterranean food I have ever tasted. The lamb is the best thing on the menu and the portions are huge!

“A "Don't Miss" restaurant in Cumming? At a gas station?!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Do NOT let the fact that this place is attached to a Shell Station fool you. It's authentic Iranian and Greek food and, if you can get a table, it's a great affordable treat.

I admit some bias since I absolutely love Iranian food and having a place like this close to home is a dream come true for me. I WANT it to be good. Thankfully, it actually IS good!

Not nearly enough seating for Friday nights but make sure you go there.

Make sure you order the most-o-khiar (I have no idea how they spell it in English!). I have no ideas if the gyros are good, that would be the last thing I would order there. Take a chance and try something new.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We tried Baba's after purchasing a Groupon ($20 worth of food for $10). It was okay, nothing special. I had a Gyro sandwich. It was bland (the meat, the sauce) while the french fries were over seasoned (to the point where they were almost inedible). Honestly, I think the gyros at the mall taste better.
