“Best gyros in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Have been going to this restaurant for years. We love the gyros, and a number of other items are good as well, including the turkey sub. Not the best atmosphere for eating in, but for take-out it rocks. Lots of options, and great gyros.

“Glen ellyn classic burgers, dogs and gyros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

Flips has great food, and a nice place to sit and watch tv. I don't mind eating alone here, lots of people chow solo here. Service could be better, but I have learned to accept the attitude. I come for the food, not the conversation.

“Gotta Love this Hometown Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Decor is not why you come here--it's the food! The Greek family who run this serves it all: Delicious gyros, crispy fries, perfect chicago hotdogs. Expect to see a line of people including Dads and sons on a break from little league, construction workers looking to fill up, and families stopping in after church. Don't worry, the line moves quickly, and you won't be disappointed. Gourmet it's not--expect only iceberg in your salad! But be sure to add feta and gyro meat and you won't mind. Bad for you food that's oh-so-good!

“Great service, felt just like home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2011

Just had a Sunday lunch at Flip's, the Polish lady behind the counter is wonderful. She recommended the ribs & gyro, we were very pleased with. This place is a hidden gem in Glen Ellyn, will be back for more.

“Gyros not up to normal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

Just left Flips. Used to love this place - the best Gyros ever. Unfortunately, this last time the 3 gyros I ordered were at best 1/2 the size of normal. Hope this is not the new normal or I am going to have to find a new favorite after 30 years.
