“Best Gyro this side of the Mississippi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you have a craving for a gyro, and you're in Cleveland... look no further.. This place has you covered. The meat is well seasoned, the Tzatziki sauce has you covered, and the Onions, whoooo. If you are extra hungry you can get a jumbo, but seriously, they already cram so much meat into a regular, I could not imagine trying to get more. If you never had it, try it.. it is really good. And if you are looking for the best fillafel, walk around the corner past the fudge guy and order one from Maha's!! you;re welcome

“Very good gyro, not worth the wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I waited in line for over an hour as they "did not have meat"
The gyro is massive, and tasty, but not worth an hour's wait. I wish I would have gone to a less trendy place and skipped the very long line.

Also, the staff was pretty rude (Reminiscent of the "soup nazi" in Seinfeld)

“Very hot in line. Best gyro ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Way too hot in line for 40 min wait! The gyro and sauce is delicious! I am a local and have seen the line grow as they have been featured on many shows. The attitudes have changed and the rude signs have gone up! They are so rude and talk about customers as they walk away! I love the gyros but it pains me to give them business when they are so ungrateful for their loyal customers who put them on the map! A lot of people feel this way because I heard the chatter in the line!

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

There is a long line here but the sandwich is excellent! Seasoned to perfection, the sauce is delish with a little kick. The portions are gigantic. You could order the jumbo, and two extra pieces of pita and make three large sandwiches, no kidding that's how big the are! The West Side Market is worth a trip anyway, this is a bonus.

“Messy, huge, and oh so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a Wednesday around noon, about 10 people back in line. We waited ~15 minutes and that was no problem at all. The lady behind the counter was extremely pleasant and even offered us a morsel of lamb to taste while she made our gyro. Two of us shared a regular sized gyro and it was plenty big- we sort of grazed through the market for lunch but the gyro was definitely the centerpiece. It took as a bit to find an out of the way area to eat it, and it was messy, but every single bite was wonderful! Be patient, bring cash and a big appetite, and you'll be in for a real treat!
