“Can't quite decide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The good news is that the Gyro Spot has falafel. There are not enough falafel places in the area. The falafel is OK. The decor leaves a lot to desired and the service is slow. The Spot does not take cards, which could be a problem. There were no napkins or any condiments on the table. And you have to bus your own table. Which means you have to seperate the compostables from everything else.

“Best gyro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Yum!!! Went here with my friend and never knew it was here despite eating at the Thai place across the street several times. I like gyros but every time I get one there's always something needed, like more sauce, seasoning, or more tender/fresher meat. The gyro I had today was amazing. So good that I kept savoring the flavor for about an hour after eating it. Atmosphere ok, but if its clean and the service is friendly(one man show here but that's ok) and the food is good, then that's really all you need. Will definitely go back.

“One of the best Gyros I have eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The pita was very fresh/soft. The meat was very tender. I would definately go back...bring cash. No cards.

“Not the best, but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food was good, but not great. Owner operated, one man show. Service was a little slow but very pleasant. Great & unusual drink (non-alcholic) selection. The bread of the gyro was very soft and thick. The gyro meat was good, but the toppings were just ok. Dolmas were so-so. Tahini was good. The tabouleh was average. If you're in Oly and in the mood for Greek, it's a good choice.There is a walk-up window for food on the go.
