It was expensive, for a soggy gyro that didn't have much meat and served by a rude employee! Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this place or return.More

I had their falafel sandwich and enjoyed it thoroughly. Served with fresh veggies and sauces.... a healthier lunch as opposed to one of those hamburger places.

Yet to have a bad experience and for $6 it's hard to complain. The food comes quick, customer service may not be the greatest but that being said I usually will get it to go.

thanks we just start heating up pita as soon as we see customers as we know you are in a hurry, or have a short lunch break so phoning in too helps and pick up at the drive thru

The owner of this place went on and on and on and on some more about the difference between a donair and a gyro. What she served me couldn't be described as either. It was unlike any donair or gyro I've ever eaten and I...More

It's out of the way (traffic tends to jam up at the access and egress roads). The gyro meat is some molded mixture that I'm sure comes in a box. It tastes good but, like sausage meat, I try not to eat mystery meat too...More

It's fast food and it's ok. Good for a quick meal on the run but so is Mcdonalds except they don't sell Gyros. I will go back one day. It's small and the service is good and the prices are too.

Sorry but I'm an east coaster and the donairs just don't compare at all. You should name them something else, I found it misleading. And totally where's the cheese!!! Not that feta but real cheese and throw some meat on there..More

You won't be disappointed with the gyros. Freshly hand made. Atmosphere could use some updating though.
