Their Greek salad is so delicious I could eat it every night! Add hummus and bread to it and the meal is complete, no dessert needed-but could still be enjoyed! Service was good and decor is nice and inviting but not complicated.

We made reservations for this restaurant based on other reviews and were very pleased with the service and the food. We always look for restaurant’s that have a corkage policy as we prefer to bring our own. Very nice atmosphere and will be returning soon.

Very nice place. A treasure in Alexandria. We like that they keep the old pig decoration because it gives it character. Good food and service.

We went for dinner with out-town relatives. Very busy place. Very loud. Food was good. Service was uneven.

I have gone to both of Vaso’s locations for several years now and since day 1 I walked in and felt as though I was already family. The food is genuine Greek cuisine, and coming from someone that knows Gyro’s, Vaso’s Gyro are the best....More

Street parking, pay until 9:00pm. Some lots nearby and if you are taking metro or staying in Old Town, you can take the free trolley that runs up and down King Street.
