On a recent trip to the Gulf Coast area, our family was looking for something different. We decided to try John's Gyro. It was great! They call it John's Gyro for a reason.

We had been to John's in previous years and wanted to return because the food is good and quickly prepared. The gyros are delicious, french fries perfectly done, wait staff/cook very friendly. Restaurant is clean but has some age which adds to its appeal.

This was the first gyro I had ever eaten. The meat has a wonderful spice seasoning and a light cucumber dressing...it was very tasty. The owner and staff were very accommodating to a Southern girl who had never eaten this type food before.

Good food and charm lost quickly after owner/employee started very rudely communicating in foreign tongue. Yes a mediteranian per se restaurant but in America it is disrespectful to do so in front of customers . Re: Mediteranian cuisine- greek only.
