I have been going to Papa's for several years, basically ever since they first opened. The "T" sauce (something I won't even begin to spell) is great. The gyro meat can be a little hit and miss as it is often dry and occasionally skimpy on the gyro, but on the gyro plate it tends to be quite plentiful. Cheap... More

Bring your appetite. A large selection of Greek delights. From hummus to gyros they have it all. Quick service and reasonable prices. A meal that is a challenge to finish in one sitting

Papa Gyro's has lots of good food for a great price. My friend is a chef at a high-end restaurant in Nashville, and he is the one who suggested we go here. I couldn't eat my whole plate!! I ate maybe 1/3 or 1/2 of it, and it was delicious. Would recommend to anyone!! There aren't too many greek places... More

I first has a Gyro/falafel in Athens, Greece. The 'Big Papa' Gyro is as authentic as it gets in the US, and just as good as the Athens one. The Tatziki sauce is perfect, and they don't skimp on it. The lamb is delicious, and plentiful. If you go at lunch, plan to stand in line, but it's not a... More

These are hands down the best gyros that I have tasted since I left Europe. They are so good that I return there for there gyros even after finding a fly in my daughters hamburger! Their customer service sucks and the way that they handled the fly in the burger was pathetic but they sure kill when it comes to... More

This was hands down the best Greek panini and Greek food that I've ever had. The place is clean and the staff friendly. Just take a look at the picture.

Best fries ever! The gyros are always great! The food is always quick and hot. Has been renovated and now has more room for seating. Also has a few tables outside for seating.

While visiting a friend and staying at the nearby Hampton Inn I tried Papa Gyros for lunch. I had the gyro plate and while it was a lot it left some to be desired. The salad was fresh and tasty. The gyro meat was a bit dry and on top of some type of longrain rice that I did not... More

The place is friendly, clean, simple, and inviting. Food (Gyros burger, Philly Sandwich, regular burger, fries) was good. My favorite is the Gyros burger. If you do not what to try, order the gyros burger. No complains. Not expensive.
