I have been coming to this restaurant for well over twenty years. When I lived down the street, it was once a week. Now, once every six months or so. It's not a pretty place by any means. I've always overlooked that in favor of the food. Today I visited, and the first thing I noticed was the smell. The... More

Well we were seated... More

I am always on a quest to find the perfect Gyro. I have had dozens across the country and was looking for something good while on vacation in St. Pete. A quick Google search gave me two nearby options. I discuss the other place in another review. This location had a slightly better Gyro (see pics). As you can tell,... More

The location is just minutes away from home and is great for lunch with the service being quick and the food selection is awesome with their choices fairly priced. And as always, they have some of the... More

$28.00 for 2 Gyro combos and a salad????? Wow I've been going here since the early 1980's and the food has gotten smaller and way over priced. Never will I go through that Mini drive-through again. It's sad that people think they can stay afloat with high prices for fast food when you can eat quality food for the same... More

We used to like this place but it has really gone down hill in the last year. The fries were horrible. They had cooked them let them get cold and then droped them back in grease to heat them up. Also the gyro bread was awful and they were stingy on the meat. The gyro alone is $6.49 and not... More

I'm used to home made Greek food. This was frozen spinach pie. Greek salad had deli style potato salad in it. One olive? Really? $9.00 for a combo. I won't be back any time soon.

We like the gyros and the fries are always fresh and tasty. I have only ever had the gyros and they are always great. The prices are good.

Dated like most of Pinellas Park. Decor is out of style, the place is small, the atmosphere is Spartan with news radio playing a bit above background noise. However, the food, despite the limited menu, is very good. We had the gyro platter (what else?) with a salad. Everything was tasty. We topped it off with baclava (made off site).... More
