Delicious gyro and fries. The fries are crunchy yet soft... a delectable combo. Tasty baklava too. We'll definitely be back. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the portion felt slightly small.

Unfriendly staff and mediocre food. No need to ever go back. Overpriced for what you get. You don't even use Kalamata olives in your Greek salad??? What Disappointing

Four of us went here for lunch. I had the outstanding Rock Salad which was a Greek Salad plus Chicken, Gyro Meat and Tzatziki sauce on top (illustrated). My friends had hamburgers and gyros. Service was fast and courteous.

You get good enough food for a low price, which is a step up from the dining halls in my view. Atmosphere is a little fast foody, and staff felt very rushed, but the owner has a strong presence in the restaurant. Good enough sums...it upMore

Stopped i nfor dinner tonight since we were in the area. Menu sounded good, and there were quite a few things we wanted to try. My wife had the chicken pita special (with fries and a drink) and the Nutella pita. I had the falafel....We both liked our food; not the best but certainly not the worst. You order at the counter and they call your number when your food is ready. Overall OK place and since it's in a college town, the prices were not bad.More

Stopped in while visiting family who live in the area. We were checking out the kids museum/play place down the street & came here for lunch. Food was good. My family who lives nearby frequents The Rock and says they are basically the only mediterranean...food around. It isn't the best I've ever had, but was good. Was a bit disappointed to find that the fried mac and cheese bites were Kraft mac n cheese. I guess I always want friend mac n cheese to be a home-made mac n cheese lol. Otherwise we got the an order of the hummus & pita and I had the garlic chicken wrap. I'm not usually a big fan of french fries on my sandwich, but they weren't bad. The garlic sauce & chicken were great. My sister & brother in law really like their grape leaves,More

My family are brand new to the area and this is the first place we had been to. We were not greeted with a warm welcome, let alone a smile. The chicken sandwiches had grease spewing out of them, along with mushy tomatoes and wilted...lettuce. Two out of the four of us couldn't even take more than one bite of the sandwiches. There were countless flies and gnats swarming our food. And to top it all off, when we tried to politely tell a manager about how bad of serve and food we got, he made a scene about it in front of the entire restaurant. To say the least, we will NEVER be coming back and wouldn't recommend.More

Love coming here! Food is delicious and great location in Uptown Normal. Exposed brick makes a nice looking dining room. Owners are friendly and hands on. Always my first recommendation. Mediterranean and American food with spices from Lebanon. Excellent!

Location and atmosphere are wonderful. The gyro meat is overly salty and there's not enough tzatziki sauce (or tomatoes or onion) in proportion to the meat. Got a "The Rock" salad for takeout and they forgot the tzatziki sauce entirely. The baklava is good...extremely rich.

We were participating in the Miles of Possibility Conference and found this little gem within walking distance of the hotel. What a pleasant surprise. Good healthy food and at a reasonable price. A near perfect blending of the fast food experience with nutritional options.
