Been coming here once a week for 6 years and hope to for many more. All the food is awesome with the Shish Tawook probably the best. Also the best wait staff around. Nice job!! Brian

Delicious gyros and hummus! Definitely worth the stop if you're in the area! Great food and very reasonably priced! We will be back when we're in the area again! :)

One of only a few Mediterranean places in the area. Gyros are good as is the rest of the menu. Not a lot of seating but there is overfill in the coffee shop next door.

This is the second time I've been served a cold Gyro as carryout. I guess you have to ask them to grill it now? I'm done doing the drive for poor food.

This restaurant is located in a strip mall, which made me question whether the quality of the food would truly be Mediterranean, or a quasi-American substitute. Walking into restaurant, it offers a typical American luncheon atmosphere, and I thought, “Oh no”, but the restaurant is sparkling clean and the young lady at the counter was friendly, energetic, and patient.

This has become one of our go-to places in CR. Fast service, excellent food, interesting options. Not a high-end place by any means, but the staff are superb, everything is made to order, and we love their chicken scharwarma and the Shish Tawook!!!

I asked for spicy and I got it. Delicious take out lunch. Hard to beat value with courteous service and easy online ordering. Yummy...every time I go back to this place no matter how long it's been. Good vegetarian food options as well.

The decor is non existent. Looks like an ex-fast food place. The food is excellent and true Mediterranean cuisine. I had chicken sharwarma with babaganoush. Fine lunch, heavily laden with garlic and olive oil. Come early, we arrived at 11:45 and were served right away ( you order at the counter) by noon the place was packed and the wait... More
