This very small place is next to a gas station & you could easily miss it but DON’T! The portion was huge and you get to pick up to 4 toppings on gyros and sandwiches. While waiting for our gyros, another customer commented they had...the best fried perch basket which she orders often & it did look very good. The cook & man who waited on us were very pleasant & were eager to please. (Lots of smiling & joking). We go through Waterloo twice a year & will plan to stop every time. They have fried food baskets, gyros & burgers.More

The gyro sandwich was excellent. It was packed full of delicious meat, and they have a line kind of like Subway where you can tell them what vegetables and sauces you want on your gyro. Got the gyro in a combo with delicious French fries...and a soda for a little over eight bucks. Not a bad deal at all. This is my first time here, but it won't be my last. There were other people in the restaurant ordering lots of deep fried foods like catfish and fried chicken, and all of it looks really good. Looks like they have Burgers, too.More

When we don't want to make supper, we really enjoy this fast food place for more ethnic, less greasy choices! Really good gyro, packed with meat and veggies of your choice

Very good Gyros - very tasty, moist & juicy. The wait staff is not the most outgoing or friendly and the service is not the fastest.

Understated little place off of washington Street, great Shwarma, great food. Truly yummy, great price. Not much to look at and only counter seating but who cares! Great little find.

We tried this place several years ago when we were unfortunately going back and forth to Mayo. Stopped last week on the way back from Minneapolis. In fact, anytime we go by we make a point of stopping. They make your gyro when you order...it. Right off the spit onto the grill. The softest, tastiest pita bread is warm and ready for the meat. Then they add the toppings of your choice. Approximately a dozen options for toppings. If you are in the mood, have an order of fries with it. They go right in the fryer before your eyes and come out sizzling hot with your gyro. Bread, meat and potato heaven!!! PS they travel and reheat well if you leave off the veges that might wilt.More

Not a lot of options but you don’t need a lot of options if the one thing you make is that good! Lamb gyro = yum

This is a newly open business in an existing business storefront. Please do not be fooled by the worn fixtures inside. The grill is burning hot, clean, and ready to warm up your order. Once your pita and meat are ready, you can have the...usual toppings added, or choose from multiple of selections. American food is cooked here also. The staff was efficient. There are only window tables here, so plan on to go, for families.More
