The menu at American Hero is a lot more extensive that most people would imagine. Everything from grinders to gyros and Greek and Italian dishes. Great place for a takeout grinder or meal. The decor inside is a little sparse, it's definitely not a date night kind of place. But if you're looking for good food and a great value,... More

Greek owned and operated. Tried the gyro, may wife had the chicken and I had the lamb. Both were tasty, but the lamb was better in my opinion. Made to order. Seating area not very big but looked as if they did a lot of takeout. Fair price.

I enjoy this place, it's not exactly fast food nor is it a fancy place to eat. The atmosphere is very casual but the food is very good. There is an interesting selection such as Spaghetti and Meatballs, BBQ ribs, Chicken and Rice and my absolute favorite, Eggplant Parmesan. Then there are the sandwiches - Hero's of course, with assorted... More

Definitely worth a visit - good food, and a great value. Very nice service. Great selection. For a good gyro, you can't go wrong.

This is a good place for Middle Eastern food and subs - mostly take out. It is similar to Subway but with much better food. I sat take-out because if toy want atmosphere, this is not the place. It offers a buffet style restaurant. We love the hummus & felafel & the moussaka.

We found this place using Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. My husband got the roast beef sub and I had the ham, turkey, and provolone. We both liked our sins and loved our seasoned fries. The deserts looked amazing but we were both too full, next time!

I have eaten at the American Hero several times now, so I figure I might as well go ahead and review it. First, I wouldn't go here for the atmosphere; the place is clean, and well lit, and not unattractive, but it just doesn't have much that really stands out. Many places downtown have better ambiance, but by the time... More

I had the chicken kebab and my husband had the meatball sub, we both liked ours, fast service and great prices. My daughter had the kids spaghetti but said her sauce was too watery.

It's often hard to find a spot that every family member can agree on. American Hero has everything from gyros to meatball subs! Most of the prices are reasonable however, i do feel the drink and combo prices could be lower. The gyros (add feta for $1) are good. They are a bit on the small side if you're hungry... More
