Visited for the Tuesday special buy two get three. Great value. The sandwiches were stuffed with meat and lettuce and onions So big that we all could only have half a sandwich each. Really delicious taste Juicy and moist, need lots of napkins to eat and stay clean.

We love the food. The gyros and onion rings are awesome! Complete yumminess! The food is hot and fresh. No skimping on quality ingredients here. The menu really does have a variety to choose from so there is something for everyone.

As the title says, Best Gyros in town. Huge portions, fresh, and cooked to perfection. The service is top notch. Fast and Friendly! The Cajun fries are spicy, but really good. The cucumber sauce on the gyro is great. A highly recommended place
