We had a great time and meal at Yassin’s last night. We like to try Greek restaurants as we travel, and we were not disappointed here. We had to order out because of Covid, but the staff made the time so enjoyable. We found a...More

The lamb gyro is wonderful. Everything is fresh and the staff is friendly. Lines to order may be long, but the wait is very short. Also, try the falafel.

This is a casual fast food place that makes the food when you order. The falafels were nice & crispy on the outside, and soft & moist on the inside! Perfect! So many falafels that I have had were dry on the inside and almost...More

I was wondering how MidEast food tasted fresh. I wasn't disappointed. There was a wait, but it was worth it - last place I had MidEast food this good was the DeKalb Farmers Market in Atlanta.

I had expected some exceptional food based on what I had heard about the restaurant. The spicy chicken pita sandwich I ordered had nicely cooked and seasoned chicken, along with some onions and long straight strips of an unidentifiable vegetable (zucchini?). Pita was warm and...More
