A gyro special, for $11, is a delight, with a big fresh salad with everything you'd want, and a hearty sandwich (it's almost enough for two). One of our very favorites in downtown Tucson, on Speedway across from Loft cinema.

I chose the lamb shank and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and the quantity of lamb. Very noticeable was the delicate flavor--no hint of "gaminess" at all. This is not a fancy restaurant, but we had a pleasant experience. I've eaten in Greece and...More
