The souvlaki on a bun possibly the best in the city. I had the chicken it was cooked on metal skewers like it should be, it reduces cooking time by also cooking from the inside. The chicken was cut into large chunky cubes nicely seasoned with a nice crisp crust on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. The tzatziki was authentic and flavourful and the tomatoes and onions were fresh and nicely cut for the sandwich. The bun was a seseme sub bun which was nicely toasted taking the seseme seeds to another level really complimenting the sandwich. All in all very well put together for something so simple. There burgers are very good as well worth a mention better than The Works across the street for a third of the price. The fries were not blanched very pedestrian and the onion rings frozen not bad but not really worth mentioning. If you are on the Danforth check it out free parking and the place is always busy every time I go here there are police officers here so there you go. Adios Amigos!

Chicken souvlaki was great. Fries very good too. Ton of food for $21.00 (fed 2 adults and 2 younger kids). I had a hard time finishing, and I know how to eat. Cash only, free parking out front - rare in Toronto!

I read a few reviews on the internet and decided I had to try it. I went with a few of my friends after some delicious craft beers at The Only Cafe closeby. I tried both the chicken souvlaki on a pita and the gyro dinner. The chicken souvlaki was fantastic. The gyro was not that great but decent I thought. The gyro dinner came with a greek salad and fries which was good. The prices were reasonable. This place is busy and just goes to show that they have a loyal local following. I also tried the Pacman video game machine. It took be back to those good old simple days. Will go back to try the Pork Souvlaki next time. :)

Still a good place to visit. I was a little disappointed that each item on their order menu went up an average of $0.50 within the past week.

Gyro on a pita is now $4.75 (+HST)
Their hamburger combo that used to be $3.99 (+GST) jumped to $4.25 (+GST/PST) two years ago. Now it is now $4.75 (+HST).

In Ontario taxes used to be GST (federal) and PST (provincial). Recently they combined the two taxes to make HST (13%). For restaurant purchases less than $4.00 the provincial tax is not charged making the total tax 5% (federal GST). Therefore when combos are raised over the $4.00 mark, it is a significant increase to the customer.
