Two employees held the door open for my kids and I when we arrived mid week for lunch. They followed us in, stowed their half smoked cigarettes and took up their station behind the register and grill. Fortunately the cook slipped his hands into some plastic gloves. Food was mediocre at best, basic meat and pita gyro. Greek salad was chopped head lettuce, a few olives, feta and a cucumber. Nothing special at all and not cheap or fresh. As we were leaving same idiots at door with smokes in hand. Followed customer number 2 into resturant only they didn't bother with gloves for him. Bare hand touch of all his food after they were done with their smoke break. Would't set foot in there again after I saw their sanitation procedures. Can't believe I didnt get sick other then the thought.

My family loves the Gyros from here. The best thing is you get a really good share of meat. They have a few options to like hot Gyros or Chicken Gyros and a salad that's mostly Iceberg lettuce. Fries are good and my son loves them.

They recently remodeled the store. Its better than it was, but they should have gone further. Its just not too exciting. Just a few booths with a TV. Could be cleaner. I think the college students go here for the food, not the setting.

Service can by spotty. I've been there and can take 3 minutes to 20 minutes to get a Sandwich. Mostly college students working, and sometimes they act like they don't want to be there.

Overall the foods good. Don't go for the atmosphere.

Captain Gyros is a white and blue painted restaurant a few minutes walk from campus that serves some of the tastiest gyros (ee-rose) I've had that will fill you up. The meat is savory but the spices and tzaziki sauce make it a treat. The prices are decent: ~$5 for a gyro +$2 for a combo. There are about five tables and I think they do delivery.

Pros: Many options for gyros (spicy the best), burgers/sandwiches, and fajitas, inexpensive, and simple.

Cons: parking can be difficult during peak hours

The cafe is not fancy, just a room with a counter, kitchen, and some tables. You order at the counter and wait a little while as they make your sandwich. The gyro was very good. They have a variety of gyros - chicken: classic, spicy, or barbeque. They also offer burgers, fries, onion rings and several other things.
