Quite the authentic Greek experience in Fira, Santorini. Lucky's is located in the downtown area of Fira, about a 5-minute walk after you get up top.

The gyros were dirt cheap, at about 2.30 Euros for a standard lamb gyro. The gyro had french fries in it. YUM. Very, very tasty meal. One of the best gyros I have ever had. The restaurant rates well and is known in the area. If you want a quick lunch and enjoy authentic Greek food, then head to Lucky's.

Recommended to us by our local tour agent, the Souvlaki was awesome. Not expensive, very simple dining, but excellent food!

Lucky's is THE GO TO place for the best souvlaki/gyro in Santorini. Every year that i come here, they gyros are always the same quality, they never get it wrong. Best tasting food in town and so cheap. Just walk past and see how busy they are - its for a very good reason!

We stayed in Santorini for 4 days and we were at Lucky's Souvlaki's for food every time we were in Fira! We heard great things about this place from friends who have traveled to Santorini, but what we didn't realize was how AWESOME LUCKY IS. Yes, the owner's name is Lucky and he's pretty much always there. It's so refreshing that he enjoys what he does and that he's passionate about meeting his customers. He walks around making sure you're okay, singing, and chatting it up. During our first time eating there, we told him it was a trip for my birthday and he came out with some birthday shots for me and my boyfriend. Talk about great hospitality! When we came back another day he remembered us and made sure we were enjoying our entire experience - we even ended up taking pictures with him.

As for the food, it lives up to the same standards of their hospitality. The fries in the gyros were crispy, and gyros are made to order. It's a small place so it can get pretty busy and cramped at times but be patient, the food and the wait is worth it. If you get a chance, make sure you talk to Lucky and get to know him, he'll make your experience worth it! I can't wait to go back to visit when we're in Santorini again.

THIS IS A MUST TRY!!!

When we came in here for the first time, the extremely happy (drunk?) man working the register said, "You must try the best food in Santorini!" We weren't sure about that claim, but we figured we'd give it a whirl. Well, he was right. This was literally the best food we had on our 2.5 week trip through the Greek islands, including the meals we had in 4- and 5-star restaurants, and it is a little hole in the wall. The rest of the trip we kept saying, "how does this compare to Luckys?" and nothing ever came close.

As I mentioned, the man at the register is a little goofy, but if you don't mind that, you will be in for amazing food. The man cooking is incredibly hard working; we came in two more times in our two days there and he was always over the grill; he told us he puts in about 9 hour days and that the heat is more than double that of what it is outside as he stands over the grill. Wow! I give him major kudos for that. The Greek islands are scalding in July!

The food is incredible - there is not much to say other than that. Try it and you'll be hooked. The pitas, so perfectly grilled and crispy. The meat - NO fat, perfect combo of crispy and meaty. The tzatziki, tomatoes, greens, everything fresh and in the perfect proportions. Prices are great.

Have some Luckys for us! We miss it too much.
