Great food. We don't understand why the "gyros" are so much less expensive than the "burritos" and wraps. They are just as big and plenty of food. Service is what it is....simple but a little disheveled as the cashier seems to have multiple duties and can sometimes be harried. The drink service is slow and a little backwards. Overall, the food is great and the quality good. Always a good choice.

While i love the concept of the fresh food, I use to eat here every day because they had a great fresh product and wonderful sides. For some reason, they have changed their sides up and they are terrible. The "potato salad" has been changed to a non pork German style that tastes more like rosemary infused sweet and sour mixture poured over soggy potatoes and tastes like hell. Unless you want cous cous or yogurt, really, the side are terrible and are about the last things parable with wraps. I have personally mentioned this to numerous management and staff to no avail-one said "the owner like it"--well, the owner isn't the customer and until they change the sides, I will not be back. I understand mayonnaise may not be preferred, but, yogurt or low fat sour cream could be substituted in the potato salad. Also, their sales counter is way too cluttered.

This place is ridiculously good, but the prices are hard to justify. The sandwiches are always very full of meat and ingredients and the sides are plentiful as well. However it can easily reach up to $30 for two people for a quick midday lunch. My only drawback is the price- everything else is great.

I ate at the Folly Rd location and had a really nice wrap along with a salad. Everything tasted fresh well prepared. Lots of vegetarian options on the menu.

Tasty, local, great value and my fiance and i are not vegans or even close to it. Im addicted to the yogurt, which i have literally purchased 8lbs of in the past month. We takeout there 2 times a week and are happy to have them in our food rotation area.


Food poisoning? Give me a break... You probably got it from a door handle.
