This is a tiny little place (seating for maybe a dozen good friends) that offers great take out for Middle Eastern fare, although, there don't seem to be any Middle Eastern people around. Especially good are the pita pockets! When you buy this item in a grocery store, you need to cut it sideways to make the pocket for filling. At What About Kabob you get the real deal which you can wrap around whatever filling you want. Yummy stuff served by fun guys.

If you go anytime near lunch, expect a line! The food is excellent and the staff seems to have a good time, making the environment welcoming.

As you zip down the loop glance over and if the open sign is on, STOP. This little tucked away restaurant is wonderful. The food is always fresh and wonderfully seasoned. We love the OG. The staff is friendly and will help you order. Outstanding food at a great price. Only complaint is that they don't seem to keep to keep regular hours some days.

Good food, and the owners are super nice. The OG is served on fresh bread/pita, and is very filling.

I enjoyed this place. The energy inside was good along with the staff, they were nice and friendly. The Gyro was tasty and the pita was nice

The good:
- Gyro meat seemed spicier than other places I have tried. Not crazy spicy, but enough to notice a little tingling on your lips - this is the perfect amount of spicy-ness for me, as it always makes me smirk.
- Gyro meat was tender and not greasy
- Pita bread was firm and seemed very fresh made that day.
- Fresh, tzatziki

The bad:
- The pricing was high considering the quantity of food.. The gyro is $8, which is not expensive but that is not cheap either, especially considering it was not stuffed to the gills with gyro meat. And to add fries for $2? Drink another $2. Would have been happier with more gyro meat and cheaper/fewer fries. ($34.21 for 3 people)
- While the gyro meat was spicy and the tzatziki tasted very fresh and yogurty/cucumbery, other spices seemed to be missing. Dill? Garlic? ... Where are you my friends?
- It took 20 minutes to make 3 gyros (when you have 1 hr. For lunch you're pushing it to get back)
- The seating inside is kind of cramped and the garbage can was about 10 feet away, and every time someone opened it to put some trash in the smell almost killed you, please clean your can!LOL or put open ones @ both sides front and back.

I wanted to like this place, but other food places have managed to wow me recently and this one did, but, not as much. Maybe they are still working out the kinks - to be fair it opened a few months back.

We shall return.?!?. We'll see.
