A sign reading cellphone free restaurant as you walk in. It didnt bother me. But some may not like that. Orderered 2 donairs they were mediocre. There is almost no selection for donairs. Not sure id visit again

the cell phone free sign is for my customers, It is a form of respect to other customers who are having lunch and getting away from business and all we ask is that if your phone rings to please take it outside and for the donairs there are 4 choices either Beef and lamb or chicken or beef or falafil....

My wife was wanting a gyro so we stopped in. We thought it was just a take out place but there is actually a few tables and counter space. It is not a fancy place by any means but everything was nice and clean and the people working there were friendly. The food they serve is very good and reasonably... More

I have been going here for years, the gyros are always excellent. The prices are good and the service is friendly. They have a frequent user card for a free gyros as well.

Was there for lunch today. Had never been. I had the beef gyros. It was quite good. The combo came with potato chips. Potato chips. You can do better than that. Something Mediterranean maybe?

Undercooked chicken and the owner had the audacity to argue with me, saying it's fine to eat. OK, well when I'm puking my guts out later tonight, you can come hold my hair back. Never again will either myself or my boss go back. You don't argue with your customers, period!!! Especially when you may have poisoned them. Enjoy the... More

This is almost like a fast food restaurant but with far better tasting food! It's a bit of a funky dive, and not many choose to eat here, but to take out. Don't know how they spice the beel/lamb gyro but it is soooo yummy!! I go every once in a while for a quick fix!
