The gyro bread is soft and fresh, the lamb/beef was tasty and plentiful and the tzatziki was great. We will return for dinner. Popular for lunch. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry. We enjoyed the fresh looking decor.

Disappointing first visit. Gyros bread and salad were fresh; gyros lamb was cut thick, had no flavor and was served at room temperature. Tzaziki sauce was flavorless. We ordered a Moussaka to share and were served a one-inch by one-inch slice of moussaka amongst a...More
