This is one of the best Gyros I have eaten. The sauce was not overpowering and the spices just right. The chicken, beef, and lamb were delicious. The pita was just right. I would have like a larger gyro, but this one sure was tasty.

A low key place, simple diner atmosphere, but the food was really exceptional! Our server was also really kind and very accommodating - she found a way to create a lunch for me that included everything I wanted to try.

The meal is decently priced for what you get. It's a very casual spot that I like to stop at for a quick eat or for a cup of tea.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
