Food is good and quantity is awesome. The only drawback they just take the cash. My personal fav - chicken sheek kabaab. The service is fast and as its in the Univ square during the weekend its like jam packed as its opened like 2am.

This is how fast food should always be! I hadn't been here since the early 90's, but I will be back soon. The gyros are fantastic, soft pita bread piled high with tasty gyro meat. They give you a bottle of cucumber sauce to use...More

Probably the best value in a Mom and Pop ethnic food restaurant in Milwaukee. I go back and forth between the Oakland Ave and Layton Ave locations. I think they're both great with a little broader menu at Layton. There is a standard burger and...More

The food is really bad but it's a good solution late at night. It's kind of cheap and they serve different kinds of food. Go only when it's the only restaurant open in the area.
