I was waiting in line - only have so much time for lunch! - woman - owner maybe?? - called out to two good looking men to come up next - even though I was standing in front of her - obviously men rate higher than women here! Finally walked out!

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? But the real problem was my wife's Greek salad and pita. The pita seemed microwaved and tasteless. The salad was some lettuce, onion and very little... More

My niece took my daughter to this cafe and she has fallen in love with the gyros. We live near Victoria but whenever we are in town for a hockey tournament we ALWAYS stop by for our fill of gyros :) We are very pleased to find out they have a food truck and were recently at an event we... More

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

We went in to try out the donairs being someone who is quite familiar with the donair I might add. Specify if you want a gyro or a donair so once I got to try the donair sauce I was impressed. If there were to be a complained it would be the seasoning factor is lacking a little but other... More

Just stopped in for a quick bite to eat using a coupon. I had a craving for a Gyro and that tangy Tzatziki sauce. We were not disappointed. Evan had a second one, ate it so fast I forgot to take a picture. Topped it off with a Baklava, Yummmy Off the beaten path but we will be back. Good... 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!

It was expensive, for a soggy gyro that didn't have much meat and served by a rude employee! Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this place or return.
