I can safely say that every thing on the menu is great. I highly recommend the Gyros as it is fresh and huge portions of meat.

Since 1994 this place has been at this very congested corner next to the always crowded In n' Out Burger. I hadn't been here in years so I stopped by to try something for lunch. I ordered the gyro sandwich combo because the Greek owners daughter (cashier) suggested it, glad she did and they use their own house made yogurt... More

Everything was good with one exception. he cooks should understand that if an Avocado is spoiled and they wouldn't eat it, they probably should throw it away instead of hiding it in our Burritos.

Stopped in recently for a pastrami and fries with my teen age daughter. Fries were crispy and golden, not limp like some take out places. Pastrami was lean and plenty of meat for the same price as The Hat which left me hungry because the sandwich was so skimpy. Fountain soda and Orange Bang! For a cheap and fast alternative... More

Pharos is a great little place that serves more than burgers. Gyros, breakfasts, dinner plates, etc. A true blue collar eating establishment. Great food, and the staff is exceptionally polite and attentive.

Great little place, always clean and help is always friendly, the owners/brothers, Taz and Bill are the best. Hamburgers are very good as are the Chicken Sandwiches and the Chicken Teriyaki. I haven't found anything here that I didn't like.

The food is great. Everything I've had there becomes my temporary favorite, from the chicken dinner to the chili burger to the gyro sandwich. Orders of french fries, onion rings or fried zuchinni are overloaded for a very reasonable price. Service is always friendly and the quality is great. Can't ask for much more from a nice burger stand.
