This is simple food ordered at the counter and delivered to your table. The food is good and the service prompt. Recommended.

Order from menu on wall above cashier- food selection limited and no lamb choices! Plates were small, but food is good.

My family, my son 17 years old, my daughter 15 years old and my wife ??? years old, have been eating here ever since it opened. Always really good food and reasonably priced. Pretty good service but sometimes a little slow...just minutes not hours longer than expected so not too bad! Friendly service and again pretty darn good food! I... More

I picked up two Gyro plate take-outs for dinner. The Gyro was dry and seemed a bit over-cooked. I spent $20.00 on the two plates and we could not eat the Gyros because they were dried out and crusty. We threw the food over the fence to the coyotes. I called the restaurant and talked to the Manager. He took... More

The falafel is frozen, and not made here. I guess, bring a franchise, I should have expected as much. Falafel plate comes with six patties, but only four pieces of pita. I had to order a "side" of pita bread to have bread with each falafel patty. There should be fewer patties, or more pita. This visit the falafel were... More

You don't get fresh food it's all shipped in and heated up. The Lemon Chicken soup was pretty good (small bowl) but the fire roasted veggies are a joke! Wait staff unprofessional and sometimes rude.

Daphne's chain is good. The food is tasty and not expensive, sort of a fast food take on Greek....except in Santee. I have no idea why it takes them so long to throw together a sandwich from ready ingredients and get some fries done, but it takes longer to get food here than it does in many of the neighboring...

Stopped in at Daphne's to get a take out dinner. We called our order in ahead of time so it was ready when we arrived to pick it up. Everything was hot, fresh and tasty.

We're regulars at this Daphne's. My wife and I both always buy the soup while there. Good salmon as well. This particular location has always treated us well. They seem to have good staff in general and we enjoy the outside eating area in particular.

It has been at least a decade since I've eaten at a Daphne's, but we were due for a change. Is the chicken in the various types of 'sandwiches' supposed to be burned? It was. Next time, both my wife & I will get the salad dressing on the side. Way too strong. In spite of that, we enjoyed the... More
