The gyro and chicken pita are amazing. Fast service and always friendly. The owner is a local who supports the community too. Must check this place out.

I have been going to the Mad Greek since I was in grade school. The owner is often there himself working and overseeing daily operation. There is no better place to get a gyro in Orange County. Also try their deep fried zucchini with the traditional tzatziki cucumber yogurt dipping sauce. They have American food as well as Greek. Something... More

I used to take the bus to the beach to surf and on the way back stopped off at the Greek. Today we stopped in for a bite. This is a Greek place, with all the favorites. There is nothing on the Menu I don't like. I got to speak with Billy again today and he really is helpful if... More

We have eaten at the Baker Mad Greek many times but when we discovered the original Mad Greek we had to try it. All locations were sold off except this one & it's great Greek food. The Gyros & Souvlaki were very tasty & authentic. The sauces compliment the food nicely....zucchini was ok but everything else was fresh & yummy,... More

This is another one of those restaurants that my wife and I visit from time-to-time when we want to pig out. We go here to pig out on gyros. We've eaten at several establishments around SoCal that serve gyros, but this one seems to consistently be the best. Their bread is soft, warm and "good" chewy without being annoying, know... More

I have been coming here for at least 20 years. Love the Gyros and the Spanikopitas. The Greek salad is also great. It is a no frills place with Great food.

Very conveniently located on Beach Boulevard in Stanton (near Knott's). No better Gyros platter! The Gyros meat is genuine (on the rotisserie) and the French fries and Greek salad are truly great--totally fresh ingredients. In warmer weather, patrons can eat outside under a canopy of grapes vines and even pick and enjoy eating the grapes. My wife and I are... More

Gyros are excellent. Lots of meat and fresh vegetables. We also get the dolmades which are also very good but the freshness varies. Cute outdoor seating. We always sit outside because it is stuffy inside.

Service is supremely unspectacular even though it is really a fast good type restaurant. Their gyro, however, is large, incredibly delicious and reasonably priced. I've had it twice and I'd like to have it another 200 times . No longer the same owners as the Baker nor the Vegas locations and really quite a bit better than those. Dining room... More

On a trip to Death Valley, we stopped for a gyro at the Mad Greek Restaurant. It was probably the best gyro I've ever had. It was large, the meat tender and flavorful and the Greek yogurt topping just right. The restaurant itself was clean as were the rest rooms. I would definitely visit there again.
