Great fresh gyros to eat in or take out. Very authentic old fashioned snack bar feel. My favorite is the chicken. Right off the grill in a warm pita and oozing with Tzaziki sauce.

We enjoyed the green lemonade, grilled cheese, fries and the seafood platter. The hummus looked delicious and you can tell by how busy they are that the local population enjoys it too. Staff is very hard- working and they get your order out promptly. The menu has so many selections!

I stop in after work once in a while for a gyro.The best in town.I haven't tried the philly cheese yet but I will next time. (I still miss the Eastside Pubs Philly Cheesesteaks) Keese's is nothing fancy but the gyros are very good. The service could be better though.

The food is horrible. The service is pathetic and sadly they must have thought we were tourists instead of ft laud locals. They tried to over charge us. We challenged and the begrudgingly amended. There is much better Mediterranean food around unless you have been at the beach all day and have had at least a 6 pack of Heineken.... More

Although it has a wide variety of food offerings, we go back for it consistently for Philly Steak Sandwiches. It is a diner style place with limited inside and a few tables outside, by the street. They do a lot of take-out. Fine dining it is definitely not, but if you want some satisfying, good tasting food, this is the... More

My husband and I were walking by and I saw a couple outside and asked how was the food. They told me they were known for their chicken, and their Greek dishes were delicious. A few days later my husband and I decided to try it out. It's very small, on s side street off of commercial.they have seating outside... More

I ordered take-out, as I was in a rush. The grilled chicken pita was phenomenal! So much flavor. The tzatziki sauce was one of the best I've had. Going there for dinner tonight with friends.

This is the best place ever. EVERYTHING you order is amazing, the size of the menu for the size of this place is crazy. We order probably twice a month and can't say enough good things about Keese's. You are definitely missing something if you are not going here or ordering. Stop by on your way to the beach....

We always try to eat here at least once when we are in Lauderdale by the Sea. The kebobs and falafel are both good. All the platters are large enough to bring home leftovers.
