Stopped in for a gyro and wife was initially disappointed that they did not serve lamb but was very pleased with her gyro with beef. My burger was quite good.

Had the Gyros Plate with Double Meat. Outstanding flavor, and well cooked. Tzatziki Sauce on the side, makes for a Top Notch take out. Friendly staff and cooks adds to the experience. Absolutely recommend.

Constantly good fast food gyros. Other choices to include: Chicken, Ribs, Smelt, multi variety of Gyro servings. Only item not worth the purchase: their Greek Salad. To plain no flavot

Kosta's is our go-to spot any time we crave gyros. It is always fresh, fantastic portion, and reasonably priced. Occassionally we have had a couple other items from the menu and all have been good, too. Highly recommend!

This place never disappoints. From their gyros to their chicken and their yummy potatoes. You really can't go wrong with anything off the menu. The place is always clean and busy. I look forward to coming here when I'm in the area to see family.

Nothing like a spit of lamb roasting at Kosta's to make my mouth water. This place is on my list of MUST visits whenever I am in the area! If you like gyros you will be pleased....If you do not, this place just may change your mind!

Food is good and portions are big. Gyro is very good and piled high with meat. The burgers and chicken are char-grilled and tasty. Soups also very good. Only knock is the place is usually busy so food delivery isn't always fast, but worth the wait.

Kostas has been around for several years and some things they do awesome, others just ok. Their burgers are great to say the least! They are big, juicy, and packed with goodness - add cheese and they are truly delicious! On the other hand, their gyros are good, but way too much onions and not enough gyro meat for our... More

Kosta's is a "fast food" place to get gyros sandwiches, salad, fries, grilled pork, potatoes, etc. The gyros were really good as was the grilled pork and potatoes. My pita break was a little undercooked, and the service was way too slow (took about 25 minutes), but it was worth the wait if you aren't in a hurry.

Outstanding Greek fast food with some the best and biggest Gyros in the area. Lots of other Greek specialties to offer too. Highly recommended.
