Have had a lot of gyros and these are the best I've had. Always very friendly and consistent with quality. Some unique options are available. Price is fair. Got to try it.

I had the gyro meat gyro. It was fresh and excellent. You have choices of types of protein and toppings. They also have a good selection of Greek dishes and fries. They staff was friendly. There is indoor and outdoor dining. It sits along the hike bike trail so you can walk off your meal.

This place has been renamed to Simple Greek, same great food, but upgraded! You can now order your favorite gyro in a bowl and eat it with a fork. My favorite is the chicken gyro grilled right in front of you! Great choices for my five year old who loves the chicken and rice. Bonus, this little place is right... More

I have had lunch and dinner here several times during the summer months. Not only is the food delicious, but you can enjoy your meal outside in a lovely outdoor seating area right off the Arrowhead Trail. The people who work here are friendly. You order at the counter and take a seat. If you are outside, they will find... More

I had the Greek Salad and it was very good but my husband had the Traditional gyro and oh, how I wish I had had it! It was excellent. Definitely will eat there again so I can have my own.

Gyros and gyro salad were both delicious. Have gotten them as take-out ~8 different times, and they are always a treat! The gyros are big enough that you can order a gyro and large greek salad and then split them both with someone else!

Closest gyro to a greek one since I was at Greece years ago. The only down side is the parking is a bit tight.

This is a fabulous place for getting a delicious gyro. The portions are quite plentiful, and delicious. They offer the normal gyro, as well as a chicken and steak version. I normally get a Veggie gyro, as the portion of meat they place on the regular is just too much for me...I'm content to just snag a few pieces of... More

My husband and I like to have a date once a week. We decided to try some gyros. We are always disappointed, until we came here. The wait was a little long, but worth it. The meat was plentiful and delicious. The atmostphere was casual and sweet. We were in a gazebo near a walking trail and a pond. They... More

Everyone always says that they are looking for an unpretentious local place with good, cheap food. This is it. It backs up to the Montour Trail so you can walk you way into being hungry or walk off your gyro. There's seating indoors and outdoors but the place is small inside. The gyros are huge. The food is always fresh.... More
