It was hard to find this place on TripAdvisor because they don't have a "Mediterranean" category for restaurants in Lubbock. (If so, our decision would have been easily made!). We were in town for lunch on a Monday and it's hard to find a place...More

Friendly, quiet, good food, large portions, no frills. We came for an early dinner on a Saturday, it was quiet and service was fast and friendly. The food was simple, well prepared, and tasty.

Tried my first shawarma, it was excellent. Family had gyros and the fries were very good. The man who ran the place was friendly. We'll be going back. Hours are limited, be on time, it's worth it.

The best gyros. The meat was succulent and delicious. The sauce was spot on. We also enjoyed the dolmas. For a town known for Buddy Holly and BBQ, this restaurant was a very nice diversion. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

I had the Gyro plate (Kronos) and my wife had the Chicken Shawarma. It's a basic Mediterranean (Lebanese) menu. However, the food is very good and priced reasonably. My wife went on and on how good the rice tasted. The owner is a true gentleman...More
