We were here twice over the weekend. My daughter loved the chicken Caesar pocket. I loved the falafel and grape leaves. The gyro was not the best I've had but good. There is a counter with chairs and booths in the back but most people ordered their lunch to go. The line moves quickly and served with a smile. It was quick food and very yummy.

Very nice quick lunch wraps if you like gyros, kabobs, hummos and other greek sandwich food.

I have been there twice and neither time had a line - but I think that is because we were there off peak. I think if there was a line on a busy night it would be a slightly different experience. But from my experiences the food was good, staff helpful and friendly and bathroom clean.

This is a counter service restaurant on a bustling street in a college neighborhood. One person goes through the line at a time, and food is prepared fresh.

The restaurant features wraps on pita bread or "plate" meals on jedra rice (with lentils -- delicious!). Fillings for either the wraps or the plates include falafel, grilled chicken, and gyro. There are other options as well. Toppings include salad ingredients, pickles, hummus, tahini, tzatziki, and more.

A wrap or a plate is more than enough food for an adult dinner. We often order 4 plates for our family of 6 (including children).

You can dine in -- there are a number of small tables. There are many options for bottled beverages. Beware, no tap water is served (my only criticism).

All in all, this is a terrific choice for a very casual meal. Food is fresh, cooked well, and you can make healthy choices. Prices are about $9/person without beverages.

We both ordered the falafel wraps with everything on them. Great price and great serving size. It had lots of flavor. We also ordered fries. I would come back.

Bountiful pockets filled with your choice of gyro, chicken kabob, falafel, etc. Quick, hot, tasty and priced right. Delicious baklava too! Convenient to Brown.
