You should know when you see a line almost to the door that there's going to be good food. Anytime I come to Huntsville I want to eat here. It is such a treat.

Excellent lamb gyros. Their salads are good. Their soup was awfully salty - not too yummy. I tried this place twice. The soup was a two spoons, then dumped. Gyros were excellent. Nice soft pita bread and good sauce with a good portion of vegetables.

Passing through town and found this place. Definitely worth the stop. Food was made fresh and everything our family of six tried was good.

Stopped here with a friend on his recommendation prior to hitting the golf course. The gyros was excellent. Loved the toppings as they come. Fries were good too. Service was quick even with a mad lunch rush going on for a Friday. We hope to definitely get back here the next time we are in Huntsville. Small thing...with Coke on... More

The food was good and fresh. I do think the falafel could have had more flavor. The main problem I had was the menu was unclear and somethings that were on the Internet menu were not on the store menu. I order a veggie gyro plate expecting greek style vegetables. I got veggie meat and rice, no vegetables at all... More

Had lunch with a friend. Ordered the traditional gyro plate which didn't disappoint. Plenty of food to satisfy even the biggest appetite. We started with a serving of Baba Ganoush which was tasty while the Spanakopita was so good we ordered a second helping. Try it you'll like it.

What a great little place. Our Big Papa Gyros were delicious: the tzaziki sauce was thick & flavorful-not to mention the crispiest potato wedges as a side. But the biggest surprise...the mango/peach smoothie!! Customers were coming & going with them, so we had to try one. So glad we did. Will not disappoint.

I like the fact that Papa Gyro's has expanded its menu, but I find that when I order something that is not a gyro, that I don't like the entree. I ate there last night with a colleague who had the gyro and loved it and I ordered the moussaka and hated it. It was some of the worst moussaka... More

Had the lamb gyro with rice. It was really good! Stopped in to pick up to eat at the hotel. It was a little bit of a wait, but only because the customer in front of us had a big order. The gyro meat was really good, and not too spicy. The place is not much to look at on... More
