Superb middle eastern food in very large portions. Counter service is fast and friendly. Limited seating, but it's a short walk to a large park to enjoy a takeout meal. Vegan options are highlighted on the menu.

This is a good place to go when you want to sit outdoors. The food is tasty, and you are given generous portions. This was a first visit; there will be more.

As a delivery guy I eat lunch out 5 days a week and have many options but here in Avalon this is my favorite spot by far. Have had many menu items and have loved everything. From the garlic chicken to chicken souvlaki to the...hummus and the baba ganoush also dolma. Tasty Mediterranean done right. And customer service is second to none. The owner is always with a friendly greeting and treats his customers well. You must eat here😁More

Love this place! It’s fast food with a good size menu. I think most people call in their orders and for take-out but there’s indoor and outdoor seating. Food is ordered at the register and the cashier brings the meal to the table. We often...get the gyro meal served with seasoned fries and a fountain drink for around $9. The pita is loaded with meat and dripping wet with the white sauce. Excellent. I’ve had some other things but keep coming back to the gyro. This place continues to surprise us. There’s been a lot of upgrades to the inside. Food continues to impress. There is parallel parking in the front or the parking lot in back.More

Depending on whose cooking, and if they have fresh ingredients, can be amazing or not worth eating. Tried the quesadilla twice, first time it was a soup, second time it was great. Order gyros all the time, when the lamb is old is tastes terrible...and hard to swallow, however the fresh lamp tastes amazing. See if the food is fresh or not before you orderMore

This is a small little restaurant in Avalon Park. You can order take out or eat in. Their prices are very reasonable. The food is very good I am glad that it has a decent clientele in Avalon park. I get quick dinners there often.

After going out of our way to try this restaurant we left disappointed and without eating. We had found this restaurant by using another app called find me gluten free. They claim to have gluten free options, but if you have a medical need for...being gluten free this is not the place to go. They cross contaminate and don't seem to care to much about how that could make others sick as was evident by the comment of we can't clean everything for an order. I will say I didn't rate them as terrible as they did refund my money when I asked without hesitation. When seeking them out on trip advisor after our visit I see that they are under different ownership than before, so I feel this could be where the problem I experienced was not a problem before.More

We pick up lunch from Avalon Pockets fairly often and always love the hummus and chips. I enjoy their take on pita chips which are big fully pitas that are flash drive so they are crunchy but yet still soft at the same time. Pickup...lunch or eat there and you will get a good Mediterranean meal.More

We found the place on Restaurant.com We tired the deluxe plate which had salad, shwarma, chicken and beef patties, wonderful mound of saffron rice and lots of different sauces to dip in and fresh made pita breads with hummus and tachina to spread.

I often order the beef and lamb gyro meal with pita chips and hummus. It's my go-to comfort food. I've tried their kabobs--although flavorful, I am still sticking to my gyro. My husband doesn't have a taste for their classic hummus, but absolutely love their...other flavored hummus. I, on the other hand, will only order their classic hummus. Owner asked for feedback for preference of a smaller oz. hummus and I am for it! I like it when owners ask input from customers. It's the best way to obtain customer satisfaction and up the ante. Service is friendly. Meals are hot and fresh.More

If you find yourself in Avalon Park - Orlando, FL treat yourself the best gyro ever served. Avalon Pockets is a small dine-in and carry out restaurant that is very popular to those in the know. Don't forget the baklava, it is really special!

After living in Avalon Park for the past 4 years, we finally made our way into this little hole in the wall restaurant located in the heart of Avalon Park near Publix. The owner there Mamdou (hopefully I spelled it right) was so friendly and...it felt like I was walking in his kitchen. I ordered the Lamb Gyro which was absolutely fantastic! The meat was so tender and melted in my mouth. I ended up getting it with the combo meal, steak fries and a drink for under $7!!!! This place will definitely become our favorite spot in Orlando and I can only wish I would've walked into that place 4 years ago. Two thumbs way up for the food and service I received there....we can't wait to go back very soon!!!More
