The best gyros in town. A bit different because the owners are mid eastern so seasonings are a bit different, no tsatsiki instead you get feta. The lentil soup is awesome. The star of the menu is the lamb shank. It is absolutely scrumptious! They are cooked to order so take a while but are well worth the wait. Service... More

The food is good and the price is equal to any seat down restaurant in town. A little more staff help would have made this place a 5 for me!

Some of the non traditional twists on menu items are not a home run. Marinara sauce on spanakopita? Ok....but better without it or on the side, not smothered.

Food is amazing - Sundays are the best for those who want to try many dishes at once- my fav- Cheese Burak, the best falafel

Finding good food was a challenge for me in Dekalb, until I tried this place. Love love the kebabs. Highly recommend

This place has wonderful stuffed grape leaves and the lamb shank and gyros are fabulous. The only thing that we have tried and not cared for is the Musakaa (fried eggplant appetizer) and it was just covered in too much olive oil and was unappetizing.

Omar's grill is back! We had a DELICIOUS meal tonight. We had stayed away because of the fire problem in the building next door, but today, no more musty smell! He's got a great new twist on the rice with our kebabs, and the lentil soup was amazing. We love supporting this excellent small business in downtown DeKalb.

Mediterraneo Grill is a nice little restaurant in downtown Dekalb, and the service is great, but the food -- not so much. The little pizza I ordered last night was tepid at best and the cheese barely melted. For the price, very disappointing.

This was a spontaneous first visit and the three of us were delighted to taste that the chef knew to balance his spices in an authentic harmony of flavors across several dishes. We found the lentil soup a special treat. The samosas had balanced taste and just the right size and texture. The beef and chicken kabobs on rice were... More

Yum x a b'jillion! Everything is good! ....the best way to try most of the food is when they have the Sunday brunch/Buffet!
