Best gyro I've ever had and believe me, I've had quite a few! Have only had carryout. Coworkers also raved about the Grilled Brisket Monster. Discovered this place a month ago and have already had carryouts three times!

Although this place has been around and received good reviews we had yet to eat there. Our first visit was an early dinner stop so they were slow at the time. The waiter did a good job with our drinks and explained the specials. We...More
