Extremely overrated! The souvlaki is simple and good, but is it worth the wait?

The service and organisation is poor.
Go early (and usually not hungry) and you will eat.
Go towards 2 o'clock or later and you're likely to starve. Do not even think about taking the family (kids). You will regret it.
Probably the best of the 'easy' to find and central souvlaki places in Athens, but food is not about being tortured before you get served (especially in Greece). There are at least a handful of places with fantastic food and relaxing atmosphere nearby. Try the quieter streets and see where the locals eat.

I've heard that they make the best souvlaki in Athens, so I went there in January 2018. Very, VERY slow service, lot of people in line, poor variety of choices. Indeed, the meat was very pure, fine and well prepered. However, I would not rank it at the top.

Those gyros are really good for me. Maybe they don't looks amazing, but they are really tasty and simple. Little crispy pita, spicy meat, mmm ;o)
