We love the food choices on their menu. Every time we've visited and tried a different dish, we have not been disappointed. The humus is an all-time staple on their menu and will please any palate. We highly recommend trying Makarios for lunch or dinner.

We came here hoping to find food comparable to Detroit and Dearborn. We were really surprised, this place is legit! If you are looking for good hommus, schwarma, and tawook.. this is your place! Thanks for a taste of home!

Don't let the exterior fool you into thinking this place isn't good. We found all the food wonderful. And the service was good too. We will go back next time we are in Birmingham. Thank you for the most wonderful grilled vegetables!

Really delicious. Middle eastern music. Quiet, intimate. Good service. All around 5 star. I'd eat here again tomorrow if I was staying longer.

Went here seeking vegetarian options for my sister. She enjoyed the spinach pies and grape leaves, as well as the falafels. I ordered a shish kabob with grilled veggies. Overall a good experience

I have had lunch at Makarios twice in 10 days. I could only wish more trips to Birmingham so I could eat my way through the entire menu. The stuffed grape leaves with meat are as good as my Lebanese grandmother used to make. I...More

Tried this place on our visit to Birmingham on May 24, 2017. We ate lunch and had a salad, chicken with hummus, a gyro and a Philly cheesesteak. The food was super yummy. The Philly cheesesteak didn't look like it would be that good, but...More
