What a great little place. Our Big Papa Gyros were delicious: the tzaziki sauce was thick & flavorful-not to mention the crispiest potato wedges as a side. But the biggest surprise...the mango/peach smoothie!! Customers were coming & going with them, so we had to try one. So glad we did. Will not disappoint.

I like the fact that Papa Gyro's has expanded its menu, but I find that when I order something that is not a gyro, that I don't like the entree. I ate there last night with a colleague who had the gyro and loved it and I ordered the moussaka and hated it. It was some of the worst moussaka... More

Had the lamb gyro with rice. It was really good! Stopped in to pick up to eat at the hotel. It was a little bit of a wait, but only because the customer in front of us had a big order. The gyro meat was really good, and not too spicy. The place is not much to look at on... More

The three of us had a very enjoyable lunch at Papa Gyro's. The owner is Iranian, so there are several Persian meal offered that are very tasty. The gyros are very good as are the other Mediterranean dishes. Non-alcoholic drinks are available ($1.99 each with unlimited refills). The styrofoam and plastic service items are a "downer." Otherwise, we liked the... More

They have really good gyro's. They slice the beef right off the shawarma so it is super tender! I would eat there again. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the atmosphere isn't that great because it is located in a strip mall. However there is some outside seating so that is nice.

There's no comparison between the Big Papa gyro wrap and that of an unnamed chain we recently tried. Big Papa's sauce is subtly spiced, not too garlicky or too strong. Their meat is thinly sliced & tender. Eating the filling & leaving the pita wrap makes for a feast on my low-carb days.

I know, I know, everyone in my family loves the gyro's and the gyro salad, but I love their hamburgers! Great soup too!

The Big Papa's gyro is a healthy, delicious, satisfying lunch in itself. We seek out Middle Eastern food wherever we travel, and this gyro was a perfect blend of gyro, veggies, herbs, & yogurt sauce. Surrounding chain restaurants were empty at lunchtime. Everyone was at Papa Gyro's!

I love the Gyros and the French Fries are the best I have ever had. They have a very large menu and something for everybody.

I visit papa gyros frequently, as I work nearby. Usually, they're friendly fast and delicious, but today my pina colada smoothie came up before my food and the lady who made it was very rude as she screamed "smoothie". She didn't even give me a chance to claim it before she screamed smoothie at the top of her lungs again!... More
