We ordered “The Classic Gyro” combination plate and asked if it was a pita with a side Greek salad and pita tips. Lady said yes, then we got a plate that was more like a Greek/Chinese fusion dish on a bed of strange rice.

Great place for lunch. Gyros are loaded with meat and the closest thing to authentic that one can find.

I decided to give this place a try during my stay in Huntsville based on a recommendation from a coworker. The gyro plate is huge with gyro, salad, rice, and pita bread. I was very impressed! Total cost with drink was approximately $16. Highly recommend!
