Friends highly recommended this place, so tried carry out for first time today. Food: sandwhich good, pita chips good. Prices reasonable. Service was pretty quick - no wait when I stopped in. Bad - ordered sandwhich without onions or pickles. Came with both. That's something...More

Larsa's is the real deal. Every time I am in Elgin, I take the opportunity to stop here for the gyro meal. Everything is freshly prepared. The fries appear to be double fried and are among the best I've had. The gyro is tender and...More

Awesome fries, gyros and salads. Friendly service in clean facility. Don't let the fact this is located in a gas station put you off. Food tastes awesome!

You have never tasted such flavorful rice, pita and Mediterranean dishes! We returned for a second time to have their famous lentil soup, tabouleh salad and beef shawarma. The simple tables in a separate room beside the gas station was an easy place for children...More

We went in not knowing what to order. The woman who took our order was patient with us while helping us to make choices. We were greatly satisfied with her recommendations. She really listened to our preferences. We will go back again.
