Stopped on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Menu on outside window was outdated so we had to change our order but enjoyed the falafels and hummus!

Good food. Disappointed to see the grape leaves are sold cold and without lamb meat. No lamb options. No tabouli. Was hoping for more Lebanese food as the owner is Lebanese.

This place has plenty of vegetarian options and has a great offering of many types of gyros. Perfect for a quick meal without the cheapened casual dining feel. Clean and open dining room separate the Rock from most eateries in Uptown.
