Tried this for a 2nd time, thinking 1st time was a fluke, and still found it was nothing to write home about. ...only this time I tried it at the south end art hop. One of the guys working there was so dirty, I got kind of grossed out. 2 falafel balls smashed down to cover pita and the tzaziki... More

Have gone by multiple times without going in. Got a gyro on a pita bread, only one between my wife and I, just in case. Yes, waited a bit longer that we should have, yes it was a bot more expensive that it should have been, this is downtown Burlington, after all! It was tasty, gyro meat was well cooked... More

Stumbled into Ahli's after walking around the Burlington farmers market. I asked Ahli to make a slightly off menu Souvlaki sandwich...and he killed it! Fresh crispy pita, perfectly marinated lamb, feta cheese and Greek dressing with the toppings. He's serious about his food and menu and it shows. There's lots of great restaurants in Burlington, but you gotta stumble and... More

Ordered two kabobs, both had wonderful flavor. Of course, we had to wait more than 15 minutes and remind them of our order to actually receive the food. This was par for everyone in the restaurant.

Consistently tasty pita sandwiches and various fried foods. Good value. A real hole in the wall and not the cleanest of places. Counter service is colorful, informal, efficient.

Find this hot spot at the end of Church St tucked away to the right. This place prepped the grill up and put together hot and fresh Gyros that pleased and filled us up!

This place is amazing, one of my favorite eateries in Burlington hands down. Everything is delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely stop by if you want a fantastic Gyro or Fallafel.

So bad one in our party dubbed it awful falafel! It was dirty, the restroom didn't lock and was nasty, no napkins, out of tsatsiki as well as several other menu items. Named the kabob shop but maybe the pita pit would have been a better choice as everything is x served on pita bread, no sides no fries just... More
