They win the best Greek food award every year and there's a reason why. The food here is first rate. The Chicken Shish Kabob is absolutely delicious. I don't know how they can make grilled chicken so moist and tasty. You have a choice of fries, rice or salad with each dish. All are very good. Prices are very reasonable... More

We stop here often when in Milwaukee. They have a great Gyro. The combo comes with fries and a soda for 10 dollars. The Gyro is a large serving stuffed with meat. A friend had the Chicken Gyro and thought it was just average. Today the onions and sauce had a little less zest than normal. If you like gyros... More

I have eaten here so many times and each time is just as good as the first. I have never had another chicken gyro this good, the platter is fabulous so much food you definitely get what you pay for. Anytime of day or night this place hits the spot!

I have visited this place for years and they always deliver - quick and friendly service and just great gyros. Have also occasionally tried the dolmades (good) and chicken kabob but my main stay is the gyros. My only advice is when you get the platter, get an extra pita and you'll have enough to share with another person.

Food is good and quantity is awesome. The only drawback they just take the cash. My personal fav - chicken sheek kabaab. The service is fast and as its in the Univ square during the weekend its like jam packed as its opened like 2am.

This is how fast food should always be! I hadn't been here since the early 90's, but I will be back soon. The gyros are fantastic, soft pita bread piled high with tasty gyro meat. They give you a bottle of cucumber sauce to use as much or as little as you like. My daughter tried the Athenian Chicken which... More

Probably the best value in a Mom and Pop ethnic food restaurant in Milwaukee. I go back and forth between the Oakland Ave and Layton Ave locations. I think they're both great with a little broader menu at Layton. There is a standard burger and fries menu but the Greek dishes are what makes a visit worthwhile. If you've never... More

Interesting place, where you can do laundry, walk through and order food, walk through again and order a beer to bring back to your food table. But the gyros, OMG, moist, hot and lots of sauce to squirt on your sandwich. I know I will be dreaming about this place for years to come. Do not miss eating here!

I have been going for 20+ years and this place is still amazing. The service is excellent. It is a crowded bar time food place and they have their systems down to a tee and you don't mind their quick and efficient system. Also, their food is extremely consistent. You know exactly what you will get each time and it... More
