Delicious gyros & Greek salad! I have only eaten at the restaurant once (which was fine) but we have used them to cater in lunches several times. It's delicious, reasonably priced and different from the "same ol thing". I recommend it!

Room was cold. Chicken soup was good , once you put salt on it. The lentil soup was hotter than some chili. Gyros you made yourself. Black olives with seeds in them. various Greek meats to put in Gyro. Could make own salad. Cold drinks, tea and coffee came with buffet. Rice pudding with cinnamon was dessert. Buffets usually are...

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and when I walked in, the place looked deserted: just a couple of customers (and 40 empty tables), an empty showcase and no employees. Turns out the lone employee was in the kitchen. The food (gyro, greek salad) were perfunctory at best, but the feeling of emptiness (stark white, unadorned walls, white floors, white tables... More

Thank you for your feedback. It is true that the space can feel empty, especially on a Saturday!! 99% of our business comes from the lunch crowd during the week. I'm surprised that you didn't see the homemade chocolate cake, homemade baklava, or homemade chocolate chip cookies in the display case. If you prefer to come when more of the... More

1/2 " thickness of meat in gyros, (app.. 6 layers). When I order a gyro, I expect it overflowing with meat. Spinach Pie? just spinach with dough. No feta. . Disappointed!

Stopped in last week to get some baklava. Scrumptious! Decided to try their once a month dinner buffet this evening. What a joke! Styrofoam plates, plastic utensils and a constant parade of empty serving dishes. One male employee was complaining that people were taking too much food. Really? It's a buffet. Never again. Oh, and the price with drink. $12.99!

Best Gyros in Riverside. A must stop on your visit to the USAF Museum. I live nearby (over 15 yrs) and make the purpose to have lunch there at least 3 or 4 times a month. Family run.

Things are not what they used to be. We have been many times in the past, but this most recent visit will be our last. It was actually an embarrassment to see the complete lack of professionalism. Every month on the first Friday, there is a Greek buffet. There is usually a good variety of offerings and most are very... More

We have eaten here several times feeling the food was passable. We attended the first Friday of the month on May 1st 2015. The atmosphere is unfriendly and needs so much work on the decorating. No touches of Greek . The amount of food put out was not adequate for the number attending. What happened was when they did finally... More

The food was good reasonable, and served promptly. The staff seemed eager to please and professional I feel it is vital to support local businesses.
