Overall: 3.9 (Michelle: 2.5, Joe: 4, Devan: 4.5, Rayza: 4.5, Peter: 3, Dan M.: 4, Lauren: 3.5, Danielle: 4.5, Eva: 3, Brian: 4, Ariel: 5, Stefanie: 4.5)
Taste: 4.3 (Michelle: 3, Joe: 4.5, Devan: 4.5, Rayza: 4.5, Peter: 3.5, Dan M.: 4, Lauren: 3.5, Danielle: 4.5, Eva: 5, Brian: 4, Ariel: 5, Stefanie: 4.5)
Proximity: 10-15 minute walk
Menu: Pretty good selection, but not a lot of veggie options
Price/Value: $7-11. A lot of lunch specials for relatively cheap. Platters were a bit more expensive but a ton of food – more than one meal’s worth.
Service: Awesome service – both efficient and friendly. Speedy, but doesn’t feel like an assembly line.
Freshness/Quality of Ingredients: Overall pretty good. The green beans tasted canned, but the cucumber salad was very fresh. Meat and bread were pretty good.
Taste/Flavor: Gyro meat was delish, but not quite up to snuff when compared with Food Corner. The cucumber salad had lots of fresh cucumbers, tomato, fresh dill, and lots of feta cheese. The lamb was very tender. The baklava was “the best ever” – tasted like liquid, crunchy butter. The daily special (artichoke hearts with pork shoulder in a cream sauce) was incredibly tasty. The pastitstio tasted “like heaven.” The orzo that accompanied most platters was a bit on the greasy side, but still tasty. Only real complaint was with regard to the falafel, which was described as “dry and crumbly.”
Pros: The gyro held together well, service included lots of character and humor, pre-made deli items available for purchase in store area of restaurant.
Cons: Too few veggie options, no seating available except for outdoor, it is quite a hike on a hot day.
