The three of us had a very enjoyable lunch at Papa Gyro's. The owner is Iranian, so there are several Persian meal offered that are very tasty. The gyros are very good as are the other Mediterranean dishes. Non-alcoholic drinks are available ($1.99 each with...More

They have really good gyro's. They slice the beef right off the shawarma so it is super tender! I would eat there again. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the atmosphere isn't that great because it is located in...More

There's no comparison between the Big Papa gyro wrap and that of an unnamed chain we recently tried. Big Papa's sauce is subtly spiced, not too garlicky or too strong. Their meat is thinly sliced & tender. Eating the filling & leaving the pita wrap...More

Papa Gyro's has a very nice selection of Mediterranean-type food. It is definitely not Greek...rather a mixture of Eastern Mediterranean combined with various Iranian dishes. They are all Very Good. The ordering process is quick and pleasant...the atmosphere is airy and clean...the price is okay.

I think they have very good Greek food. I go periodically to get my fix. I recently worked with some folks that were in town from DC. They were excited about getting to eat at Papa Gyro's again. I thought that spoke volumes! The food...More
