Came into Tuscaloosa from out of town and ate lunch here. Service was friendly and the gyros were delicious. The steak fries weren't very warm, but the sandwich more than made up for it. Would visit again.

Saw this on TA, Looked at the menu online and decided to check it out, it was an easy walk from the Home2Suite hotel. Started off with a bloody mary for me, and my wife got their Moji-tea (had to record the ingredients as my wife insisted I should make these for her at home). Both drinks were excellent. Really...

We were in town visiting my son and dropping off my girls for swim camp. Decided to try the place out since it was Father's Day. They had craft beers from around Alabama and a few from Georgia and Louisiana. Good variety too. The hummus was great but you needed about twice the number of pita slices to be able... More

If you like gyros and hummus this is a great place. The gyros taste great and after you try the hummus most love it. The service is good, and it usually is full for lunch and dinner with a mix of business folks and students at lunch and families and students at dinner. Some good deals sometimes like buy one...

The service was decent although the it could have been a bit better in spots. Most in our party ordered one of the gyros and the general... More

Sometimes you wonder why a restaurant fails. It can be for lots of reasons of course but the quality of the food has to be #1. A gyro HAS to have wonderful bread. If not, we're already lost. Our bread was thick and Chewy. The meat was find and the sauce lacking. Come for the drinks.

Got some food to go. Between 3 people we split the roasted red pepper hummus, chicken Greek salad and a strak/chicken platter. All of it was very good. I would highly suggest the hummus.

Went on $5 Gyro day. 2 other people with me. I know its busy but it was like pulling teeth to get our drinks refilled. The manager actually filled our drinks once. We ordered 3 $5 gyros, and one to go. When my bill came it was $31. 5x4=20. We all had water. I didn't catch it till I got... More

The wait was a little long for the food but it was so amazing! Must try the Cajun hummus and steak gyro. The tomato basil soup was really tasty too.
