This place is a bit of a hole in the wall located in a strip center and has been open since 1978! Most people would drive by it but I suggest stopping. The gyros are amazing and large. Italian beef was tender and juicy very...More

No frills family business with friendly staff. Excellent Vienna beef hot dogs and gyros with fair prices.

You won't be impressed by the decor or location, given that The Works is nestled within a random strip mall and has an "old diner" feel...somewhat run down and old fashioned. However, the food, particularly the gyro plate and sandwich, are definitely the best in...More

Nothing fancy but good portions and good food. I had the gyro with the works. Pita bread was excellent, so much meat, good tsatski too. My husband had the polish dog with the works. We were happy campers. Can see why this place was hopping....More

This place has it all. I ordered the gyro sandwich and it was delicious and very flavorful. I can only imagine how good the other food on the menu are. They are fast, efficient, cheap and great service all together. It definitely is "THE WORKS"

I think we eat here once a week. The soup is homemade and delicious. I always get the half chicken. It comes with fries, cole slaw and garlic bread. It's usually enough for two, for which my spouse is grateful.

This was our second time here. We went for lunch on my birthday and it was very busy. I had a craving for a Chicago style hot dog--and it was one of the best I've eaten! My friend had the gyros sandwich. He couldn't stop...More

Tried "The Works" because the place was recommended. Located in a strip mall with easy parking. Dated interior decor with memorabilia photo wall. Perhaps that's the charm. Staff was friendly. Ordered and took your own food to the table. Fast service. We ordered the 1...More
