“Five Opa's”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We ate here months ago, and found it good, but not great. They have stepped it up and get five stars from us. They put up a wall, blocking off half the kitchen..........a nice touch from before. And the food also stepped it up a notch or two.
We just had the gyro's, but they are the best we have found in Sarasota, and we have tried quite a few. First, the bread is fresh, nicely grilled, and delicious. The lamb is delicious, and plentiful. And the tzatziki sauce was delicious. And, they don't stuff it full lettuce like some joints do.
We had fries as a side...........not a great choice. Frozen.......but, not awful....but, obviously, fresh is better.
Service was good, and fast.............and the prices are very reasonable.
Have lots more choices for next time. The gyro platter looks good; gyro, rice, feta, tomatoes, kalamata olives..........my wife wants the lamb souvlaki platter.........lamb skewers with with onion on pita, and rice and tzatkiki. Burgers, salads, and hot dogs too...........but, get real, it's a gyro joint..........
Nice spot, nice meal, happy campers.

“Hidden surprise”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

Gyros were great, the prices are fair, especially for the quality of the food. The interior is clean, but rather sparse in decor. However, the flavor and quality of the food more than makes up for the decor.

“FINALLY!... a great gyro option!”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

We regularly crave a good, reasonably priced gyro and have not found many options since moving to the area. So glad we found this "great food - hole in the wall'! The atmosphere is nothing to get excited about, but the gyros sandwich was absolutely delicious and the fries were not at all greasy. We will definitely make this our regular stop for gyros and will also look forward to trying other items on the menu.

“Best Food I've ate in years!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I've lived in Sarasota all my life and I fell in love with this place. Best service and atmosphere you can get for a small business and don't get me started on the gyros I have yet to find a place better than them! I highly recommend I feel like in part Greek when going there to eat!
