“Great Greek food, fresh, fast and reasonably priced”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This has always been our "go to" spot for casual Greek/Mediterranean food, even though we drive 30-40 minutes from Rio Rancho to get it. It is right across the street (behind The Frontier) from UNM which makes it very convenient when visiting the university or attending Popejoy events. I love the Avgolemono soup with a Greek salad. The Gyro platter is also delicious and filling. For an appetizer, try the Saganaki (flaming cheese with pita bread). This is not a fancy place - it is very casual and the food is excellent.

“Another great meal.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

My past reviews of this place still hold true on our last visit. The food was excellent again. We especially enjoyed the Greek Dolmas (stuffed grapevine leaves) along with the pita plate. The food was so good that the wife suggested that if we were ever told by a doctor that we couldn't have sex, we would just eat here... Yeah, it's that good.

“Some good...”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The gyro and the falafel were both great. The hummus was bland despite the menu saying it was spicy. I've had tastier hummus from Walmart deli. The dolmas had a vinegar taste. I've never had Greek dolmas before, but an Iranian guy I used to work with would bring dolmas to work and it was much better.
There are a few more things on the menu I'd like to try but probably won't be back any time soon.

“Pretty quick on a Friday Night”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We had planned another dinner for our Friday night date, but remembered we hadn't been to Gyros in a while. Good pick! it was relatively quiet, and the food was excellent. We had the gyros plate, which is always great, and the chicken plate. The salads are always fresh and delicious. Iced tea refills were great. We weren't able to finish our meals, so we boxed the rest up and took some baklava home. The baklava is very good and a perfect treat for later in the evening!

“Very good greek food”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Work at UNM so we walk to this place frequently, probably at least once a month. Love the spanakopita and greek salad. Consistently good food and service at reasonable prices. Nice casual atmosphere near campus.
