Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife ordered the lamb chops. It came with 4 meaty chops in a brown sauce a vegetable and fries. I ordered a gyro plate. The Gyro was on a flat pita bread and had finely chopped onions, feta cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and meat. The traditional gyro white sauce and a separate olive oil and rosemary sauce were provided on the side. A wide selection of alcoholic drinks are available here. I recommend dining here.
