Love the new site. Parking can be a little challenging sometimes, but not a reason to not eat here. Most food is above average, and if you’re eating in, there appears to be a nice selection of beers. Not bad for a “gyro place” Much...More

1st time visiting new location. Very nice, new, fresh atmosphere. I really enjoyed my Philly cheesesteak sandwich but my son’s burger was just ok. Seemed like a frozen patty from Costco. We will be back but won’t order a burger again.

The kind of Hot Dog the Chicago area is noted for. Steamed bun, relish, mustard, onion, pickle spear, tomato and sport peppers. Just needed a poppy seed bun to make it better. The fries were tasty. For a beverage, I had the watermelon tea; refreshing.

Less than average hot dog stand. Need to change their process. Very slow, above average price, less than average food.

The food is so good, and flavorful, and homemade at fast food prices. IF you grew up in Chicago area, you are familiar with Italian Beef Sandwiches and these are one of the best. Gyros, off the spit, not re-heated. Chicken gyros are also delicious....More

Kojaks is a great little eatery. It has a few tables and chairs, but their main business is carry out. They serve sandwiches, gyros, chicken kebobs, and deep fried oreos (amazing). The wait is sometimes a little long, but to defeat that, order ahead for...More

The is a typical burger/hot dog/gyros type fast food place. We like to take the kids to get hot dogs and fries, and I get a gyro. They have an extensive menu with something for everyone. There are some tables if you want to eat...More
