Good food. Disappointed to see the grape leaves are sold cold and without lamb meat. No lamb options. No tabouli. Was hoping for more Lebanese food as the owner is Lebanese.

This place has plenty of vegetarian options and has a great offering of many types of gyros. Perfect for a quick meal without the cheapened casual dining feel. Clean and open dining room separate the Rock from most eateries in Uptown.

This place is clean and well priced with good selection of sandwiches. We had the Gyros Combo which was a good portion and really tasty .

We go here for lunch from time to time. The food is very good and there is seating inside and out. Its a good place to go when you want something different than "the usual" but you still need casual and quick.

Great location in uptown Normal. Just a few doors down from the Normal Theater, and within a 5 minute walk of the beautiful uptown Normal park and train station. Small, expanded location...well designed. I would consider a fast/casual restaurant. Food is served in baskets with...More

They advertise Mediterranean and American fares, but really they serve fast food to a captive audience. You can walk 1 block to the university, so it's premium retail space. I had a gyros special which includes fries and a fountain drink, for $9 & some...More

We came late, in the last open hour. We had no issues getting hot food super quick, and enjoyed the fine meal. We also enjoyed trying out the Pepsi drink machine, and have only seen Coke machines before!
