After our daughter's graduation from Asbury University, 7 of us, including the graduate, enjoyed a delicious dinner and friendly service. They were able to accommodate several food sensitivities - including both gluten and dairy.

I will never eat a Gyro anywhere else again. This family has brought something very special to the Lexington area via three locations. Their humble start in Chevy Chase has flourished. Their entrees and sides are all fabulous and the bakery items are to die...More
