This is an old pizza hut that has been recycled. The bathrooms could use some remodeling but the food I ordered was delicious and the service was good.

Been by this place many times and finally decided to stop to get a gyro. Friendly staff, dining room in fair condition. Prices were normal. Got a gyro and fries and the gyro meat was probably the worst I've ever seen. It was dry, as if they shaved it hours earlier, but it was only noon and it was luke-warm.... More

The sign on the outside of the building advertised a $1.99 breakfast so I stopped in. A little hole in the wall establishment can sometimes be a diamond in disguise but not this place. Upon entry it smelled musty. It was one of those places where you give your order when you enter at the cashier and then they bring... More

I was at the valley city festival and standing in line for a Gyro when I thought I would skip the line and just stop by here on the way home so I wouldn't have to wait. Ordered a Jumbo Gyro and fry and sat down. There was a family of four who was ordering when we came in. About... More

The restaurant is not much to look at, but get past that and enjoy the gyros! Place a take out order and pick up at the window. Service is friendly and quick. Great to pick up and take home for a last minute dinner idea.

We used to love Double Tyme in Akron but since they closed we have tried to find a gyro just as good. Famous Gyro George was as close as you can get. The meat is cooked just perfect and the cucumber sauce was delicious.

Pretty good location on main street. Gyros are the item to get. Have had breakfast there but it is better at home. They have raised the prices on the Gyro special twice in the last 2 years. It used to be an excellent deal on Tuesdays 2 for 5, then 2 for 5.99, now it is 2 for $6.99. Kept... More

Gyro's are extremely good here and affordable. The staff is always friendly. The breakfast menu is cheap and taste great. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a great gyro or a breakfast. Love that they have dinning in and a drive through window
