We ate lunch here on a two day stay. By far the best gyro I have had since leaving Europe. They were real gyros with beef and lamb cooked on a spit and shaved off. Small but worth the trip in for a excellent gyro.

Before a show at Push Comedy, our friends suggested this restaurant. Easy walk from NEON district (Norfolk's new ARTS district) to this stand alone humble building next to the Greyhound Bus Station. That being said, this will be our go-to before events at Chrysler Hall...More

The food is really good with decent prices. The thing that I didn't like about this place was the cashier tried to over charge me, then when I confronted him about it he blamed it on being tired and saying they've been busy all day....More

Don't let the outside looks fool you. It may seem like a hole in the wall place, but I've had several great meals here. The kebabs are off the chain! Great prices for the amount of food, and top notch service.

This restaurant may serve one of the best gyros in town. Off-street parking. This is a small family restaurant which I think seats about 40 people. No alcohol. Excellent for lunch and late lunch but closes early so it's not really a dinner spot.
