Stopped here with a friend on his recommendation prior to hitting the golf course. The gyros was excellent. Loved the toppings as they come. Fries were good too. Service was quick even with a mad lunch rush going on for a Friday. We hope to definitely get back here the next time we are in Huntsville. Small thing...with Coke on... More

The food was good and fresh. I do think the falafel could have had more flavor. The main problem I had was the menu was unclear and somethings that were on the Internet menu were not on the store menu. I order a veggie gyro plate expecting greek style vegetables. I got veggie meat and rice, no vegetables at all... More

Had lunch with a friend. Ordered the traditional gyro plate which didn't disappoint. Plenty of food to satisfy even the biggest appetite. We started with a serving of Baba Ganoush which was tasty while the Spanakopita was so good we ordered a second helping. Try it you'll like it.

What a great little place. Our Big Papa Gyros were delicious: the tzaziki sauce was thick & flavorful-not to mention the crispiest potato wedges as a side. But the biggest surprise...the mango/peach smoothie!! Customers were coming & going with them, so we had to try one. So glad we did. Will not disappoint.

I like the fact that Papa Gyro's has expanded its menu, but I find that when I order something that is not a gyro, that I don't like the entree. I ate there last night with a colleague who had the gyro and loved it and I ordered the moussaka and hated it. It was some of the worst moussaka... More

Had the lamb gyro with rice. It was really good! Stopped in to pick up to eat at the hotel. It was a little bit of a wait, but only because the customer in front of us had a big order. The gyro meat was really good, and not too spicy. The place is not much to look at on... More

The three of us had a very enjoyable lunch at Papa Gyro's. The owner is Iranian, so there are several Persian meal offered that are very tasty. The gyros are very good as are the other Mediterranean dishes. Non-alcoholic drinks are available ($1.99 each with unlimited refills). The styrofoam and plastic service items are a "downer." Otherwise, we liked the... More

They have really good gyro's. They slice the beef right off the shawarma so it is super tender! I would eat there again. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the atmosphere isn't that great because it is located in a strip mall. However there is some outside seating so that is nice.

There's no comparison between the Big Papa gyro wrap and that of an unnamed chain we recently tried. Big Papa's sauce is subtly spiced, not too garlicky or too strong. Their meat is thinly sliced & tender. Eating the filling & leaving the pita wrap makes for a feast on my low-carb days.
