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...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...More

I visit papa gyros frequently, as I work nearby. Usually, they're friendly fast and delicious, but today my pina colada smoothie came up before my food and the lady who made it was very rude as she screamed "smoothie". She didn't even give me a...More

Having lived in Turkey 4 years, I developed a taste for this food. Papa Gyro's has authentic middle eastern food, especially the Big Papa Gyro which is a perfect sized gyro. They recently doubled their dining room size so there is usually adequate seating. They...More
