We grabbed a couple of wraps which were delicious. The atmosphere of the place was so so but we were getting to go so didn't matter. Most things on the menu were $10 and up if you want entree style orders.

Passing through on our way home to Kentucky and was looking something outdoors. Luckily the food was excellent. My wife had the crispy chicken wrap and I had the bacon cheese burger. The food was outstanding. We will be back!

There are several Purple Onion locations in Central Alabama and they are all a little different. They have a mixed menu- Mediterranean food like pitas, falafel, hummus, tabooli, and kafta; and also American stuff like burgers and chicken fingers. As far as I know it's the only Mediterranean option in the city of Pelham. The food is good enough if... More

We love close to the Purple Onion and it is one of our local go to eateries. The kids love their burgers and fries. I love to order the Greek salad and add gyro meat to it. The gyro plate is great and their falafel and hummus are yummy too. If you are in the mood for some mushrooms theirs... More

Overpriced and bland. No heat to their buffalo sauce at all and the wings were burned and soggy. Down here in the south it should be exponentially difficult to mess up chicken wings, and yet...

I had the gyro plate. I wondered if it would be enough food for me and actually it was more than I could eat. It wasn't great tasting but pretty good. Well worth the $14. The building looks like a run down fast food joint. It's clean as far as I could tell though... Customer service was an experience in... More
