I have heard great things and finally ate there last Thursday night when in town for the game and the wait was long everywhere else. The gyro's were delicious and it was a fun college town place with a great bar and tv's. My food was delicious. My only complaint was the sour smell when we walked in. (sometimes bars... More

We've been here a number of times now, and it's even one of our favorite places to take friends and family when they come to town, as the food is always amazing. The hummus trio as an appetizer is always a winner, as are the gyro's for an entree. My favorite is the pesto pepperjack gyro -- and the cocktails... More

Gyro's are spot on as well as the salads. Go on Tuesday if you are in the mood for a huge salad without a huge $ price. They have daily specials on both food and drink. Very casual place to get quick service...

The food was great. The drinks were strong but awesome. We got two apps, the multi humus and the cheese spinach both of which were good. The bloody Mary was the best I've ever had. The peach infused scotch was good but strong. The pepperjack gyros are to die for. Great place would deffinately go back. Would love to try... More

Everything that we had was delish! Lots to choose from. Nice atmosphere. I loved the greek salad and the guys had the gyros, can't beat them. Give this a try when you are in downtown Tuscaloosa.

Came into Tuscaloosa from out of town and ate lunch here. Service was friendly and the gyros were delicious. The steak fries weren't very warm, but the sandwich more than made up for it. Would visit again.

Saw this on TA, Looked at the menu online and decided to check it out, it was an easy walk from the Home2Suite hotel. Started off with a bloody mary for me, and my wife got their Moji-tea (had to record the ingredients as my wife insisted I should make these for her at home). Both drinks were excellent. Really...
