I got Buds Greek salad with gyro meat & it did not disappoint! It's more than enough food for 2. I will definitely be returning for another.

Family owned and operated since 1979. When I think of Greek food Souvlaki and tzatziki sauce...... this is the first place that comes to mind. They also serve a wonderful breakfast. Portions are huge and the service is fast and friendly. Very popular among the locals of Denver. Reasonable price for a quality meal. I would definitely recommend eating here.

I've been coming to this place since I was a kid. I learned at a young age that the Gyros is the way to go. I decided to bring my 2 kiddos and and a couple of their friends for lunch. Although they didn't take my advice on the Gyros, they ate every bite of their food. The only words... More

I've read the raves about this place and can't agree with them at all. The hummus was chunky and grainy instead of smooth and creamy. The gyros meat had an off flavor to it that was unpleasant and I didn't care for it. Service was friendly and courteous, so at least that was nice. My husband's souvlaki tasted all right... More

I have been eating Sunday breakfast here for well over two decades. My standard is the breakfast combo. I LOVE the pancakes, French toast, and the restaurant has its own wonderful hot sauce for fried potatoes, eggs and bacon. This place is a no frills joint, but it is a favorite for Denver locals and serves really good breakfast and... More

Homey atmosphere for an excellent lunch. Gyros were delicious (heavy on the meat, light on the veg). Great tzatziki. Nice pita. Greek salad was good. Portions were huge. Little greasy but very good overall.

I've heard about this area of Denver but never been. When you walk into a place and immediately hear Greek being spoken by two steel-haired men who look like Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, you know you're in for some good eats. Try the gyro plate - it is HUGE. These fries are some of the the best french... More

Small little cafe that has a homey feel to it. Parking is difficult but with the walk. Place was busy and smelled amazing! The portions were out of control and I wished there was a bit more veggie on my gyro. But the fries and meat were delicious ! Service was a bit slow but friendly.
