Excellent and authentic lamb. My wife and I stopped by to test it out and let me tell you that it was delicious and their meals come with excellent fries.

We found the place on Restaurant.com We tired the deluxe plate which had salad, shwarma, chicken and beef patties, wonderful mound of saffron rice and lots of different sauces to dip in and fresh made pita breads with hummus and tachina to spread.

I often order the beef and lamb gyro meal with pita chips and hummus. It's my go-to comfort food. I've tried their kabobs--although flavorful, I am still sticking to my gyro. My husband doesn't have a taste for their classic hummus, but absolutely love their other flavored hummus. I, on the other hand, will only order their classic hummus. Owner... More

If you find yourself in Avalon Park - Orlando, FL treat yourself the best gyro ever served. Avalon Pockets is a small dine-in and carry out restaurant that is very popular to those in the know. Don't forget the baklava, it is really special!

After living in Avalon Park for the past 4 years, we finally made our way into this little hole in the wall restaurant located in the heart of Avalon Park near Publix. The owner there Mamdou (hopefully I spelled it right) was so friendly and it felt like I was walking in his kitchen. I ordered the Lamb Gyro which... More

We found Avalon Pockets as a fluke really. A Saturday drive with the dog, and checking out houses and neighborhoods. Located in the tiny "downtown" of purpose built community, Avalon Park, Florida, Avalon Pockets offered good, authentic Greek food on photos in the store's windows. We ran in, grabbed a gyro to share, and enjoyed. It was truly authentic, even... More

I went here with my family for the first time and found the place to be small but the food and service were great. Once of the best falafel and gyros we have had. The owner is super friendly! My only complaint is that when you get a lunch special you should be able to get a small salad instead... More

Best falafel in town, great humus and although the kebab was a little dry the taste and spices were excellent! We drove 15 miles to have lunch here, certainly will do it again!

We have been here several times and each and every time the food has been outstanding! We drive 30 miles one way just to eat here. Food is always hot, fresh, delicious and served with a smile. The Gyro and Baklava are some of our can't live without choices! Hands down...Best around!
