    Best gyro I've had in years!! The tzatziki was also on point, but what really sets this place apart from past Greek cuisine experiences is the owner, John. He prepared our food and shared with us a bit of his restaurants history. He was very courteous and genuinely concerned with ensuring our meal was perfect. Lastly, the prices were unbeatable!! See attached picture - everything came to a grand total of $15!

    I've been eating here off and on since the 1980s. As most reviews indicate, this place is a bit of a hidden gem in a "dead mall." Definitely make the effort to find the place (lower level of Southroads Mall) and enjoy some gyros.

    Gyros sandwich is excellent. It's only $5.50, but does not include any sides. Tzatziki can be a bit salty sometimes, so maybe get that on the side. I've NEVER gotten dry gyros meat here and this is the only gyros shop I've been to where I can say that. It's always moist and tasty.

    Chicken Riganato is also very good, so give that a try! It comes with yummy Greek potatoes.

    John also has some very affordable daily specials: $4 Hamburger and Fries on Mondays, $4.25 Cheeseburger and Fries on Tuesdays, $6 Grilled Chicken Dinner on Wednesdays, $5 Chicken Sandwich with Fries and Drink on Thursdays, and $6 Souvlaki and Drink on Fridays.

    Don't forget to order a piece of baklava.

    Restaurant is always clean and generally well-maintained. I'm glad to see John finally took down the "Smoking Section" signs (it only took him a decade... lol). You have to use the yucky mall restrooms at the far Northwest corner of the mall as John's does not have restrooms of its own.

    I had the gyro, Greek potatoes, and baklava for lunch.

    I would never known this place existed had I not been looking on Yelp for something nearby...it's in an old use-to-be mall, with no signage anywhere on the outside.  Even finding it once walking inside (by BOB's Fitness) was interesting.

    The gyro was piled high and good; it tasted like a gyro.  The Greek potatoes were good, although both seemed a little bit salty to me.  The baklava was good.  It had walnuts, rather than pistachios, and had something in it - a flavor - that I cannot quite place.

    All in all a decent lunch; no complaints.  I suppose I might go back again next time I'm in the mood for a gyro during my lunch break.

    Oh man was this place hard to find. Enter in on the side with the gym then keep waking until you hit a T- intersection. Turn right and you'll find John's on your left.

    We met John while ordering a souvlaki and gyro. He told us stories about his days working as a cop in Heraklion on the island of Crete. Man, it makes me want to go back and visit Crete and the northern Greece again.

    Food was reasonably priced and okay. I would say that the food here is better than the average Greek or Gyro joint in the States but much saltier than I remember anything I had in Greece, especially the souvlaki meat and tzatziki. Otherwise, the pita bread was nice and fluffy and the gyro was stuffed with meat and very tasty. Both souvlaki and gyro were very filing, great for a quick bite.

    Hidden gem. Took me a moment to find this place. Great food  and service. Highly recommend you stop in here and try out their gyro or even salads. It's inside the "mall".
