Reviews for The Purple Onion

Spent the day in Colorado Springs and found this little gem while wondering town. Excellent service and delicious food. Our family chose the gyro meat over salad, the iskender and two lamb/beef gyros. Everything came out hot and flavorful. We'll be back next time we're in town.

Don't be thrown off by the dark sports bar vibe when you walk-in - They are going for Turkey meets college bar decor. We got meat lover's platter - gyro was our favorite. Very good in comparison when I've been to different Mediterranean countries. Rice, dolma, and fries (yummy seasoning) were great. Many gluten free options (basically everything but bread, baklava, & rice/orzo). They also have many American grill/bar items on menu. Staff seemed overworked but were busting full review
Purple Onion is located in an empty shopping center. We were on the way to airport and tried to quickly find someplace to eat a quick lunch. Two other places had substantial wait times. The interior was dark with painted cement floor and mismatched Formica tables and chairs. Restrooms were spotlessly clean as was the restaurant. The menu was filled with the traditional Greek and Turkish dishes. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We even had a visit from the owner full review
