Reviews for The Purple Onion

Support local! Been looking for a good Gyro place and I've finally found it. Ordered a side of Falafel, the Gyro with Lamb, tzatziki, tomo, onion, cucumber, lettuce & came with crisp fries on the side. (you get to build your own gyro!) Service, food and dining outside did not disappoint. We'll be back, will tell all my friends, highly recommend & can't wait to try a mixed drink next go around.

Ordered food for the first time today and I'm glad I did. The gyro was awesome and packed with meat. The tzatziki sauce was delicious. The veggies were fresh. The turkish rice as a side was light, fluffy and fill of flavor. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other menu items.

I happened to spot this place driving down Academy earlier today. My husband and I decided to go for dinner tonight, and oh my God I'm so glad we did! The service is amazing, very friendly! The menu selection is very good, and the food itself was absolutely delicious! I loved the gyro! I was also very impressed with the baklava! This was true Baklava that I have missed from home for the last 15 years. And to finish it all off l, we had a cup of Turkish coffee! I loved this full review
