Like a little gyro with your pepper? Then order here. If you want to taste anything other than pepper? Go elsewhere.

Really good food. Really good. And I don't typically care for Greek food! The service was excellent. Very attentive. All that and our group arrived late in the evening.

The gyro salad was good, I was hoping for great but then again this is Colorado Springs. The tzatziki sauce could use some work for sure.

Great little find. Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly people. They also have this amazing collection of lamps for sale. We will definitely be back.

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance. Looks a little "hole in the wall", but the food is absolutely spectacular. Don't pass up this little hidden gem.

I love this place! Second best burger I’ve ever had. I like the Hawaiian burger the most. The Mediterranean burger is really good I prefer extra spicy when I order it. The Philly cheesesteak was by far one of the best I’ve ever had. And the rice bowls are a lot of food and way better than anywhere I’ve ever had. The owner is a great chef & very friendly. his staff are always really friendly and recommend new things. I really love the quality of food this place has and your money goes a long way here! really great prices. I will continue to bring my friends and family here. I always crave his food.

This place is incredible. The food and service was fantastic. I had the Greek gyro and my husband had the rice bowl. The portions are huge and the flavors are top notch. The Turkish coffee was delicious as well as the hot sauce. I will be back and will be telling everyone to try!! Thanks Erdal and staff!

I was super impressed with the food and with the customer service. This is clearly a place where lots of families stop in for dinner and it has a great community vibe. I had to thank the chef in person for the outstanding food.

So we wanted to try something out of our comfort zone for dinner tonight and let me tell you we were not disappointed. Staff very friendly and the food was out of this world. We have definitely found this to be one of our new spots to eat. Excellent job!

The food and customer service are phenomenal! I like the variety of the menu and the food is delicious! It is a clean and spacious restaurant that allows enough room between the tables if you want to sit and eat inside the restaurant.

Have you ever wanted to have a mediterranean carnival in your mouth? This is the place to make it happen. During this COVID-19 quarantine I have been ordering gyros from the Purple Onion so that I can survive this isolation onslaught. I've been to Crete, Greece and had gyros there, and I honestly think that the ones here are better. Keep doing what you are doing and making awesome food.
