    If you don't have a strong appreciation for meat after eating here, you should go vegan. Ask for some house made jerky ($2/oz) while you figure out your order.

    Great sandwiches! The menu changes every so often. Communal seating, so if you don't want to sit next to strangers bring friends. FYI Return of the Gyro is awesome.
