Sorry, we don't have food suggestions for this restaurant.
Very good, fresh food. The prices is pretty good for the amount of food you get, especially if you order a meal instead of just a sandwich. The folks that run the place are always very nice.
As others have said, decent, not amazing. Portions were ample, prices were good and we got our food pretty quickly. The tzatziki was a little watered down but the chicken in my dish was cooked really well: it was moist, had great flavor and the pieces were generous and well trimmed (fatty chicken = so gross!). When I am at the office near here, I will probably come here again.
I was really hoping it would be better since its close to the office. Had the gyros plate and was not impressed. I wont be going back.
Awesome food and staff!
Reasonably priced, straightforward Greek food. Good service, does get packed at lunchtimes.
Been to Greek Patio many of times and it's a good spot for lunch as it's close to my work. The plates are a tad expensive for lunch as I got the Soulvaki plate and a drink and it was over $10. The food is decent but nothing I would go to for dinner. 3/5
I went to the Greek patio for a nice crisp Greek chicken salad and what I got was wilted lettuce that was black and slimie, when I called the owner to tell him that he sold me old lettuce with chicken that looked like it was cooked a week ago he said he would go back in the kitchen and see whats going on.Talk about bad customer service!! He didnt offer to fix the problem.I work right down the street so all of us go there alot, well my boss went there yesterday and he got the same thing I had on Friday and guess what? He is at home sick with food poisning today.Well I guess my phone call didnt work!!
I don't live in this area and I don't venture out this way often, so I have no idea what the Greek food competition is like, but for Greek Patio's sake I hope it's limited. Don't get me wrong, the food was good. I got the sampler appetizer plate that came with falafel/dolmas/tabule/baba ganoush/tzaziki/tahini & a generous helping of pita bread wedges. It was a ton of food for a really reasonable price. The only problem was, I couldn't tell which dip was the hummus & which was the baba ganoush, and normally that is very easily differentiated by both appearance and taste. Then the "tzaziki", if you want to call it that, though tasty, was more of a"garlic ranch sauce". The rest of it was fine, I have had better & I have had worse. So I guess my only suggestion is, ditch the "Greek", change your name to "The Patio" and your customers won't compare your tasty food to something its not...Greek.
This is a newer fast/quick-serve (not "fast food") type restaurant that is very clean and relaxing. They serve very good, fresh food in generous portions. Service is adequate plus. Recommended.
great gyros! delish!
is this place closed? phone not working.
I like this place because you can actually taste the food not like other places. I love the Greek Salad because it's healthy but still really tasty. I recommend the Gyros and Falafel. The people are nice and the setting is really good. Enjoy!
Came here during my lunch break with 2 coworkers. We only get 30 minutes for lunch, and even though this isn't necessarily fast food, it is also not a sit down restaurant either. By the time we received all of our food, it had been 55 long minutes since we first got there (this is not an exaggeration). Now, they do have a disclaimer that customers should be patient as they are not a fast food restaurant, but we also weren't ordering lasagna that had to be prepped and baked in the back during that time. I got the sampler plate, which was essentially just a lot of lettuce and onions and a scoop of hummus. This should not have taken this long. They lost our tickets, and even after multiple attempts asking about our orders, we were ignored. Then they messed up one of the orders. Just a disaster overall. And no apology either. The only thing that could have made up for this is if the food was out of this world amazing, but it wasn't. It was pretty good overall, but the sampler plate was not worth almost $10 (with tax). The pita was a little rough and too chewy. The rest of the food was fine. I will probably not be going back, even though some other coworkers seem to really like it and have recommended it.
So this little gem is close to mywork and makes a dang good gyro. The wait can be a ittle long sometimes, so I will have to find out if I can order ahead of time. They have a great selection, from dolmas, to hummus, gyros, and falafel. I ordered the gyro combo which came with fries. They do have a $1.50 upcharge to substitute rice or salad for the fries which I thoguht was not efficent, but I was looking forward to trying their basmati rice. I will definitely be back here for falafel and I'd love to try their hummus as well. The gentleman at the front counter (maybe the owner?) was incredibly friendly, though. the meal took a while to be ready but it was tasty. I wish they had given me more onions, tomatoes, and tzatziki and less gyro meat though.
We stopped here on the drive back from the Grand Canyon to Scottsdale. We were actually looking for a different restaurant nearby and it was closed, so we stopped here as an alternative because it was getting late. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was very fresh and healthy. The falafel was amazing! The owner brought out fries and something she called "fluffy" pita for my kids for free. The fluffy pita was DELICIOUS! Lastly, the owner stayed open past close for the four of us to finish our meal, which was really kind. If we lived in the Phoenix area, I am sure we would frequent this restaurant. It is a great local business!
I have eaten lunch here a hundred times or more. I am floored at the 3 star average (at the time of me writing this). I have been to many Mediterranean restaurants... in the Mediterranean and in US cities that have Mediterranean culinary scenes far superior to Phoenix. So I have some frame of reference when I say that this restaurant is fantastic at what it purports to be - a hole in the wall gyro shop. I have always found the place to be clean, the owners to be friendly, the menu to be extensive and the food to be across-the-board delicious. Literally the ONLY downside is the long lines and limited seating at lunch, relative to the high demand. A sure sign to me that they are doing something right. So I try to arrive before or after the lunch rush. Problem solved. Cant't recommend it highly enough!
I ended up choosing the gyro pita from this place on a whim because I was craving Greek food. This little shop is your typical restaurant in a strip mall. The guy at the cashiers register fit every Greek stereotype available, and so did the music playing. I took a late lunch and the place was still pretty full, meaning the food must be good. You do have to wait for your food for a long time...but that's expected because it's fresh. The gyro was very good, a tad bit greasy, but very flavorful. I was surprised that it came with French fries...and wasn't expecting that, so for the price you get a good amount of food. I will definitely be going back again to try why else they offer.
I've gone by this place many times on my way to the Culvers next door and decided to finally try it out. The chicken kabobs looked good on the menu but they were really dry like they were cooked and reheated. The vegetables and rice were okay but I've had better. The person I was with had the gyro with fries. They said gyro was good but the fries were awful which I agree. The fries had no flavor and looked like they were fried twice. I will avoid going to this restaurant in the future.
Quiet place for lunch on the weekend, but I'd wager it isn't so peaceful on weekedays with the Honeywell & other nearby workers. Nice, new clean building. Clean inside with more seating than most Gyro style places I've been to in the area. Falafel sandwich was nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. However the "side" of fries was very small. In fact, now that I think about it was $9 for Falafel sandwich, "side" of fries, and drink. Not such a great deal.
the worst. Employees and owner just do not care about the customers and how they appear. The employees are outside smoking every few minutes. We waited for our to go order for 15 minutes, during that time the guy out of the kitchen went out for a cigarrette 3 times. We were also ripped off. They charged us for what we ordered to go, but did not give us all the food that we ordered. Also they overchardged us, since they had to substitute for something that cost less, they were out of beef. The plate we originally ordered was $9.99 what they charged us, but since they were out ( which they told us after we waited for our order ) they gave us plates that are cheaper on the menu and did not offer a refund. On top of all that we ordered babaganuj, but when got home it wasnt put in with our order. Upon leaving we saw their kitchen staff with some other suspect characters outside arguing and smoking. At one point it even looked like the guy from the kitchen went outside and peed on the wall. Very turned off by this place. This is my firrst and last time I will get food from here. I lost my apetite, but the 2 others that were with me that ate their food when we got home said it was dry and overcooked. I called the owner and expressed how he charged me for items that I ordered and they werent included, and the fact that their substitute items cost less than what I paid for. He gave me a bunch of excuses and blamed it on the girl that was handling my order and she forgot to include babaganuj. He asked me to come back and get my babaganuj. Everything was wrong with this place. No thanks.
Food was great but service was horrible and it was all from the owner. Very unpleasant and messed up my order and a few around me and blamed us and took no ownership. Not sure I come back if he is there's
My big fat Greek Patio -- an ass after eating here. I don't think the owners really know how to run a restaurant. It almost feels like eating out of a food truck here. I ordered the Chicken Pita with a side of fries. I think it's pretty good Greek style pita with the cucumber dill yogurt sauce. The Chicken was grilled nicely and had that smoking smell. Overall, the food was decent and it is what it is. I just feel a tad bit heavier after a meal here. Regarding the service, it's a food truck inside a building. Don't expect much here since smile is too much to ask for and sometimes it doesn't seem they want to be there. It's slow to get your food, but at least you know it's made to order. The decors are very tacky and the god awful music plays.....please make it stop! They have a pair of television sets on Sportcenter. I guess that helps drown out the hectic scene. - Enjoy!
Price increase BIG TIME no joke..! I personally will never go back.. To bad because prices were already up there..$13.00 for a greek salad with chicken was $9.00 i couldn't believe it when the owner told me my total..Good Luck Greek Patio..!

Not bad at all. A long time ago while there, the Maricopa County restaurant inspector was there and he had been talking to the employees, then before i knew it he told the employees to close the restaurant immediately and to refund money paid for orders not yet filled and to not serve any more food. Since that time, and after viewing the updated inspection reports, I have returned to eat here many times. The food is very good, and I've not gotten sick there. They aren't the friendliest there, but that's probably partially due to the great location and not having to worry about customer retention since it's the only place of that food genre in that high traffic area. Another place near there, at Loop 101, on 27th Ave, has a very friendly proprietor, and he comes out to see how things are and such. They get a lot of business, but perhaps not as much because their location is a bit obscure. Back to Greek Patio, the man that works there reminds me of the Soup guy in Seinfeld. He doesn't smile, doesn't say thank you after you pay, and is quite stoic. I think if you tried asking for a substitution, he may say "NO PITA FOR YOU!" Like I said, since returning it's been very good. One less star due to the previous issues with health inspections. But seems they've resolved those.
Great chicken gyro. I forgot to ask for extra taziki sauce but it was still tasty. This place is tiny. I came during lunch hour and it was packed! No where to sit. So either get here early or get it to go. They have a sign that says they are not fast food so expect to wait a bit for your food. Not too bad. Customer service isn't great but a tasty gyro nonetheless.
I really like Greek food, and this place is okay. I come here for lunch sometimes. I like the gyros a lot better than the chicken gyros. The tzatziki sauce is awesome, fries are good, and the service is pretty quick. It's a good place for a quick lunch that's not a drive through.
There are a few good places for Greek food in Phoenix, but this is one of my favs. The food is always very fresh and freshly prepared. I think it's also a little more authentic than some of the others.
This is a perfectly adequate gyros place. It's small, but clean enough. Prices are fair. People get the job done, but are not overly friendly (nor rude). The gyros are just fine - slightly dry, but better than many places. The pita and tzatziki are both good, especially the latter. Fries are standard Sysco fries. That's about it...it's a fine place.
I haven't been here in about a year and boy have things changed. This place used to be packed for lunch but today it's empty. Maybe it's bc of the sign that says at the register " Greek patio is not a fast food business fresh food takes time and your patience is appreciated". Not a good way to start off your customer service plus the lady at the register wasn't very friendly. Now to the food this place used to have an awesome gyro sandwich but mine today was bad. The pita wasn't fresh half of my meat was dried out and looked burnt and the sauce is not what I remembered. With all the other Greek options in the area I will not be back.
I have never had a bad meal here yet. Of course all I get is the Gyro, with no onion and frys. I did try a piece of Falafal today. It was alot better then I have had in the past. Good stand by if you are in the area and crave a gyro.
I've had the Gyro combo for $8 dollars and change. This place just doesn't do it for me.
dont waste your money here. the food is disgusting & the place is not clean. health code violations galore. i got extremely sick here. the manager whatever his name is a jerk
$8 lunch with a flavorful gyro, soda and side. I really like the small, home feel to the place and the white onions don't bite but add to the flavor. Then again, I read Yelp beforehand and knew the Gyro was the choice to make. Thanks Yelp'ers
It's like fast food greek that doesn't taste like fast food. The gyros are incredible. It's cheap, fast, and you get about the same unsmiling service from fast food. It's the food that pushed this place to 4 stars for me. Otherwise... it was dirty... there were napkins and straw debris on the floor, tables needed to be wiped off and there was one trashcan only.
We tried this place today. There is a lot of parking and it is easy to get in and out of the parking lot. We went right at 12:30pm and it was pretty busy inside. There is a Honeywell directly behind the building and it was full of their employees. But there was seating outside as well. The service was a little slow and the cashier didn't seem like she really wanted to be there. The food was great! We both had the Gyro Pita- It was packed with meat and sauce. The pita was fluffy and fresh. The meat was a mixture and it was full of flavor! The portion was very large and came with fries and a drink for only $8. I would definitely return.
Food was good, nothing special, decent portions, gets very busy at 1120-30. Its 'ok' a few dollars more than the other gyro places around.
