    Went for dinner last Saturday with my boyfriend, it was his first time there and I had been there before. He really liked it and the second time around for me made it clear that this place doesn't mess around! Clean and welcoming environment, friendly and fast service and excellent food! We had their gyros with Greek fries, fries topped with feta, lemon and olive oil. It was so delicious! Gyro meat was plentiful, juicy and savory. For dessert, we had their Baklava cheesecake! I have never tasted something so heavenly! Creamy, rich cheesecake with Baklava toppings, honey, nuts and whipped cream. If nothing else, go just for dessert! Awesome, family friendly place.

    Love this place. I am on a diet and I can find healthy alternatives here. I had great beef kabobs, forget their greek name, veggies and salad with a bit of vinaigrette. There's not a lot of places worth healthy options. They're are a lot of other good alternatives too. Plus they had music on Friday night when we were there. It was an older jazz type band but it was good live music. I recommend this place, I've been there two times now. I'll come again. Plus they stay open late.

    This place was a surprise to me, honestly. A coworker brought me here for lunch, and this is not at all my style of food. I ordered a gyro burger and hoped for the best. HOLY MOLY was I surprised! Absolutely amazing! I will definitely be back here when I am in the valley. My recommendation, get the gyro burger!

    The atmosphere is always nice and relaxing. The food is good, even though the chicken pita I got was messy to eat, it was still good. The side salad was better than I expected for a side dish. My only complaint is the water here isn't very good at all, but there are plenty other drink options.

    Went there for the first time today and ordered a California specialty pita with a side of Greek fries. I loved everything! The place was very clean and the employees were very nice. I would definitely go back again with a friend for their food and awesome happy hour deals.

    We've been here a few times so we are still working through the menu :-) Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is served...bonus points for serving beer too... The service is great. The staff is top notch and friendly. You will want for nothing! The food is good and I think they're still fine tuning (a little heavy on the cinnamon in the baklava, but the Loukamades were great!). Given sometime, it's going to be a great neighborhood and happy hour joint!

    At first I thought the meal would be slightly overpriced until the food actually arrived--I had the Chicken Caesar Wrap--and it was huge (& delicious) plus it came with a healthy & fresh-tasting side salad. I also wish the tea wasn't behind the counter, but whatevs--I enjoyed eating there and will definitely be back (& am looking forward to my leftovers!) Also, I had the half Baklava... was so good I might go back sometimes for that dessert alone!!

    So I have been to this place two times so far and once for take out. Gotta say I can't wait to go back. I am not sure if it's good timing on my part but every time I have been to Opa Life there has been live music and good service as well. My wife and I both order pitas to share and have not been let down yet. I also recommend the incredible Greek fries. On my last trip I tried the Greek coffee which was great and not too bitter and strong like I was expecting. If I have one negative thing to say I would just recommend to actually dine in instead of getting take out. Part of the charm of Opa is the actual decor and music. Without the whole package you will find yourself with pricey take out. To finish I would say great place for coffee or dinner and I am already counting the days until I can go back.

    Skip the line for US Egg. Opa has fantastic coffee and breakfasts. For dinner the club is an oversized tasty choice.

    The food here is definitely solid. Despite the fact that the "chicken souvlaki" is really chicken kebab, everything here is good. I The chicken is good, as are the pieces of pita that come with it. But the stars of the show may be the veggies and the Greek salad. Everything is really fresh and tastes great. I like it more each time I go. I think two $ is overstating how much this place costs. Most of their sandwiches and such are under $10, and the few plate items that are over $10 are just over $10.

    Lovely interior with 3 TVs tuned to different stations. The seating is booth on one side and chairs on the other side of the tables. You order at the counter and the friendly staff delivers your food to your table when it is ready. I had the chicken pita with a mountain of fries for just $7.95. Unlike many pita places with dried out meat, veggies and old herbs, this was a soft pita with juicy meat, fresh veggies, just the right amount of fresh herbs and a nice tzatziki sauce. The fries were hot and crispy and way more than I could eat. Parking is close to the door. Super clean and with a desert display that made my mouth water, but my tummy was too full from my pita and fries. Maybe next time. :-)

    So Opa Life has taken over the space formally occupied by My Big Fat Greek Express as apparently the parent company of Opa Life bought out MBFGE per my conversation with the woman working the counter who is apparently from corporate helping launch the store. The first thing I noticed here was that they did a really nice job renovating the old space that was dingy and tired space. This is nice and refreshing. Sadly the second thing I noticed was the sticker shock of this place compared to MBFGE which was pretty reasonable. I think they are up a couple bucks up across the board. I got the special which was a combo deal of chicken pita, drink and a side for $9. The food was fine but lacking flavor. The flavors were pretty blank on the pita it was pretty much red onion and taziki for taste the chicken was band and over cooked. They just opened so I will give them a bit and try again and see if it's any different but with Pita Shack closer to me and I think a bit more flavor it will be hard to convince myself to come this way often.

    Mediterranean food is something we love and we wanted to try OPA Life Greek Cafe. When we entered the cafe there were hardly anyone but in half an hour there were people walking in. Well we ordered the hummus trio, Greek coffee and Baklava. We chose Garlic roasted, sun-dried tomatoes and bell peppers for Hummus. Must say they all tasted really good. Sun-dried tomatoes had a great flavor. I remove a star for the quantities of the pita given. There was so much of hummus on plate with hardly any pita. It was my first time trying Greek coffee it was surely a good attempt, had good cinnamon savor. I remove a star for the Baklava, it was not what i expected. I felt it was not fresh enough, the layers were sticky and it was way too sweet. I would still go to Haji Baba for Baklava. Overall it was an ok experience as for the food is concerned. Price range is on the higher side compared to other cafes. Service was really good which was impressive. Place is calm and cozy for a good date.

    New ownership and revamped look replaced our tired old Greek spot. Glad they did! New look is nice and clean. Menu is updated to include breakfast and coffee, portions good, and the food was as tasty as ever! Gyro and Greek fries were great. Nice patio too! Seems like the new ownership has it headed in a positive direction. We'll be back!

    Obsessed with Opa Life's gyros! The meat is tender and seasoned to perfection. Their salads are fresh and flavorful too. Clean and comfortable with excellent service. I heard that they have one at Westgate that's much larger but I love the Tempe location.

    They had a guy on the corner advertising breakfast I love this place for lunch but was really disappointed when I walked in with only one person working and 4 people I. Line and several people waiting for food needless to say I turned around and left. If your trying to build business you should be staffed to do so

    I miss the greek express this place is nice but no worth the 4.00 more charge. Very nice remodel, but gone is the friendly service this place has an identity problem it wants to be a restaurant, but with all the TV's is trying to be a sports bar which it is not and will never will be. I will not be going back.

    What a pleasant surprise! This fresh, new, little, somewhat hidden Greek place took over where My Big Fat Greek Express used to be. They've done a nice remodel, opened and brightened the place up and, although I was the only one in the joint when I visited, it looks like it should be a friendly and inviting atmosphere. The menu includes the usuals; appetizers ($5-15), salads ($9-15), wraps ($9-10) and pitas (~$8), and "Off The Grill" plates that include your choice of 2 sides ($10-16), all with your choice of chicken, pork, beef, lamb, shimp, and sandwiches/burgers ($10-12), etc. They have a full coffee bar with what look like reasonable prices, fruit smoothies, and Italian sodas, and a selection of breakfast paninis. There are about 6 beers on tap for $4.50 and 7 or so wines by the glass at $7, and a scrumptious looking list of desserts ranging from $4-$8. My Chicken Souvlaki plate included 2 generous skewers of chicken that was flavorful, tender and juicy, fries, and rice that was tasty and well cooked, a pita bread and some sauces. Service was friendly from the one woman in the store, who was also clearing up to close, but still attentive, offered me water while I waited for my takeaway food, and took the time to tell me about their lunch special ($6 wraps & pitas from 11-3). They also offer Happy Hour from 3-7pm with deals on apps, beer and wine. My 3-star rating is for the food (quality, quantity, speed to produce) and service. The only reason they're not getting 5 stars from me is because I think their prices are a bit too high for the market. I think this may affect them, given their newness, lack of reputation, and somewhat obscure location. Munchies (my go-to place) is serving roughly the same fare for about 30% less, overall, and they're open till the wee hours. So, I'll check out Opa Life again, and based on my first visit, recommend it, but probably not for a quick weeknight dinner except if you go during lunchtime.

    I will start off saying that my husband and I have made it a business to try as many gyro places as we can to find one that revels closest to The Greek Pita (N Phoenix). I looked on yelp when I started my new job to see what I could find. This place showed up and the reviews were off the chart. Today, I decided it was time (there is another place in the Fry's parking lot that I tried previously and would give 3-4 stars to)....I now wonder two things. 1. if everyone that is going here is stoned and just has the munchies or 2. If I somewhere along the way have been so spoiled by my place that every other gyro place will never make it out alive. Let's start with the basics. The place itself is in a great strip area on Baseline. It's got a fabulous patio setup and you walk inside to a huge (unexpected) clean restaurant. It was more than half empty on a Friday during lunch hour though...maybe that should have been a clue to bail...but I stayed since I had already ordered my food via phone in. Food. The quantity of the food content is great. My to-go container was FULL. I looked at it for a moment and then I started to LOOK at it. The first thing I noticed was it looked like they forgot my tzansiki (sp?) sauce. I was like okay, well that sucks, but went to eat anyways. The sauce was there, but it was more of a water down yogurt dressing with little seasoning to it. No cucumber, dill, lemon taste at all (and had it been better, this could have easily changed my stars). Because the sauce was put directly on the pita, I couldn't pick it up at all so I had to use a knife and fork. I thought that was weird. The meat was ok. I'll be honest, I can usually taste the marry of the beef and lamb, but I'm not even sure I got both and I definitely didn't get a lot of meat on it. It tasted like overcooked, under seasoned beef. It had a weird red coloring on it also, but there was no flavor with it. The abundaince of my gyro was a lot of shredded lettuce and tomato (it's a gyro, not a taco). The fries were basic, fries with no salt and kind of soggy (probably from my soggy pita bread). So there you have it. I would say I'm going to try it again, but like I said, there is another place almost directly across the street with better sauce and meat...a little more price (like $1) but that would be work it. A short tip, as about another cup or two to your sauce with some lemon, dill and CUCUMBERS for your sauce, learn to salt and pepper a bit and parchment paper to separate fries from gyro (if you can't sauce on top) and I might be back.

    My boyfriend and I really enjoy this place. Great employees and great food. They've forgotten to give us tzatiki sauce twice, which kinda sucked. But we love the place and the hours are perfect for us.

    Holy moly. I wish that was all I had to say. This place is flipping amazing. I got thr basic gyro and the Greek fries. So phenomenal. They came out at lightening speed, you get a huge portion for a decent price and the gyro meat is just delicious! Applause for Opa!!

    We tried for dinner, & enjoyed. Even our picky eater LOVED the chicken souvlaki. Today, we tried breakfast. Very tasty strawberry smoothie, based on how fast my child sacked it down. :-P I did manage to get a taste, & it was nice & refreshing. I tried the bacon paninni w/ bacon, egg, spinach, sun-dried Tomatoes. YUM! I noticed one review commented on tea setup. That is now fixed & available for self serve.

    As I was eating I was surprised at the relatively low star count. My food was delicious and promptly served and the wait staff was kind enough to answer all my questions. They also serve six beers on tap, coffees and desserts. I also would like to try some of their new breakfast menu! We will definitely be back!!

  • Kyle S.

    The staff at the counter was nice and the food was mediocre. The main thing that killed the entire experience was that we arrived at 8pm (their hours are 6am to 9pm) and by 8:20, when we went for a refill, they had shut the entire soda machine down and were stacking chairs. When we wanted a refill they had to actually put they nozzles back on the soda machine to allow us to get a refill. I think you need to at least stay open the hours posted on your door, and not rush the people who just paid to eat at your restaurant out the door. We were the only people eating when we went, and although the server was friendly, you need to stay open the hours you say you will. No one wants to eat while the place is being shut down. If you want to close early, you need to say so.

    I eat out a lot!!!! If I have to sell you on coming to this place; then that's what I shall do. You obviously are still reading this because you want to know if the food is good. Well- this place is CLEAN, and the food is good... Don't take my word, stop searching YELP and go give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

    I have visited this place 3 times, and I must say the food is absolutely delicious! I have had mostly their off the grill items of the menu and although they are a little pricey, the quality was great! The only complaint was that my veggies were over cooked once, but I'm very picky with my veggies. My only suggestions would be for them to add a grilled veggie kabob as an entree or side. Yum! They also have really good coffee. I would highly recommend this place!

    Loving Greek food as much as I do I returned to give this new venue a second shot. While the environment is GREAT for working, free wifi music (80's Rock that day) and spacious, the food doesn't cut it. I ordered a basic greek salad, my friend a gyros and we had a hummus appetizer. The first hummus tasted spoiled, the kind when you put it in your mouth it fizzes. I eat hummus almost daily and I'm hard to please but fresh is key. They did replace it with no hassle but it didn't start things well. For the high prices it was a lackluster salad, lettuce unassuming, unripe tomatoes and dressing that tasted like it was from a bottle. For the price I expected a much higher quality salad, not a cheap diner salad. The gyros plate was just as unimpressive. Second visit the staff was pretty and either brand new and didn't know anything or not well trained. We got what we needed but service could overlook the high prices and so-so quality. I'm vegan so I can't eat much else, but if you want a quick meal, a place to work it's good. And they just opened so much of this may work out!! I will have to be REALLY hungry to go again but would have a meeting here.

    Get a side of vegetables. They're so good here! The owner loves finding good live bands to come play which is perfect for the open L-shaped floor plan. The food is always on point and it's not the cheapest, but definitely worth the extra quarters. Love that they do coffee too...dark chocolate mocha!!

  • Marie M.

    Me and my friend love Greek food. The food is great here and trust me, we've tried a lot of places. The Greek fries are always... ALWAYS on point!! They make them crispy so fries don't end up soggy. I had my steak medium well and it came out perfect, full of flavor. The salad was ok. Besides the regular fountain drinks, they have a couple options of really good brewed teas and different coffees. I haven't tried the desserts but they look really good and I have heard good things. Certain evenings they had live music. The atmosphere is very welcoming. They also have an outside seating area with a heater for the chilly nights. The only thing I have to say is prices are a little pricey. Overall I would recommend this place!!

    First time eating her but this may be my new favorite fairly quick Greek place. Just had lunch. I had the half size chicken kebob, which comes with 2 sides. I had the Greek salad and the vegetables. Very generous portions and very good and both had cheese grated on top. They also have several very nice iced teas (all non-sweetened) including my favorite green tea/pomegrante. I will definitely try it again.

    Dropped by for lunch and Opa satisfied me with amazing food, an incredibly friendly staff with quick service in a comfy and clean environment. I ended up ordering the Chicken Pesto Pita with side salad and my friend had the gyro pita sandwich with salad. The pesto sauce is simply awesome! Very flavorful and not at all oily (I prefer a thicker pesto). The pita bread was fresh and soft and the chicken cooked perfectly. As for the side salad ... It was a meal in itself! So good and so fresh. Tons of cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and divine dressing! The gyro was just as tasty and their iced tea blends are delicious. All of this for under $10 each! We will definitely be back .... I am determined to try the club pita.... I hear it's to die for and big enough to feed two!

    My employees and I love to come to OPA in the mornings for our weekly meetings. The coffee is fantastic and the greek fries can not be beaten. The employees are always upbeat, friendly and welcoming which is another big reason we keep coming back. The atmosphere is very good here as well, good music, multiple TVs and even sometimes live music. With the exception of the live music is it rarely too loud making it a good productive work environment. Overall a very relaxed, fun and clean environment that we at Clean Air Lawn Care would recommend to all!

    Tried this place out randomly the other evening, and they were open on a Monday, which was nice. The place had a nice atmosphere, was clean and inviting, and the food was spectacular! We even arrived in time for the tail end of happy hour! The gyro and the Greek fries I highly recommend, as well as the falafel pita sandwich and the salad. Definitely going to go back, maybe when there's live music playing. Opa!

    "Damn, this Opa Life Pita is delicious, but it is filling!" *throws out the window at unsuspecting motorcyclist* . . . If you get this reference, you win the Internets. I was pretty bummed when My Big Fat Greek Express closed, so it's nice to see a new player in this space. First, it must be said that Opa Life did a beautiful job transforming the place from cramped, dingy and tired to beautiful, clean and spacious. Amazing what a little TLC can do. There's also patio seating now, which will be nice when the hot weather dies down a bit. Dude and I swung by tonight for a quick dinner before a movie at Arizona Mills. It's very similar to the previous establishment; counter service with self serve drinks. The lady working the front of the house was quick to greet us, ask us if we've been in before, and made suggestions. Both of us got the "Opa Time!" special ($9.95, $2 increase from MBFGRE): A Pita of your choice and Greek Salad or Fries ($1 extra for Greek Style). Dude got the Philly Style Gyro; myself, the Classic Gyro, both with a Greek Salad. As mentioned earlier, these babies are STUFFED. As in, good luck getting your hands around it. If this wasn't my first meal of the day, I probably would have shared! The gyro meat was tender and well seasoned, and the Tzatziki sauce wasn't lacking in flavor. I was able to steal a bite of the Philly Style Gyro, and it was a tasty change bursting to full with all those mushrooms, peppers and cheese. The dressing on the Greek salad was oil based, a nice change from the creamy, Ranch-y mess often used. The only thing that was gross was the wax paper under the food was kind of getting all soggy. I guess it's better than eating off one of those bare trays . . . But, it'd be nice if they invested in some actual plates. Don't miss daily Happy Hour from 3PM-7PM: $3 you call it draft beers . . . San Tan Products available, what?! It also includes $5 glasses of wine and $2 off any appetizer. Glad to have a no frills Greek place back in the neighborhood - We'll be back for Happy Hour or before another movie date!

    Wonderful! I got the Greek salad with gyro. It was a little pricey ($15 for a salad...) but it could feed 2. Super fresh ingredients, very well flavored. The staff is very friendly. Atmosphere - good for lunch. Casual, clean, would definitely be ideal for a business lunch.

  • Nat G.

    My dad and I decided on Opa Life for lunch & I'm glad we did! As fans of salads, we ordered the Greek salad and Caprese salad to share. The Greek salad was brilliant. Large serving of lettuce with a good amount of tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, and feta cheese. Now....the Caprese salad was on another level of brilliant. The balsamic drizzle was spectacular. I would even recommend ordering it as an appetizer. The staff was talkative and friendly. Can't wait to come again for lunch or for one of their many evening musical appearances.

    New to the neighborhood and trying out as many places as I can, stopped in here for a late lunch and iced tea. Free wifi was awesome since I was without for a bit when I moved. The "Greek" fries are messy and yummy and I'd love to eat them again. I had chicken that sadly was too dry and not so fun. I will try something else next time.

    My girlfriend and I went here for the first time last month. I don't know the whole back story and I don't really care. I usually stay away from that grimy looking strip mall or whatever it is. I saw a flyer at work and checked out the website. It looked good and I knew instantly I would order the gyro burger. My two favorite splurge foods that I constantly crave. The cashier seemed to be someone of importance. Maybe a owner or management. Really cool guy and made sure my girlfriend and I understood what came with our orders. I got the gyro burger and Greek salad. My girlfriend got the gyro pita and Greek salad. The prices aren't terrible considering everything these days are about the same. The place was empty besides the employees and one table of day workers. The decor was very nice, clean and modern and it smelled amazing in there. I don't drink coffee but I appreciated the aroma of the fancy looking coffee/espresso machine. The food arrived and it was beautiful! Huge burger and giant gyro. Big salads too. We had to ask for a to go box. The taste of the salad was awesome! My only complaint is the burger was over cooked and completely bland. All of the toppings were fresh, but the burger patty was completely under seasoned. kind of disappointed there because it looked so awesome. The gyro meat was also a bit boring but still pretty good. Tasted like maybe it was all beef and no lamb. Maybe this was all intentional. I'll try it again for the salad and maybe experiment with something else on the menu. Season that huge burger patty and cook it properly, and this review would have been 4-5 stars. I never give up after a first visit, but I want to CRAVE this place!

    My girlfriend and I actually detoured to this place to something different. I was pleasantly surprised that the place looked clean and modern considering some of the other places in the same area (not say to say that those are bad places). I was instantly disappointed with the menu prices since I was expecting more of a $10 or less ala cart type meal since I am on a budget. i settled for the special they had listed for $9.95 with a picture, but then was disappointed that to get the pictured item I would have to pay a dollar more. The meal I got was a gyro, greek fries, and a drink. The presentation was above average and pleasant,and the food was good. The greek fries were very good and the gyro was pretty good as well. The food seemed very american with a greek flavor when I was looking to settle for the opposite (another disappointment). There were others around me who ordered dishes that look very delicious, but I am sure that that they cost of those meals was higher than mine as well. I would probably go back with reservation, but it wouldn't be my first choice. As we were leaving around 7pm on a Friday night, it appeared that a jazz quartet was setting up for entertainment.

  • Aaron R.

    Went here with my wife to try it out despite hearing that it was a flop - But I thought to myself i should give the place a chance, especially since we order catering for almost hundred people in our company every week and I'm in charge of picking vendors. I thought good Mediterranean that's inexpensive could be a good option. NOT! Here is a quick summary: (1) While we were in line, my wife observed a sloppy looking chef stuffing his face with meat then licking his fingers. REALLY? No gloves? Several customers noticed and one walked right out in disgust. (2) I would rather be a snob than sit through another sub-mediocre dry Gyro and over salted sides (rice). It would be far stretched to say I had food poisoning, let's just say my tummy wasn't too happy after. The service was good other than the chef but the food is a no go for me. AVOID!

    Love this place! The restaurant is modern and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and beautiful. Yes I did say "beautiful".

I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes or would like to try Greek food. You will not be disappointed.

    Tried the other day for lunch. Service was quick, food was great and large portions. I had the gyro with a salad for my side. A bit higher in price than the My Big Fat Greek Express that occupied the residence before. Will go back for lunch when i feel like splurging a little.

    I thought we would go check this place out since its so close to me and use to eat at the previous business located there. I thought first there was a bit of an identity issue with what this place wants to be..But didn't bother me.. The problems were..They got one of our orders wrong, redid it. We got basically the same thing from when it was the previous business..it wasn't as good..and sadly priced higher. Also, overheard one of the employees complain to the another about the amount of hours the staff are having to work. AND LASTLY, we were the only people in there with half the time made up of the ladies at the front just looking over at us..Awkward

    1st time was great service. Husband of the owner was super nice and the experienced barista was sweet as well. Prices were pretty outrageous for a place you walk up and order from but the great service and food brought us back. 2nd time the service was poor. The lady seemed to be hating life and didn't offer a single smile or pleasantry. I paid 14 bucks for a plate of chicken, rice, veggies and a pita which I wouldn't mind if it were a sit-down-and-get-served restaurant but you walk up and order and then they call your name (or bring it to you if they aren't too busy). Bottom line: Good food and nice atmosphere but won't be back due to prices and unfriendly service. I would be willing to return if my plate were 8 bucks instead of 14.

    If you want KRAFT MACARONI AND CHEESE at a restaurant, this is the place to go!! Decided to get a quick meal for my child and macaroni cheese was the only selection for any pasta type dish on the kid's menu. And with a only a few sides to choose from as an option I reluctantly chose fries. When the food came out, what appeared before me was boxed macaroni on my plate! I was in disbelief. I asked the server, "Is that Kraft macaroni that they made?" To which the girl replied, "Yeah...well. ..that's how most restaurants make it." That made me even more irritated, that she would go as far to say that MOST restaurants use store bought macaroni, as if I was that ignorant! Not to mention, the fries were your standard Ore-ida frozen steak fries. I thought this place was going be authentic and fresh; I was sorely disappointed. I think I was even being on the nice side saying it was Kraft, for all I know it was store brand macaroni. I'm sure this is indicative of how they prepare the rest of their menu, with premade, frozen, out-of-the-box food.

    After reading all of the other reviews, I'm simply appalled at the criteria by which patrons judged this restaurant. I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend who had been a frequent visitor of BFGE. We were amazed at the atmosphere and selection. The food was spectacular and leaps and beyond better in terms of quality than BFGE. The price point matches the quality of food, along with the area. Please take the time to read every review thoroughly rather than view the rating. Most people ranked this place harshly low for minor inconveniences including price comparisons to BFGE, which had inferior food. Either way, give this place a chance.

    The place was a lil busy and the waitress was extremely helpful and answered questions I had about the menu. I have to tell you the food was amazing. I dont get out as much as I would like to as my wife is disabled and we have 4 kids and finances are hard. I am going today after work to get food for wife that she has been craving. I definately recommend this place to all who hasnt tried yet.

    The place is pretty and located on an attractive venue, but the food and service were subpar. I ordered a 24 oz tea and a sliced gyro. The clerk asked me if I was sure I needed two cups (as I was clearly by myself) since the tea had free refills. Confused, I said that I only needed one glass. Worse still, she ordered me a plate of gyro meat instead of a gyro, and had the audacity to lecture me on the appropriate way to order next time. My food was cold. There will not be a next time

    I was trying to find something to eat and noticed Opa life had moved into the old big fat Greek. I decided to try them out and placed an order to go, 20 minutes later after I saw people who came in after receiving food and I was still waiting and losing time to eat before I had to start work again. I went up and asked what was going on and all I heard was sorry from the server not even the cook, or the person that took my order just the random server... From the time I complained my order it took them 3-4 minutes to get it in a bag and have me on my way. So they basically wasted almost half my lunch break because of unorganized individuals who didn't seem to care. The food was ok bit expensive, 1 chicken gyro and side salad was a little under 9 bucks. I prefer Pita Shack since it's better tasting and more cost effective AND they don't forget about my order and make me wait over 20 minutes for a chicken gyro and salad... I have them 2 stars because the server was really apologetic but I will not be going back.
