I'm a complete sucker for Mediterranean food. Maybe in one of my past lives, I had gluttonfests involving various dishes from the region.
I found owner Mo Menzalji to be an easygoing individual. Not much of a line when my friend and I showed up hungry beyond comprehension.
I opted for the Super Halal Lamb Gyro ($7), lamb strips with hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and tzatziki in a rolled pita. This particular pita is more wrap-like, thinner than the thicker pita that you may find at Greek food establishments. Personally, I just prefer the thicker pita.

I probably should have asked for Mo to include feta cheese in my gyro, even though I didn't see that as an option. He does have it; the feta is on his Greek Salad ($7; $9.50 when adding chicken or lamb).
For being called a "super" gyro, it sure didn't feel like a larger portion. I can easily point out three other places for gyros that would live up to such a "super" name.
As for my friend, he got the Super Falafel ($6.50), also wrapped in a pita with tahini, lettuce, cucumber, and tomato. He said the falafel was a bit dry. Being ravenous pandas, we still ate everything.
Mo also has baklava ($2), Turkish coffee ($2), and smoothies ($5), if you're having cravings for those.
The food was not bad, but merely being OK in a city filled with great choices lessens the chances for a repeat visit. We'll see if I return. 5/10
