Stopped by on our way to Colorado got take out. Amazing traditional style falafel wrap. Spicy gyro was great too. Crisp ingredients and powerful flavors! Our food took longer than desired but they threw in a piece of delicious baklava to make up for it!

We travel all over. Great food, great people, great prices. MJ is a great guy, have a chat with him if they are not to busy. We try and support the local businesses around our jobsites everywhere we go. So when we drive through Iowa, we go out of our way to stop and grab their delicious food. They also have their own little pet menu. Stop by and enjoy.

Hands down the best gyro I've had in this city. Also best gyro I've had ever, period. And the owner and his family are the kindest, funniest, coolest, most welcoming people you could ever hope to meet. I know they're moving locations soon, and I will certainly be following, b/c I'm now a junkie for their delicious food and service! Absolute perfection!

Absolutely wonderful food from good human beings. I had the spicy chicken shawarma meal with the soup, and I couldn't have possibly been more pleased or more satisfied with my meal. My wife had the gyro meal with the salad, and she said it was perfection. Always worth the visit, and such good food consistently. I only wish I lived closer than an hour away.

Spicy lamb gyro was delicious and the baklava was a delightful follow-up to finish my meal. I highly recommend this place.

Grazali’s is the best for delicious, fresh ,authentic Mediterranean cuisine! Gyro meat straight from the spit! They catered our wedding, providing a ton of food, two great employees to serve the food and price that you can’t beat! We were treated like family! My guests still are raving about food! Can’t wait to bring our baby boy when he comes!

The food is good, & the atmosphere is cute. I'm sad to see them leave DSM proper. However, my experience with service has been rough. But it's still a local institution worth visiting.

The chicken shawarma salad was delicious: creamy yogurt dressing, pickles, feta, tomato, cucumber, and a quartered pita. But it was too small for an entree, and I was till hungry after. Pretty disappointed, especially for $13. Also, I'm finding they close sporadically, so it's hard to plan a visit.

Fiancé and I took an Uber to the restaurant. We tried the door but it was locked. They were moving to a new location but, the owner let us in anyway! The food was authentic and fantastic! It was family owned and operated which only added to the atmosphere and overall unique and cool vibe of the place. Wish them all the best and we can't wait to come back and visit their new location.

Stopped here just passing through. I loved the atmosphere of this quaint little restaurant. They were socially distanced inside, which was nice. I ordered a Greek salad with chicken on the side. Not sure how they spice the chicken, but it was VERY good! The Greek salad had mostly lettuce, compared with how it is traditionally made, so I was kinda bummed about that, and the dip for the bread was something other than the traditional garlic you might expect to find, but the meal overall was good. Parking was a breeze, and the restroom was nice & clean. Bonus: the ladies inside were incredibly kind!!
