I had to watch a girl in the back eating her finger nails like I have never seen before! It was clear she had horrible hygene and we even watched her wipe her nose with her hands and continue making a shake!

If that was not gross enough she then just leaned on the counter and just kept digging into those finger nails with no care that every body in the place had to watch while we ate!!!!

I also watched the man in the back pick up my gyro meat with his bare hands - The whole thing was completely handled with bare hands. He did not look like he had taken a fresh shower today either!

I will say that Yannis needs to train its people in proper hygene and get rid of the girl that can't stop chewing on her nails!!!! I don't think I can ever go back now after what I had to watch.

Most food is great but BEWARE of the pastrami burger. – I always loved Yanni's. But then I decided to try the pastrami burger. It was possibly the most disgusting thing I had ever partially eaten. The jerky-like pastrami meat tasted like rotting carcass, & I'm NOT kidding.

The Pastrami was more like stiff red beef jerky, making the whole burger fall to pieces, which was highly aggravating & frustrating (plus the burger patty was halfway off the bun). The consistency and look of the "Pastrami" literally looked like human meat. Having been through many biology classes I know what this looks like. This burger made me so sick that I started thinking that there may be some kinda Greek Mafia in Utah & that they dispose of there victims through their restaurant. I actually did vomit after eating this horrific thing, especially with all the cannibalistic thoughts going through my head.

There Greek food is excellent, but if you're going to get one of their burgers, DONT do it. Just go to crown burger.

That's all I have to say. I'm so grossed out now that I don't think I'll be going back to Yanni's for a long long time.

Service and food terrible!!! – Only one person greeting us little bit and that was young lady on register.Another one told us it s 5mins to closing and that was suppoed to mean.If you are lucky to get food that you just ordered sec a go and eat it asap,get your ass out.That kind of Customer Service I never experienced anywhere and food-meat was BURNED and dry.Greek souvlaki was dry and fries terrible including service.Too small and I wonder what are this comment talking about or were they paid to write it in good words.That is NOT greek food at all and really NEVER AGAIN!!!

Addicted to THIS Greek – I have been going to Yanni's since I moved here several years ago and it's the best greek in town. They never skimp! Their gyros are full to the brim and the meat is perfectly seasoned and not as greasy as what places like Crown serve. If you ask for a side of feta you get a ton and it's the smoothest, tastiest feta you'll ever have. It's really yummy on their greek salads! Their dolmadas are huge and they taste the best (I don't like the skinny tomatoey ones you get some places). The burgers are really good too if you have someone with you who doesn't feel like anything too authentic.

Great Food – For anyone who is craving some quality Greek food in SLC area Yanni's Greek Express is the place to go. Conveniently placed for commuters where highland and 1300 meet, perfect for a quick bite, however a few items take some time to prepare like my favorite, the chicken greek salad. Great place to sit down, great service and a great atmosphere. One complaint i have is the poor quality of sound from the drive thru window, i much rather prefer to dine in. Like i said the service is great often you even see Yanni himself taking orders or visiting with friends.

An all around great place.

Warning: terrible service and sub par food – I've really never been happy eating there in the 10 or so times I've been in the past 6 months. But, I go back because of its convenience and I hoped that each time it would get better.

Recently they got my order wrong, and were unwilling to fix it. They said no, this is what you ordered, and didn't have anything else to say. So, that made me decide that eating there at all was definitely a mistake.

People do make mistakes while ordering, both on the customer's side as well as the employee's side. But when no solutions are even introduced, it puts the error always on the customer no matter who is at fault.

Fortunately I am in a position that I can let a lot of people know to stay away from Yanni's, and to visit Crown or Apollo Burger instead.

Mouth Watering – Yanni's is the best greek food I've ever had! Hands down it is the only place my entire family and extended family can agree on. It just came up in casual conversation and now I just have to get it for dinner. All of our favorite thing is the Yanni's special. It's big enouph for 3 to 4 meals. It has you choice of lemon Chicken or pork, lemon rice or fries, and a Greek salad with pita bread. I always order extra pita bread it is fresh and amazing. I get the meals to go and on the way home the smell is killing me, as I'm dying to eat it. I usually snack on some of the fresh pita bread tio tide me over. I recomend this place to everyone I meet, as do all of my family for as long as I remember.

Best Real Greek Food! – I am a regular. Love the food. Yanni is there personally every day and he's great. I have been going to his place for over 25 years and he's still the best. He takes pride in his work, his restaurant and the quality shows in every way. The price is very reasonable, too.

Good Greek Fast Food – Yanni does good gyros, rice, mushrooms, zuchinni. Never had a burger here, always something Greek. I like the gyro with both red AND white sauce. A good change from other gyros. His dipping suace for fried items needs a little help. Go on off hours as it's very busy.

Greece meets West at a fast-food joint specializing in gyros and souvlaki. – The Scene
The dining room has brightly colored walls, photographs of Greece and silk flowers, adding life to what would otherwise look like an ordinary fast-food restaurant. Order at the counter and wait for your number to be called over the intercom.

The Food
The gyro is a favorite here--beef and lamb on a fresh, soft pita topped with tomato, onion and tangy yogurt-cucumber sauce. Souvlaki is another specialty: the dinner comes with fries or rice, pita, salad and a large drink. For side orders, you can't beat the dolmathes--seven stuffed grape leaves. Also don't miss the spanakopita (spinach pie). The Greek salad--lettuce, onions, kalamata olives, feta cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes--tastes good, but is swimming in dressing.
