Awesome value and quality – My girlfriend and I went in search of a good gyro, and boy did we find it. I've tried every promising looking or sounding mediterranean place I've come across (excluding places like "gyros and eggrolls" - wtf?) in a search for a great gyro, and this was by far the best. Fresh, bright, flavorful lettuce and tomatoes, a great tzatziki sauce, flavorful moist meat, all wrapped up in a thin, light, 9" pita round that the owner says he gets custom baked for him at a nearby Lebanese bakery. The baklava portions were large without the quality suffering - crispy, flaky, drenched with butter and honey and just falling apart in your mouth. The tabouleh salad was excellent as well - obviously made fresh that day, and even the small portion was more than enough for 2 to split as a side.
It's obvious there's a lot of local support for the place, there was a great painting of the restaurant and staff hanging on the wall that was apparently done by one of their regular customers. The owner was really friendly, giving us coupons and asking us to let him know if we found a good spot for him to open another location in Dunwoody. I fully plan on doing it too, I want this place to be closer!
They offer way more things than just gyros, too, but that was what led me there today. Next time I plan on trying their falafel, as it looked and smelled mouth-watering.
Great Mediterranean Food – The Mediterranean Grill serves up authentic Middle Eastern Food. There are alot of great dishes there, but for first timers I would recommend the combination feast. The combination feast let's people try three different types of meat - shish kabob, kufta kabob, and gyros slices. All three types of meat are well prepared and have great flavor. Another thing I would recommend is the hummus, which is made on site and very delicious. Definitely a place worth going to if you like Middle Eastern food.
Best Basboosa Ever! – I've tried the Rice Pudding and the Baklava both and have been quite impressed with the quality and tastiness of both desserts. Now they have Basboosa and I am in trouble (trying to watch my weight) as it is better than the many homemade Baboosas that I've tasted. Thank you Med Grill for bringing this uniquely delicious dessert to the menu. Now, how about Kunafa?! Can we get that next?
Best Pita in Town – The best gyro shop in Atlanta. Excellent hummus (try it as Saied recommends - with some hot sauce drizzled over the top), sandwiches that are mouthwatering (have had the gyro, falafel and kufta - the kufta has this cardamom/cinnamon flavor that adds a nice twist), and the flakiest most addcitive baklava in the city.
Although I love meat, I always try to get my wife to go with me as she gets the falafel. Of course then I have to sample it myself- it's something to try. And unlike a few places in town, Med Grill's falafel doesn't leave you breathing garlic breath for days on end...
The part I like best, since I'm cheap, is that everything is very affordable compared to most of the shops in town. When I need my hummus and gyro fix, the Grill is where I will be....
Best Medierranean food in Atlanta – I'm from the middle-east. I know my humus. I know my babaganush. I know my tehini. I know my falafel. This place is THE BEST!!! The salds are fresh, the falafel in=s crunchy on the outside nd fresh on the inside - just like it should be. The service is always very friendly. I tried many places in Israel, Palestine, and Egypt. I tried several places in Atlanta. Mediterranean Grill is the best in Atlanta and lines up with the best in the Middle-East.
Fast, fresh middle eastern cuisine – I've been to the Mediterranean Grill in Decatur many times and love the food- I just discovered the Midtown location which is much more convenient to me, but has the same fast service and really yummy middle eastern food. Their gyro is the best in the city! I like to go during lunch too for their affordable lunch combos.
