Very poor service, coupled with an atrocious lamb gyro and an order mix-up all combined to signal a terrible review. Generally a good place for gyros...don’t bother.

We have enjoyed Taziki's for years. Maybe it's the increased competition in our area or we are just not that impressed anymore. We were a party of 7 after 7 pm one night. The employees were accommodating but not that "friendly". The food was great but with the literal "chip" of dried pita bread we find the entrees to be a bit pricey. The tomato cucumber salad was not up to par. Heavy on the cucumbers and hardly any tomato. I ordered a Gyro of lamb and remembered why I don't order it. The side of potato chips is so NOT what registers as Tazikis!!! I never eat potato chips so it's a waste of my money and their "food". Finally, the music is horrific. We had members in our party ranging in age from 10 through 85 and we all said the music was like "head-banger" music. Very unappetizing. When we go back and not sure when that will be, we will probably take out food if the music is blaring like that and it almost always is.

I love Mediterranean food so I was excited to try the place out. I got the appetizer of grape leaves (which were outstanding!) and pita and hummus. The hummus was very bland, I don’t think they added any spices whatsoever. In my opinion, hummus is suppose to be really good at any Mediterranean place. The hummus I had here was not good at all compared to most other hummus I have had. I might come back, but only for the grape leaves.

The food is always fresh and delicious. Salads can't be beat. I have never had a bad meal, so we come here often.

This is a chain, so I am familiar with the menu and how menu items are prepared. This location must have changed ownership or managerial staff or something, because things have changed over the last few months. Portion sizes are inconsistent, and so is the food in general. My favorite Taziki's side is the Basmati Rice. When prepared properly, it is SOO good. It's fluffy white and lightly lemon flavored. At this location, I've had hard (crunchy), flat out greasy, absolutely zero lemon flavor, and this last time I actually found carrot pieces in it and these odd black things that I pretended were some large pieces of spices of some sort. It also had tiny pieces of what looked like chicken it it. It was terrible. The inconsistency is unbearable, so I'm going to stop going. I really hate it too, because it used to be so good!
