SOUVLAKI fast (Boca Raton)
***** SOUVLAKI fast, 122 Northeast 2nd Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 395-1906.
SOUVLAKI fast…hole in the wall (maybe it’s got 20 seats)-fast food Greek joint in Boca Raton…order at/pickup at counter.

I just had dinner…gave SOUVLAKI fast- a shot…tried beef/lamb gyro, pork souvlaki, ribeye souvlaki, chicken souvlaki. The verdict, I thought that the beef/lamb gyro and chicken souvlaki were delicious. I found the pork and ribeye souvlakia to be “on” the dry side and overspiced. The pita bread, nothing worth wasting calories over. Now mind you nothing terrible, but a restaurant should be able to bat better than 400. I could also say that “almost” only counts in horseshoes–but I won’t.
You know and I know that this “food reviewing” business is purely subjective. What I like, you may not like and vice versa. I will tell you, that I was in SOUVLAKI fast from 8:25pm-8:53pm on a Thursday night and while there, the counter must have handled (in addition to my 2-party) 9 pickup orders and 5 eat-in orders. I will also tell you, that SOUVLAKI fast–in a about a week or so, is opening a second location at 625 North Spanish River Boulevard, Boca Raton. So just maybe, many others might disagree with my critical analysis. One other thought, the three counter-staff were as pleasant as could be.
That’s my take on this joint.
SOUVLAKI fast is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm.
my office is right across the street from this one.
i and others in the office often pick up food for lunch.
you are correct that it’s hit and miss here.
some of the items are very good and others fair at best.
whenever we have been there, there has been a line to get food.
it’s a very small restaurant but it seems to do a ton of business.
i either get the chicken gyro or regular gyro and its always great. their tzatziki needs some work though
regular gyro is delicious. steak and pork kabobs are tough, chewy and not tasty.

Jeff, I think I stumbles on a Ny Style Pizza winneron Dixie Highway in NMB. Kings County Pizza. Owner worked at Umberto’s New Hyde Park. Has a grandma pie that was very good. need to try reg slice but the pies looked great.
p.s. check out Chowdown Grill in Surfide for modern, fresh Chinese. Chef is Josh Marcus, great guy. Make sure he is there and tell him I sent you… specials board is where its at
food is okay, nothing great.
olo, you said it! the food is ok, but nothing great or worth going out of your way for.
i think the problem here, is that this is a fast food business and they really can’t spend too much time preparing items. everything is made right up front at the counter and hurried.
I must disagree with many of the above. I love the food here – my faves are the chicken souvlaki and the chicken gyro. I often have to eat on the go, and this is one of very few places where I can get a delicious, healthy meal fast so I can get back to work. The fact that I can see everything while it is being made is a huge bonus. Eat there often and have never had a bad experience.
i found the pita bread to be tasteless and boring.
i found the steak and pork cubes to be tough and hard to chew.
i found the gyro to be okay but i’ve had much better.
jeff, try gyroville that just opened in boca., really good fast food.
I really don’t know what you are all talking about. I’m a member of rewards network which prompted me to go eat after I saw this place had 141 reviews and a 4.6 star rating. I quickly became a regular…everything I have ever eaten here has been wonderful, the place is spotless and the service delightful. I had the pork last night – very tender and delicious!!
Beef and lamb gyros truly outstanding. Very large and loaded with top notch ingredients. As a bonus I was able to buy the great great Greek olive oil previously only available at the annual Greekfest at the Greek Orthidox church on Yamato.
Found this to be very clean and fast. I had the gyro with Greek fries and thought it to be delicious. For a fast f
Really liked. For a fast food place found it to be delicious and tasty. Loved the Greek fries! Salads looked amazing too.
