I notice purple onions can be one of two ways, horribly disgusting food quality, or the best food I've ever eaten. it always varies by location.. but this purple onion is fantastic and delicious every time! always soft pita, always fresh looking meats and veggies, and properly seasoned hummus :D I love a good purple onion and THIS is a good purple onion

Old fateful. You can never go wrong with Purple Onion. Always cooked to order so it's hot and fresh when they deliver your meal. Food : 5/5 | Service : 5/5 | Atmosphere : 5/5 … More

I ordered my food an hour before picking it up,but yet my order was still all messed up!! First, how you gonna have a gyro salad with the gyro meat!!?? Then I tried to surprise my Beautiful wife with a strawberry cheesecake but there was nothing!! Come to find out they was out & the young lady forgot to tell us, which was ok when fixed because she still got her second favorite, the caramel cake (delicious)!! Then she goes to eat her bacon cheeseburger, really good, except they put pickles that I specifically asked for not to be put on because she doesn't like hot pickles or the flavor of it on her food!! The young lady in the drive thru was extremely sweet. She apologized for the mistakes & was very helpful!!
