"We absolutely love these. The yogurt sauce is to die for (even without dill - not a fan). I made these twice so far, and the second time I added some crumbled Feta, but they are just as tasty without it. Will definitely be making these regularly."

"Loved these. My husband was raving over them. I made lots and froze them in smaller quantities so we could have them many more times."

"I've made other greek style burgers that were more flavorful. They weren't bad, but nothing special."

"Very delicious! I used dried herbs instead of fresh b/c that's what I had, and used feta cheese in with the dressing. Definitely satisfies a Greek craving!"
