Veteran restaurateur and Peno founder Jamal Haddad sought to replicate his childhood kitchen in Lebanon. Peno offers a wide range of Gyro sandwiches, Gyro Bowls, wraps, salads and platters.
Peno recently began expanding, with new restaurants along the NC-SC coast and, most recently, in University City.
Peno opened in October at The Arbors shopping center on Mallard Creek Church Road.
Yelp reviewers have fallen in love with the UCity Peno.
