Grecian Gyro – Greek Fast Food

Once a week, Go Greek! Grecian Gyro

Grecian Gyro has a plan. It says so right on the sign outside:  Once a week, Go Greek!  Well, the prices are fair and the service is fast, so it does make for a convenient meal. Personally, I come for the sauce. It’s recipe is top secret, but I think it would be possible to eat chair legs if you cut them small enough and covered them in this sauce.

According to the website, “Nick Koulouris opened Grecian Gyro in 1982 with $200 in his pocket, a prayer in his heart, and a sauce recipe locked tightly in his head.”  With an opening line like that, who even cares if it’s true?  But the staff at the Lawrenceville highway location assured me it was gospel. Koulouris grew up with in Kalamata, Greece and had a goal of making spicy gyro sandwiches like the ones from his home town. The olives still come from there. Grecian Gyro continues to be family owned and the food appeals to families and singles alike. The restaurant is not fancy, but it is clean and bit nicer than the hole-in-the-wall reputation they present. To me, it’s Greek fast food.

A friend and I visited for dinner recently. I ordered the gyro plate that comes with Grecian potatoes with secret sauce, Greek salad, pita triangles and a drink ($11). The plate was ready before I was even able to fill my soda. It you still have room, try the baklava. The gyros was spicy and succulent.
