Made a quick stop here for lunch -- its quite an awesome place to be. Amazing tasting gyros and generally just great people in there. Anything you pick from the menu here is worth it.

King of King Gyros in Downtown Wilkesbarre is an awesome place to grab some grub for take out or dining in. They're open late, are in the perfect spot on the square, and every ounce of wall space is covered with customer art on post its a tradition someone started that has never ended. Vegetarian? You're in luck King of... More

Can you say something is too meaty? Nah I didn't think so. They have great gyros. The people there could be a little more patient but the quality of the product is never a disapointment

it's an OK gyro, especially if you are out at one of the bars and are drunk... I haven't tried any of the other items on the menu as I haven't been back.... I much prefer the HUGE gyros offered by the true Gyro King in the food truck in the Kmart parking lot. twice the meat and better tsaziki... More

This is just a little gyro place right on the square in Wilkes-Barre. They have gyros with an actual roasting spit for the gyro meat (yes, this makes a difference), pierogies, and falafel. I used to get these all the time after my night classes. They deliver too, which is nice, and they're open pretty much all the damn time.... More

Authentic tastiest Greek gyro in the state of Pa. Made to order by a friendly staff who remember their customers as well as their preferences. They are on par & even rival the Greeks from Astoria NY. The place is small & quirky with sticky notes all over the place with accolades from the customers. Very well worth the price... More

If you ever visit Wilkes Barre you have to stop here and try a gyro. They are authentic Greek Gyros.Its is better than a New York Gyro.The service is friendly and really nice too. And they are open to 3 am on the weekends!

Locally operated by the twins. We have been making gyros since 2010. We strive to make the best gyros in town while providing top notch service. Good as any better than most.
