This place is a staple for the UWM late night crowd. People line up for the gyros, hamburgers, french fries and plenty of other choices till 3:30am! This Greek restaurants offers authentic gyros, chicken shish kabob, and plenty other items. You get a great portion of food for the money you spend. Only problem is the place doesn't take credit...

I spent two weeks in Milwaukee for work and Oakland Gyros is by far the best place I've eaten. Detroit's Greektown is hard to beat when it comes to Greek cuisine but Oakland Gyros tops them. The food was fresh and delicious. The serving sizes were huge. First time in Milwaukee I've needed a to go box. It is a... More

I stopped in tonight with a friend and it was phenomenal! I loved their gyros! It was under $10 for a combo gyro meal, which could've fed 2-3 people with their portion sizes. Delicious!! Parked right next to it, paid the meter. You will LOVE their food!

By far the best gyros I have had...Anywhere...Period! Great portions, very friendly service, conveniently located near the hotel I stay at frequently. I love this place, and my family loves this place! I know it is just simple food, but it is seriously one of the highlights of every visit to Milwaukee!

Oakland Gyros has THE BEST gyros in two states! I miss this place so much! The portions are hearty and filling and the food is fresh and well-prepared! The best food memory I have of living in Milwaukee is Oakland Gyros (Unfortunately, my last visit was before I left in 2004) and I will make it my business to get... More

The first thing I thought when I got my food was "good lord that's a lot of food for $8." He food wasn't the best and the restaurant wasn't the nicest but I will definitely be back. Overall great place!!!

I have been to Oakland Gyros many times. It was one of my favorite places to eat while I lived in Milwaukee. When I return from time to time, I still love to stop there and get a bite to eat. The portion sizes are great and the food itself is good. Unfortunately, my last experience there was not so... More

Not much to look at from the street, this is your go-to foodie place near the airport (on Layton Ave.). Fast service, excellent food (I had chicken), reasonable prices, and huge portions so don't order too much. Ample parking and drive-thru. Very pleased.
