“Friday $5.50 Gyro a great bargain”
Review of Souvlaki Fast

First visit to this 3 location chain. My wife & I love a good gyro. We noticed a sign in the front window advertising gyros for $5.50 on Fridays and it was Friday - lucky us. The place was packed but the cooks were super fast at turning out orders and we waited a very short time for our two gyros. The lunch was perfect. The pita bread was soft & warm & very fresh. The meat was more than generous and moist. There was a perfect balance of hot, garlicky meat, cold, crisp lettuce, onion and tomato, tangy tzatziki sauce and the surprise of a drizzle of a "Greek" dressing on top. One of the best gyros we've ever had the pleasure of devouring! The special price makes it one of the best deals for lunch in the city.

These guys use the best gyro lamb and beef in the business. Imported from the midwest, one of the oldest manufacturers in the states. Then they slice it before it is cooked on the spit, throw it on a flat top, spray the heck out of it with water so it steams and loses flavor. To add insult to injury, they chop it up into tiny little pieces while it is steaming on the flat top, Minimal lettuce and fixings and extra for olives and feta which should be there anyway. They also charge 50 cents for extra tzatziki sauce that is less than half a little cup. What a shame. This place could be great but far from it.

Ordered a falafel platter and a beef ribeye skewer platter. The salad was great and large the fries were fresh and again well portioned. The rice was a little oily and I never understand why places oil rice, but it was well seasoned and had some vegetables in it. The humus was also very good. Will order again when looking for good Greek food at a great price.

We stopped there for a sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. The sandwich was enormous and stuffed with tasty meat. We really enjoyed the exotic tastes and surprised by the very low price. We now eat there regularly for lunch.
