I came on a recommendation from a friend. It looks like a nothing shop. A small gyro place along the highway with average everything catering to non-returning customer tastes.
What a great surprise! It’s very much like a small restaurant with a takeout counter. The gyros were big, meaty, fresh, flavorful. The looks of the spanikopita and other treats were large and inviting. The prices were on par with everything else in the world – no big surprises there.
The menu isn’t crazy. You will probably recognize everything on there. From my order, the looks of the whole operation and the other food around the restaurant, I wouldn’t hesitate to make a go at the entire menu in a week.
The Pitstop seems like the place to go when you pass – but no way – for now on, it’s all about the Gyro Palace!
