Gyro Palace – Merrick, NY

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!



  1. AWESOME!!! great gyros, salads and soups. stopped in for lunch and it seems to get busier everyday. great staff

  2. The small greek salad with salmon is unbelievable. Very fresh fish and salad the same. I had the chicken lemon soup which is the best around. I used to go to santorini…not anymore. Gyro Palace and their staff are great.

  3. The other merrick greek place was packed so we tried Gyro Palace. It was good but I have had better. We shouldve waited for a table at Santorini instead.

  4. Had dinner at the Gyro Palace after it was recommended…..WOW! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was plentiful and very good. My family and I will be back. Nice ambiance.

  5. busy place with a wonderful staff. the owner always jokes and has fun with his customers. food is very fresh and plentiful. i will be a regular and will tell everyone about this place.

  6. I actually went for my birthday dinner with the fam here. It was great.

  7. I don’t usually write things but I had to this evening. It just snowed almost a foot, kids were home and we decided for delivery. We called Gyro Palace and a very nice lady answered the phone (she answered all our questions-this being our first time getting Greek). After we gave our order we were offered delivery,about 45 minutes, that was fine. Food arrived in less than that and like it had just come off the grill with portions that were AMAZING. Great food and service, you got us for life!
