Great Gyros Platter

They know how to make Gyros the right way - if there are 2 of you, go for the Gyros Platter - even 2 people can't finish it!

Small hole in the wall joint, Gyro was one of the best I have had. Witnessed them make right a mistake on an order ( not mine ) good old fashioned customer service.

After moving from Chicago, I craved all the local food items you cannot find where I currently live i.e. Chicago style thin and deep dish pizza, Polish and Vienna beef hot dogs with all the fixins, Italian beef, fried mushrooms, etc. AJ's may not match Portillo's in style, consistancy and execution, but if you want a taste of the Windy...

I've gone to Aj's a few times and it's always a decent quick meal. It's a right next to the KFC. Which i would pick Aj's over KFC any day. The fried cauliflower is really good. It's good food, not amazing but worth a quick dinner stop if your looking for something to eat in the area.

AJs has a great gyro plate, enough meat for 4 sandwiches. Comes with 2 pitas and fries. A really good value! Make sur to get extra sauce and pitas for all the meat.

Hot dogs are good, but you need to remind them not to the add the catsup to a Chicago dog! Really! No catsup on a Chicago Dog!

This is the better fast food place in town. Call ahead for carry out and typically will be ready to pick up when you pay. Great value on the food. Subs are excellent. Gryos are very good.

Pro: I'm not normally a big fan of cold food, but the foot-long subs can't be beat. Fresh bread wonderful combinations. This place was actually recommended by a restaurant down the street as a good place to go. They also have the "good" gyros, not the stuff already stripped. Con: They should have free drink refills.
