The food is really bad but it's a good solution late at night. It's kind of cheap and they serve different kinds of food. Go only when it's the only restaurant open in the area.

Sometimes longtime local eateries get lazy overtime and live on their reputation rather than trying to enhance it. Not so Oakland Gyros. It earns all the respect it is given. Large portions at a very fair price will have you eating heaping gyros and a small paper basket overflowing with fries shoulder to shoulder with families, college students, and old... More

In Texas, we have great barbecue, Tex-Mex and steaks. Greek food...not so much. So when we visit the Milwaukee area, we saw the review for Oakland Gyros and hit it. The portions were enormous and the food was so good! The ztatziki sauce was perfect, and available in a squeeze bottle for the table. Yum! I had the gyros with... More

I come here before and after Brewer games, or just late at night because I'm bored and lonely. The food here never fails to impress. I always order a gyro plate, athenian chicken, and a lamb shank. These guys know me whenever I stop by. Little to no wait for food. Killer Greek food at a great price. I come... More

I was first introduced to Oakland Gyros decades ago as a high schooler, years later, and an impending move from the city, I had to visit one last time. Super simple menu, gyros, Greek favs, fast and fresh. I appreciate how tidy they keep the restaurant and that the bottles of ketchup and tzatziki sauce are kept chilled and meticulously... More

If you can, get your gyro fix by going to Oakland Gyos! Get Gyro patter with fries on the side to maximize your value. If possible-dine in (your fries will be 100% better, they get soggy when taken through the drive-thru). One of my favorite MKE restaurants!

Heading up to Green Bay after flying into Milwaukee and needed a decent lunch after skipping b'fast. Ordered the normal gyro combo. Good fries, but GREAT gyro. Plenty of meat. Got tomatoes and onions and glad I did. Good service and decent value.

Interesting place has the feel of an old school corner diner. By the looks of the line at 9pm this is a popular place with the locals. Gyros are either made good or bad and this place has GOOD gyros. They serve you plenty so ask for an extra pita. They also have hamburgers and hot dogs and the chicken... More
