I have been going to Oakland Gyros longer than I liked to admit. Been going there more recently as I only work minutes away. Love the Cheese fries, at times could use more, since there is never too much CHEESE. Gyros are one of the best in town. Always hot and fast and taste great.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on Saturday with our German friends' daughter so she could try out one of her parents' favorite places from their University days. We all thoroughly enjoyed the gyros. I've been a huge fan of them since I first tried them and the gyros at Oakland Gyros are some of the best! It's... More

I've eaten here for years, the gyro platter with Greek salad. But the last time I ended up with a case of severe food poisoning due to MSG. Fatigue, sweating, headaches and the worst was that my eyes were swollen shut for 2 days. All I could do was drink tons and tons of water to flush it out. Miserable... More

Oakland Gyros serves up great food at a great price just a few blocks from UWM, and caters to the late night crowd. I don't know what self respecting UWM student hasn't tried Oakland and loved it. The gyros are delicious and authentic, we found them very comparable to what we served on our trip to Greece! I highly recommend... More

You can tell this place is a local favorite. At all times of the day this place is busy! But fast service. The gyro sauce is so delicious! Friendly workers too!

Milwaukee's a big enough place and has many all night places to pop in late, but sure enough if your hanging down town or "on the east side" locals will tell you hands down - O G's is the place to go-when there's a line to the door @ 3am you know you've got the right spot - nothing fancy... More

Located on the upper East side of Milwaukee. This is the best Gyros you will find in the area. Come in hungry and you will leave full. Very large portions at a great price. You will enjoy.

First of all, I'm from out of town and it is quickly obvious that this is a neighborhood favorite. I can understand why, because this place feeds you and I mean feeds you. I had to eat through about half a pound of gyros meat with a fork before I could begin to wrap by chops around the pita and... More

When ever we are looking for a quick tasty dinner, this is where we head. We come hear at least twice a month ( and we don't eat out very often). We usually split a Gyro Platter with salad. It's a lot of food for two us us to split, but there are days when we get our own dinners.... More
