We graduated from the UWM in 1991 so this is a group favorite. We normally get a gyro, fries, and soft drink while reminiscing about the old days. The food is as good as it was back then. Very good value. Always look forward to eating there.

I was dropping a friend off at his house last week in the area, coming past Oakland Gyros from Locust Street. I knew I would be driving past, so held-off on getting something to eat for home from other places. Glad I did! It's been a while since my last visit, and a gyro sounded much better than either a...

The chicken kabob sandwiches/ dinner are amazing. The portions are huge. The Pita bread is so warm with buttery like goodness.i eat there every two weeks. The service is quick and I have never had my order wrong nor ever been disappointed-seriously! Fries are good there too.

I've been to Oakland Gyros a few times to eat in and just for take out and the gyros are always consistent in quality. I can't vouch for any other food on the menu, because I've never ordered anything else but considering how busy the restaurant is no matter what time I've gone there I'm pretty certain that the food...

My family loves Gyros. We make sure to swing by Oakland Gyros a few times a year. I'm not the biggest Gyro fan. I always order a burger there and it's absolutely delicious!!!

We like this restaurant a lot. My son begs to come here. I rarely give in because I think the gyro meat is probably processed. We were here last week. It was yummy, and the restaurant is bright and clean. The ladies room isn't that great, and the low door can lead to embarrassing situations. The food seems to be... More

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
