A legend that lives up to it's name

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.

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

Found this place by accident on a business trip three years ago. Since then I have eaten here a dozen times. Great gyros, Greek salad and lamb shanks. It's not fancy and while it falls into the "fast food" category, the quality and flavors are great. If you are looking for great food at a great price you need to... More

You have not had a gyro until you have been to Oakland gyro. It is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten in my life. The line was out the door at 2:30 am of college students, tourist, and business people alike waiting for our gyro combos. The lamb was cooking on a spit possibly all day... More

Great gyros and sauce- a platter and extra pita easily feeds two people. The owner is very kind and the service is friendly. We often walk in nice weather and enjoy people watching while we eat. Very eclectic part of town and it makes the place even more fun to visit. When you are in river west it's one of... More
