Decent food In an awesome location

I ordered lamb and beef gyro sandwich- it is fresh and taste is okey. What is unique about this place is the location, within a block or two are Macys and Grand Central so it is simply amazing that you can spend $8.50 and find a roomy place to have your lunch, quietly

The lamb gyro platter is delicious, large, and very reasonable pricing for what you get. Plenty of room to eat in or take out.

Right next to Macy's on the 7th, this place though shabby is very good for the authenticity of the food. The Chef is Greek, and their pita bread with meat/chicken is great, and make sure it is doubly laced with their secret sauce. A takeaway is an equally good option, prices are very reasonable.

This was a fave stop of mine 30+ years ago when I lived in NY. It's still across from Madison Square Garden, and still offers big, yummy, gyros. Grab a bunch of napkins and a fork!

I had a gyro here today. It was delicious. Sure, the tzatziki is not what you might expect in terms of a traditional tzatziki, but it works well on the gyro. The gyro is really messy though. I needed all 4 napkins they gave me. However, it was really delicious and can't be more convenient to Penn Station. For NYC,... More

Let's face it, every eatery can't be fancy.....As long as the food is good. I love gyros (pronounced hero) and Gyro II has both lamb and chicken for your satisfaction. I keep it authentic with lamb...and the tzatkiki is perfection. The grape leaves are not bad either, but I usually stick with the gyro sandwich or gyro salad. For those... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
