Their Gyros are the best in Springfield

I have eaten in this restaurant many times for many years. All of the food is prepared fresh and done to perfection.

Family business that has excellent gyros and greek fries. We prefer to take out because the seating is not comfortable and there's not much atmosphere. Great place for Greek food in Springfield. Be forewarned that they are not open on Sundays. Good for them taking family time!

If you want a great gyro every time, stop looking - you have found the place. Small family style business with focus on great food and keeping things local. Good prices and better food.

Saved us from eating at any of the chain fast foods. Just was there 30 min ago on 3/25 right before they closed. Their gyros and fries were one of the best we've had in a long time and we go to Greek town in Chicago. I had a veggie pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, kalamata olives, most awesome tzatziki... More

Yanni's has the best Gyros in Springfield. The place is small and not at all fancy but the food is top notch. The sauce makes them fabulous! I've also had Gyros in Chicago (as another reviewer mentioned) and these are WAY better than any I've had there.

I grew up in Chicago and now work in Chicago. Yannis pales in comparison not only to the great gyros places in Chicago, e.g., Central Gyros, but also to average ones. The greek fries were also disappointing--the lemon juice came out of a bottle.

My coworker and I pulled up and thought this doesn't look good, from the outside. We went in. They have real Kronos Gyro meat!!!! The pita is authentic thick Greek style. This place is a 10!!!!!

Don't be fooled by the appearance, at first it looks like your typical Greek/Gyro joint well it's a lot better then that. The gyro is wonderful food is served hot portions are above what you pay for.

I ordered the Chicken Gyro basket with Greek Fries. The gyros was great and I love the Greek Fries (with seasoning). This is a great family restaurant. They're always friendly. The food is always great.

Tasty gyros & fries, but mega-garlicy tzadziki sauce & feta cheese is $1 more! Friendly owner guy. Dolmades (stuffed meat/rice grape leaves) & lemony sauce are delicious...$1 each! Wish they offered week night Greek specials every day...or at least on Sats.
