I have been to Oakland Gyros many times. It was one of my favorite places to eat while I lived in Milwaukee. When I return from time to time, I still love to stop there and get a bite to eat. The portion sizes are great and the food itself is good. Unfortunately, my last experience there was not so... More

Not much to look at from the street, this is your go-to foodie place near the airport (on Layton Ave.). Fast service, excellent food (I had chicken), reasonable prices, and huge portions so don't order too much. Ample parking and drive-thru. Very pleased.

This place is great. It's quick, easy, the portion sizes are huge and you depending on how much you can pack away, you can get two meals for the price of one with the leftovers. The yogurt sauce is delicious on everything, kabobs or gyro.

New in the area and wanted to grab something fast but good. So I decided to check my Tripadvisor app and there you go.....you are rated! It is indeed the best gyros and garlic sauce I have ever tasted. The beef is tender. Try the platter, serving is big, be sure to ask for a to go box and extra... More

In this day and age of sore-loser-chain-restaurant flotsam and jetsam, I ache for a place like this. Friends suggested I come here. It's your busy inner city corner joint where you place your order and step aside, but in a matter of minutes a bundle of food is in your hand. If you're hungry and want a meal for your... More

Go to Locust and Oakland. The owners walked around and made sure everyone was enjoying their food. They came around and gave ice cream cones to all the kids. Food was great. Also, one of the employees booted away a person going around and disrupting customers by asking for money. Excellent service.

Everytime I have Gyros I compare them to Oakland Gyros ... I have yet to find better. Everytime my sister & daughter come to Milwaukee from California, they always ask to go to Oakland Gyros. The Gyros, sauce, pitas are always fresh and delicious! Both the regular and chicken Gyros are great. And as others have said, the servings are... More

Yes, this are the best Gyros in Milwaukee. Too bad I live on Waukesha, so I have to settle for our best here. But, evey time I go to the East side, I go to Oakland Gyros. I have to try the place by the airport.
