“Home made Greek food, family run business”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

With so many vacant store fronts in Pompano, I take pride in giving my business to smaller family run businesses. The food is excellent and the restaurant is clean. Nothing pretentious about this place. Just good home made food like your mother or grandmother would have made. No doubt every time I mention Gyro Express I hear "oh yea, I love that place." There are some other greek restaurants nearby, but none better.

“Wonderful food, nice owners, clean restaurant, great value!”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We've been going to Greek Gyro Express for about a year for lunch, normally on Saturdays.
It's an unpretentious place with a family atmosphere (as pointed out by others, a husband/wife team own it), with Greek TV playing. Upon entering, you notice the cleanliness of the restaurant and the fact that they have linen napkins. Ice water is provided in glass glasses (not plastic), and the flatware is heavy metal....nice touches, indeed!
The menu is very complete from appetizers to sandwiches and full dinners.
The Avgolemono (chicken lemon rice soup) is delicious.....the best I've had in South Florida, and at $2.75 for a generous bowl, it can't be beat. We've had the salads and they are fresh and large. I generally have the Gyros Pita sandwich ($6.75) and it is scrumptious....a perfect balance between the meat, tzatziki sauce, lettuce and onions.
I have had the Tuna Melt Pita and it is good, too. Partner has had the gyros platter, which comes with a small salad and fries ($9.45). The portion was most generous...enough to take home. The rice pudding (($2.25) is very sweet and reminds me of a long-ago trip to Athens.
Also on the menu are lamb chops ($16.95), Moussaka (($10.50), Baklava ($2.49). They have beer (domestic and imported) and wine.
Another little find in Pompano which is definitely worth a visit.

“The real deal”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

This is the real deal. Discovered their gyros the night we moved to Pompano (exhausted after a day of moving), and have gone back regularly ever since with family, friends, out of towners, etc. Fresh, good food in a pleasant, clean, light environment. Run by a REAL Greek family who will become YOUR family as well! My sister-in-law (straight out of Big Fat Greek wedding) confirms this.
