“Great Greek Street Food - Just the Way You Like It”
Review of Gyro Mena

Gyro Mena
Ranked #1,599 of 10,078 Restaurants in Chicago
Cuisines: Greek
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Chicago might rank just behind Athens in the number of gyros joints, but Gyro-Mena stands at the head of the class. This brightly lit, neat and tidy store front restaurant can fix you up a delicious gyro in over 1000 different ways. Juicy rounds of lamb & beef, pork, and chicken rotate invitingly behind the counter waiting to be sliced into a fresh pita at your command. Then the real decisions start, as they have over a dozen toppings (including the traditional onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers), and a dozen sauces (including two kinds of tzatziki). Greek classics such as spanokopita, avgolemono soup, roasted chicken and potatoes, and baklava are also available. The service is fast and friendly, and the pices are incredibly reasonable. Go and be well fed!

Gyro Mena opened in Dec 2011. It is now Jan 2012 and I have been there 3 times. Partially because it's a 1/4 mile from my apartment, but mostly because it is SO DELISH! It's like Subway for gyros. You pick what you want your meat in ("keep it clean" says the sign!) (the pitas are SO GOOD!), pick your type of meat, topppings (onions, grilled onions, tomatoe, feta, tons more...), and sauce. The first two trips I stuck w/the traditional tzatziki, but the last time I sampled the lemon tarragon yogurt sauce - yummy!! You can also get the gyro "Greek style" which means you get a few fries on top. They have more than gyros, but so far that is all I have tried. Friendly, quick service all 3x I have been there. The place is clean and well cared for too. Fun atmosphere - there are funny signs all over the place and a tv showing belly dancers. With tax, a gyro is about $6. I will definitely be back!
