“Giant portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

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.

“Thanks to your reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

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 sauce! I will surely come back here and who knows might drive all the way from Chicago just to eat here! Price I would say is reasonable. I will come back no question asked. And I went to the one 530 West Layton Ave Milwaukee WI

“An Oakland A+...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

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 money, this is a place to come. There is much to choose from which makes return trips necessary to enjoy more from the big menu. If you love gyros that aren't skimpy and the crispiest, hottest fries and food that will fill you up...come here. The counter can get be fast paced, though there is an area to sit down and chow down. Worth it all. Popular place and worth the lines and the wait, but things move quickly.

“Great Owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

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.

“Best Gyros around.. Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

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 very generous. This is a very casual place (one could almost say fast food ... but the quality is so much better). Order at the counter, and eat at your table or take out. Right down the street from UWM and Riverside High School. Great prices too!! You will not be disappointed.
