Gyros Gyros has just celebrated its tenth anniversary of providing superb Mediterranean style food to the Palo Alto area and has established itself as one of the finest sit down, dine in and takeout Mediterranean restaurants in the Bay Area. Featuring a wide spectrum of Mediterranean dishes ranging from Baklava pastry to authentic Greek salads, the restaurant also emphasizes excellent customer service and has sidewalk tables where you can dine in a casual atmosphere.
We went there yesterday and I have had the gyro at many places and this was the worst place ever! My husband dealt with his food but I took one bite and the smell alone was terrible. It was as if the meat had gone bad. After I went back in to change my order to something else and again no discount no apology only another fee for the chicken which must have been stored or cooked with the meet as it also smelled the same. DO NOT GO! RUN FAST! There is another place down the street and it may be a better bet!
We decided to go for dinner to this restaurant. The lady manager was the cashier, waitress at the same time. She would handle money at one moment and serving food the next without washing her hand.
We ordered Shish kabob and gyros. The gyros plate was good but the shish kabob wrap was awful. The meat was very chewy. First my daughter was trying to bite it and then we tried to cut it with a knife and we could not cut the meat. The manager said since ny daughter had already taken a bite( the bread part) she could only give me a 10% off if I would order something else. So we had to pay for two dinners and got one dollar off.
We were very disappointed..
Gyros is a decent restaurant in a great location.
Offering the standard items from the Greek menu like gyros and kabobs, Gyros real value comes into play for shoppers or locals who have a hankering for something Greek and happen to be in the area.
For my visit I ordered the lamb and beef gyro wrap. Even though it was a to-go order I still spent upwards of 15 minutes hanging around waiting for the guys behind the counter to get it ready. Upon the arrival of my order packed in a paper bag, I ambled over to a nearby set of tables (It is nigh impossible to sit a group of larger than six people inside or directly outside the restaurant) a block away and sat down to my lunch. The exterior wrap used fit the bill, but the quality of the meat used was not up to the standards that I've come to expect. I did like the sauce that was used, as it had an extra tartness to it that was unique to this establishment. Raw onions were exchanged for small diced chunks of bell peppers, that while it may have preserved my breath for the next few days, was definitely missed. Overall the quality of the items in the gyro (sans the meat) was good. However, the total volume of materials stuffed inside the wrap seemed on the small side. As with all establishments on University, the value of the meal was lessened even more by the higher-than-average price.
Overall, I must say that while the experience was enjoyable, I am going to be wanting to find other gyros restaurants before coming back to this one.
I stopped into Gyros Gyros, b/c it looked cheap, fast, and full of people. I got the chicken plate and found my chicken to be dry and lacking in flavor. Actually, that could be said about everything on my plate. The gyro wrapping was still cold, which gave it a very tough consistency. Overal, my food just wasn't very well prepared here.
The spanikopita is my favorite. They Gyros are good, but sometimes way too much for me to eat and it doesn't make a good leftover because everything gets soggy. Their pita bread is different from what I'm used to, but it's tasty. I have also had the dolma and that's really tasty as well but quite drippy with olive oil. I was a bit disappointed in the bakklava because I love that stuff, but it wasn't near the best that I have ever had and what good is a greek meal without a piece of bakklava to finish it off?
The convenince of Gyros Gyros is the only positive thing about this place. The food is overpriced and of mediocre quality. Falafel balls are not fried to order, the pita bread is mass produced (read: dry, not tasty), the hummus lacks flavor, it simply tastes of blended garbanzo beans. The gyro meat is acceptable, but when all the fixings are wrong - it doesn't work. Service here is bizarre, I've often received an incorrect dish and was admonished as if it were my error.
