Taste Test: Gyro City Grill


OPA! No passport required to sit down to authentic Mediterranean food in Gwinnett. The moment you walk in the doors, you can’t help but feel the warmth and energy of a Big Fat Greek family business.

With over 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, these hospitable Greeks know how to make you feel right at home by providing “tastes” of  traditional Greek dishes to tantalize the taste buds (be careful to not fill up) prior to opening the menu.

Greek cuisine offers endless options and includes fresh ingredients like olive oil, rosemary, lemon, garlic, dill, cheese, olives and grilled meats. (Fun Fact: Mediterranean food is recognized for its balance of nutrition and healthy ingredients.) The menu consists of traditional Greek favorites such as moussaka,

pastitio, souvlaki on a stick and larger than life combinations of Greek gyro platters.

Save room for dessert, because you are seriously going to need it. Everything must be bigger in Greece, not Texas. You can’t miss the dessert display with cookies the size of your face, towering gourmet cake served by the slice and every type of Greek treat smothered in honey you can possibly imagine. Desserts are made daily and are available for counter service purchase if you have a hankering for baklava.
