When I worked in the Flatiron Building downtown, my guilty treat was a huge, juicy gyro from Michael’s Deli. I haven’t been able to find an nearby equivalent, although the ones at Fresh 4 U Mediterranean Cafe are good and an easy drive from my house.
The best I’ve ever had are a bit of a drive, but worth a short detour if you’re headed to the airport. Nick Koulouris opened Grecian Gyro in 1982 on Virginia Avenue in Hapeville, and now there are five locations.
The gyros are a delicious blend of lamb and beef, with Nick’s special sauce.
