- A classic gyro value meal.
For example, on my combo plate ($8.99), pita wedges are dense and tough, not pillowy; rice gains a yellow hue but no seasoning; Grecian Delight gyro meat’s a bit dry; and I quickly regret not ordering extra tzatziki (40 cents) to supplement the spare amount given. Points for ample feta crumble and juicy chicken, at least. Similarly, on a gyro value meal ($7.29 includes fries and a drink), the shaved lamb-beef strips are under-sauced and dry (40 cents for commercial chili-garlic hot sauce helps), but it’s decent enough with crisp, airy fries bearing heavy seasoned salt garnish. Baklava ($2.09) falls apart under a first forking with dry upper phyllo layers, but it delivers lots of chopped pecans and sticky honey under layers, with huge cinnamon essence.
