Not Fine Dining, Mr Greek Gyros Holds Its Own

by Matt B on May 27th, 2008

Right in the middle of Greektown, Mr. Greek Gyros is open 24 hours, and it’s a good thing too because most of its clientele stops by after a night out on the town. Whether your cravings come at 2 p.m. or 2 a.m., this little restaurant makes up for its bare atmosphere with great cooked-to-order food.

Although a few people swear by the pizza puff here, the gyros are where it’s at, along with the Grecian chicken and souvlaki (pork and veggies grilled on a skewer). Just remember that the souvlaki may take a little longer to prepare, as it’s cooked on the fire. Get a combo for lunch, which includes fries and a drink, or go for a full-sized dinner served with garlic bread and two choices of side orders (small salad, fries, or rice). And full-sized doesn’t mean full-priced either. Dinners average less than $7.

Sure, there are plenty of classier sit-down restaurants in the area (like Greek Islands and Santorini), but sometimes you’ve got a yearning for something fast, inexpensive, and tasty. Mr. Greek has got your fix.
