And, Theodora (although the restaurant is actually named after her grandmother)...
Are the gyros any good? My guess is it doesn't matter to you.
A) They're amazing...
B) Yeah, I really couldn't care less!
(That said, I was going there for gyros long before I ever saw Theodora, so that says something about the food, eh?)
Lots. My favorite is in the middle of the desert on I-15 on the way to Vegas. The Mad Greek:
Dammit, I'm hungry. I've got some leftover lamb neck taco meat, but it's too close to dinner time.
Several including one in the hood that sells them for $5 (in or out) on Wednesdays...that joint be slammed!
Mike and Tony's gyros, 15th and E. Carson St, Pittsburgh PA.
I love it. Sometimes get lucky enough to stop while I'm working in that area.
For my gyro fix (and all food items Greek) my special place is Tarpon Springs, FL (a Greek community). Everything else is just average.
They do not know how to make a Gyro in Tennessee .
These Hillbillys have never even seen one .
I'm not sure this place has gyros, but they make some really nice Mediterranean style food.
The chicken kabobs are from the simply 500 menu, where the dishes are 500 calories or below. The humus and pita was a freebie on that day.

That's a lot of dressing for one salad.
We have those restaurants here and they definitely do not have gyros.
BTW, anyone here got a good recipe for hummus? Every time I try to make it, it's close but no cigar. There are tons of recipes online and on youtube.
LOL! That bottle of dressing just sets on the table. I just use a few squirts.
My wife made some humus a while back that tasted like humus. Too much work for me, when I just by a tub.
Humus reminds me of bean dip ... I guess it is the modern analogy of bean dip ... and that ain't necessarily a bad thing in my book.
Got that gyros yearning. I hope Christmas break for the UW is soon, so I can take my kids downtown to Parthenon's without the extra aggravation.
Also I've been curious to try out Gus's, since he's moved out of the PDQ (which is now a Kwik Trip) and has opened a food truck / little greenhouse structure behind it.
I got hooked on Doner Kebabs while in Germany in the 90s. Gyros/Kebabs are my weakness. Any time it's an option that's what I get. My wife is Bulgarian (borders Greece) so we eat lots of Mediterranean feed anyway.
Definitely! There are three places. Unfortunately, the one closest to me isn't the best of the three. I don't think any of them are truly authentic Greek, not that i really know any different. Don't ask me to spell their names.
If you want to try Gus's, you might as well go all the way to Gus's Diner on 19 in Sun Prairie. Same owner, same stuff. Better seating for sure.
We have a little gag I sometimes use at the end of a gig: "Good night, ladies and gentlemen, and remember: if you're stopping on the way home for a Doner Kebab, make sure you know who the 'doner' was!"
I lived for a few years in Astoria, Queens, near Ditmars ave. which is the biggest Greek community outside of Greece. EVERYONE and almost every restaurant was Greek, I mean really Greek. I still daydream about the food. Gyros, yeah sure, but so so much else besides.
I've been to Gus's diner in SP a bunch of times. They do the gyros there? I know the one that was at the gas station, that was kind of their specialty, I mean, they have the big gyro pillar and all. Don't know that I've seen that in SP
Sorry a “decent gyro” is a contradiction in terms to me.
