The Story of Gyro Gyro Atlanta
The appeal of Gyro Gyro Atlanta, a Dunwoody spot that does the age-old pita sandwich formula proud with top-notch meats, quality pita, and a dollop of secret homemade stuff simply known as “The Sauce.” Our owner Peter started playing around in his Greek family’s kitchen as a kid, and it’s looking like it paid off. While our juicy traditional gyros have a following of their own, Gyro Gyro’s mahi-mahi version is a fresh take on the age-old classic—and have already netted quite a following. It’s not the only clever riff on the traditional gyro configuration, either. We have also come up with a Philly wrap, Southern fried chicken wrap, and even a pita full of barbecued chicken. But for gyro purists, the traditional beef and lamb gyro wrap definitely cuts the mustard. We only use the highest quality meat we can get our hands on (definitely a notch above what you’ll find in most other metro Atlanta gyro shops), and cuts no corners when it comes to freshness and quality. In other words, you can tuck in to that big, warm, juicy lambzilla of a gyro knowing full well that it’s made with the freshest fixins. For maximum results, just add a side of Peter’s homemade spanakopita, a savory pastry with spinach and feta, followed swiftly by sweet, sticky baklava for dessert. We do not serve alcohol, but have a BYOB policy (with small fee), it’s easy to chow down on that heaping plate of Greek goodness with a cold one at your side (best enjoyed out on Gyro Gyro’s sunny patio). Oh, and good news for hungry gyro-hounds: let’s just say Gyro Gyro doesn’t skimp on portion size. Just try to save room for that baklava.
