Why We Love Gyros

Gyros! We love them and, here recently, Dallas gyros are becoming more popular.

Gyros are becoming more popular all-throughout the metroplex and for good reason. Gyros are downright delicious! Haven’t had a gyro yet? You should. Gyros are a popular Greek dish of different meats such as pork, chicken, veal, lamb or beef that are paired with a variety of vegetables and served wrapped inside either pita or sandwich bread. They are often open on one end leave the delicious meat spilling onto the plate or paper it’s wrapped in.

The term “gyro” comes from the Greek word meaning “to turn” since the meat is roasted and turned over during cooking. Usually a broiler is used to cook the meat to keep it crisp and yet very moist.

This Greek dish is so popular that there are plenty of variations that include versions in Brazil, Canada, Turkey and even a version particular to the United States after being introduced in Chicago.

All in all, gyros are an authentic Greek dish that everyone should try! Stop by and try our lamb gyro (a Dallas Observer Favorite Dish - ) or ask for recommendations from our staff for a true taste of the beautiful culture of Greece.

Go GREEK For Date Night

Despite humid and hot Texas summers, the weather is now starting to cool off in the evenings - paving the way for some great (and romantic) date nights on porches, patios and with a bottle of wine. What better way to potentially woo someone new, or reconnect with your main squeeze?  Our restaurants not only provide the best Mediterranean food in Dallas - but also the most romantic atmosphere and unparalleled service.

Celebrate that summer date night with a remarkable and authentic Greek food and atmosphere. Sit down on one of our outdoor patios and let the rich smell of roasting lamb catch your attention as your server takes drink and appetizer orders.

Pre Dinner Drinks
Start off with a Chocolate Martini or Flirtini, a cocktail with Kettle One, pineapple, cranberry juice and topped with a little bit of “bubbly”. Looking for something a bit “lighter"? - opt for our skinny margarita with Patron Silver and the best part—it’s only 100 calories!

The Main Course

Dive right into some of the freshest fish in the metroplex by sampling out salmon filet or pan seared sea bass. The candied tomatoes or Mediterranean cous cous will have you convinced that we cooked the meal in Greece before bringing it over.

There’s always the delicious skewered lamb loin and lamb gyro that are all free-range and served with slow roasted potatoes. Tastes are are truly unforgettable.

Sweet Finish

Finish the night off with a small and sweet dessert and enjoy each other’s company on a cool summer evening.  How about our world famous Baklava Ice Cream Cake? It's stellar, we promise.
