Once a Week, Go Greek!

Love this sign!

On the way to a hospital south of Atlanta (going to handle an adoption) my paralegal Toni and I stopped at Grecian Gyro in Hapeville for lunch. Just of I-85, this is a great spot for a tasty lunch. When we arrived the line snaked out the door and since it's a small place, this is probably the norm. After ordering we waited about 15-20 mins. for our food, but it was so worth it! The gyro meat was cooked perfectly and the flavor was outstanding. The Greek potatoes were also very tasty, especially with the "secret sauce" served on top or on the side. I saw several people come back up with their plates asking for more sauce, which was also good on the meat. Toni enjoyed her chicken wrap and we both crooned over the baklava (a pretty hefty piece for the price) for dessert. The only disappointment was that the dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) were tasteless. Next time I'll stick to the potatoes, or maybe try the hummus. The kitchen crew here was great to watch - while you're waiting you can sit at the counter just across from the grill. This would be a great spot to try on the way to/from the Atlanta airport.

The small, nondescript building and deck seating.

The menu.

Side Salad with Gyro meat, with dolmades and warm pita bread on the side.

Chicken wrap with Greek potatoes & delicious sauce.

Baklava - yum!

This place is awesome. Glad you found it! I work on that street and it's packed every single day. He has to have made a small forture in 25 years. Seriously, I think they sprinkle everything with crack. It's delicious!
