The Greek Gyros & Pizza

Phew, finals are over, and I finally have a guilt-free chance to catch up on blogging. First up, I’ve been able to visit the newest tenant in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, The Greek, twice now. My first visit was for The Greek’s Grand Opening, when they were giving out free slices of pizza:

I thought the pizza was only so-so–decent toppings and slightly dry crust–and also wasn’t too pleased that the owner referred to folks who stopped by for the free pizza he was advertising as “freeloaders” later on his facebook/twitter (come on guy, what did you expect? I did buy a piece of baklava though). Otherwise though, the owner is really friendly and was chatting up customers both on this first visit and when I returned about a week later to try a gyro:

The gyro was really delicious, and they do NOT skimp on the meat at The Greek! I mean I could barely finish the thing and I was famished when I showed up. The meat is well-seasoned and thick-sliced and though the generous helping of tzatziki makes it pretty messy, it was a good accompaniment. I was really pleased with the gyro and may make this my go-to to satisfy my gyro cravings.

The Greek is open Mon-Sat for lunch and offers a ton of authentic salads, appetizers (the stuffed grape leaves looked awesome), gyros, kabobs, and pizzas. Check out Live to Feast and Foodie Buddha‘s reviews of The Greek as well!

    Northern/Greek Sense of Humor may explain the Freeloader comment. What? People eating free food aren’t free loaders? Most of my friends on facebook know my sense of humor.
    Glad you enjoyed the Gyro! Come try a whole pizza or fresh slice, not pies that were sitting on the counter waiting for people to eat. It’s just not the same.

    I’ll let the comment slide on you being a Northerner alone :-) Y’all can be so abrasive sometimes!

    The gyro really was fab, I loved it! Thanks for stopping by the blog!
