Situated in an otherwise unassuming area of Steubenville, this restaurant is well-known in the area for having the best gyros. They're huge, delicious and cheap. I'm not really sure what else you could want.
When I was visiting home, my parents and I went over to fill our bellies. My family and I walked in and already knew what we wanted, really. I ordered their classic gyro. I state time and time again that french fries are not typically my favorite, but because "potatoes" is also in the name, I had to try it. We got a giant plate of fries with cheese to share. You order at the counter and they hand it off to your when it's finished.
They slice of slivers of lamb from a giant skewer, pile it on a fluffy pita and top it with lettuce, tomato, onions and their delicious cucumber sauce. By the time it was handed over to me, it was this giant behemoth of a sandwich that looked at me intimidatingly.
Devoured. Here's the problem, though. If it's really a problem. It's so huge that you actually run out of PITA before you run out of meat. Unheard of. But it happens here. I had a few chunks of meat leftover because my stomach would hate me (more so than it already did) if I finished it off.
But it's Grade A meat. Not a single imperfection. The toppings are fresh as could be, and the tzatziki sauce is what dreams are made of.
The french fries were also pretty bangin. It was a huge plate - crispy on the outside, soft potato on the inside. And just topped with cheddar and mozzarella cheese and melted atop the steaming batch.
The baklava was the best I've had. I sometimes find with the nuts that it gets dry and too crunchy and brittle.
This was so good. It was soaking up the perfect amount of honey that made is a sticky, sweet triangle of deliciousness.
Oh, and they give free refills.
