Since Moving to the east coast, I've noticed a severe shortage of Greek restaurants. In Utah, there's Mad Greek, Greek Souvlaki, The Other Place, Yanni's, The Med, Apollo Burger/Crown Burger/Astro Burger, and the list goes on. So far, I've seen four and tried two. I might just be in an almost-greekless part of Georgia, but it's still quite sad. Therefore, Dave and I went in search of one of our favorite types of food. Uncle Joe suggested a little place in Dunwoody he'd been to a few times and off we went, hoping that it would be at least as good as Mad Greek on a bad day. 
Gyro-Gyro is awesome! They have a large menu with something for everybody (by everybody, I mean vegetarian to omnivore to kid to...less kid). The restaurant is always clean and the tables are well spaced so you don't feel like you're sharing your food with the strangers next to you. The staff is very friendly and they have a loyalty program/punch card (something I always like.) The food is delicious! Our favorite things are the Spanakopita Wrap, the Athenian Wrap, and the Eggplant Fries. Most people ask about the Eggplant Fries, but don't get them because they're afraid of vegetables or something, but are really missing out because they are, by far, the best thing on the menu! They're crispy on the outside and melt away once you bite into them and they have really good spices all over them. I'm salivating just thinking about them. The only negative-ish thing I have to say about this place is that the gyro meat is a little dry, though still tasty. Now, get your butt over to 5000 Winters Chapel Rd, Suite 6 & 7 in Dunwoody and eat!
