I have eaten at Oakland Gyros for a long time and just got the opportunity to write this review. I gyros are the best. They give you enough meat that you would need 2 pita breads to use all the meat. The service is wonderful and fast. When I did eat in the server was very polite and fast. I... More

This is the place where people will go out of there way to find great food at a great price. A hungry person can be filled for under $10.00. The gyro has lamb, chicken, olives, feta cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, special cucumber sauce, onions, hot pepper and that flat bread over rice. That's usually what I get because it's so good.... More

Great Gyros. Good value. The Gyro is sizeable. Great customer service...very fast. When busy someone will go down the line and take your order. They will refill your beverage and take your tray for you when you are leaving. We go frequently. Parking is on the street and can be a problem on weekends. Don't forget change to plug the... More

The food is really bad but it's a good solution late at night. It's kind of cheap and they serve different kinds of food. Go only when it's the only restaurant open in the area.

Sometimes longtime local eateries get lazy overtime and live on their reputation rather than trying to enhance it. Not so Oakland Gyros. It earns all the respect it is given. Large portions at a very fair price will have you eating heaping gyros and a small paper basket overflowing with fries shoulder to shoulder with families, college students, and old... More

In Texas, we have great barbecue, Tex-Mex and steaks. Greek food...not so much. So when we visit the Milwaukee area, we saw the review for Oakland Gyros and hit it. The portions were enormous and the food was so good! The ztatziki sauce was perfect, and available in a squeeze bottle for the table. Yum! I had the gyros with... More

I come here before and after Brewer games, or just late at night because I'm bored and lonely. The food here never fails to impress. I always order a gyro plate, athenian chicken, and a lamb shank. These guys know me whenever I stop by. Little to no wait for food. Killer Greek food at a great price. I come... More

I was first introduced to Oakland Gyros decades ago as a high schooler, years later, and an impending move from the city, I had to visit one last time. Super simple menu, gyros, Greek favs, fast and fresh. I appreciate how tidy they keep the restaurant and that the bottles of ketchup and tzatziki sauce are kept chilled and meticulously... More
