Restaurant details

I've tried several Greek restaurants and gyros in Lafayette/West Lafayette, Captain Gyros is the best all around. The portion size is huge and it's a great price. The tzatziki sauce is the best. The combo is the best deal and the portion of fries is HUGE. The service is good and quick. The place doesn't look like much, but it's the best.

This little hole in the wall is between The Egyptian Hookah Lounge (reccomended) and Panda Express. The inside is a step back in time to a corner Greek spot. The gyros are amazing and the fries are to die for. The fajita gyro is my personal favorite, cooked on a grill that has some wonderful flavor cooked in. Definitely go with some fries too, those little guys are crispy, salty, and perfect especially covered with some of their wonderful tzatziki.

Heard good opinions about this place, decided to give it a try. Gyro was nothing special, tzaziki sauce was watery. Place is greasy/unclean and a bit worn. If you want a good gyro, go to the Parthenon.

I had the classic gyro. The meat comes from a spit, not from a freezer and it was piled high. The tzatziki sauce was very tasty. The restaurant has no atmosphere, but one doesn't need atmosphere when enjoying a delicious gyro. Prices are reasonable.

Best Gyros in town. The thin fries are good too... So by the combo because it includes a drink. Save room for a piece of homemade baklava!

The building is nothing special, needs a few repairs. The owner is the one that takes your order, serves you up and is very friendly.

Walking distance from campus.
