The Greek place (I don't remember the name)

We went to the food court at 2450 Main in Irvine on Saturday intending to try the Italian Beef and / or the chili dog at Chicago's Best only to find out that they are only open five days a week (I'm going back tomorrow). Next to Chicago's best is a Greek establishment, and I apologize for not remembering the name. We decided to give them a try. I asked them if they made their own gyros or if purchased, from whom did they buy. I was gratified to find that they buy Athenian Gyros from Chicago. (My cousin's son used to work for Athenian, and I like it's flavor.) We opted for two gyros sandwichiches with a side and drinks. Came to about $20. Their tzatziki is served on the side (for better drip control) and could use a little more flavor, but all in all, a very good sandwich and worth a trip back to try the rest of the menu (they also serve felafel). Tomorrow I'm going back to Chicago's best. We'll see.

  1. Is the gyro meat there the frozen processed meat loaf variety or does it resemble al pastor on a spit?
