Where can I find the best Gyros in Austin? I've had Phoenicia bakery and Marakesh. Both are pretty good. Any recommendations?

      Milto's is good and has a high turnover rate. The pizza's also good and the greek salad is great.

        The Greek salad is awesome. Of course with anchoivies.

          Here's another vote for Milto's.

          Great gyros, Greek salads & excellent pizza too.

        Austin Gourmet Market, a Phoenicia-like mideastern deli on East Oltorf, has very good gyros and great Greek salads, among other things. Mostly take-out, but there's a few tables if you want to eat there.

        1. My fav in Austin is Kismit Cafe on 24th. Deep in the heart of undergradville, but good nonetheless!

            Kismet is run by Lebanese, if that matters.

            There is also Pharoah's (formerly Pyramids).

          2. There is a place on north Burnet Road, north of Koenig Lane and about 100 yards north of where Greenlawn T's into B. Rd. that has sold gyro's for years. The name has changed so I don't remember the name, sorry. My son is a gyro fan and always liked theirs. Jo

              That's Gyros Plus at Pasadena and Burnet.

              There is a relatively new place that has great Gyros..on the corner of Hancock and North Loop (next to the Around the Corner Store). I'd try that.

              For greek in general, the lunch deal at Tino's on 183 and Anderson is excellent. They have tasty Gyros.

                Agreed, but... My new favorite Greek place in Austin is Jerusalem. The gyros there are awesome, although perhaps a tad minimalistic in the dimensions of their approach.

            2. I haven't tried a lot of greek places in Austin, but I really like Athenian Grill on Colorado (?) and 7th.
