My Big Fat Greek Gyro



The Greek Food Fest is in full swing.  My wife brings back these awesome pics; she describes them below.



The long lines for the Gyros ($6) are worth the wait.  The blend of lamb, beef and seasoning is carved off of the rotisserie thingy.  Then piled high on top of pita bread with tomatoes, onions and tzatziki yogurt sauce.


The delicious tender roasted lamb platter ($12) is served with, Greek salad, cold seasoned green beans and oven roasted potatoes in a sauce of herbs that is awesome for dipping your pita bread into.



Pastitsio is the Greek version of Mac and Cheese with beef, but a thousand times better with a thick layer of baked cheese sauce on top.  The platter ($10) also includes Greek salad, pita and spanakopita - filo dough layered with feta cheese, spinach and herbs.  You can buy just the pastitsio for $6 and the spanakopita for $3 at this stand.  Also go inside to get two larger rolled spanakopitas for $6 near the exit of the pastry line at a table with Greek cookbooks and jars of food to take home.



Leave room for sweets and grab some to go.  The assorted plate ($5) includes baklava (filo layered with nuts and spices drizzled with honey), melomacarona cookies, sourata (like baklava in a log form), and kourambiethe (Greek wedding cookies coated in powder sugar).

If you can't stay, remember the drive-thru or go to the chicken stand for a whole Greek rotisserie chicken ($9) to take home.

The Festival will still be going on until 9 pm Saturday night and Sunday from noon to 6 pm. Check out their website at
