Gyro World in Factoria Mall

Gyro World - Greek (3.5 Stars)

First, you’ll have to forgive my camera phone images. From now on, I’ll use my actual 7MP camera. I do, however, love how I can auto-upload the pictures along with captions and keywords directly from my phone via Pixelpipe (thanks Android Marketplace!), so you may just have to endure a mix of the two.


Gyro World in the Factoria Mall is a gem of a restaurant. With a dozen or so tables that always seem to be packed at lunch time, it’s one of the few restaurants still active in the mall. With Orange Julius and a pizza place along with Chinese food and a Thai restaurant going out of business, it’s nice to know you can get your shoes repaired next door or shop at Target before or after grabbing a quick bite of really tasty, albeit from a somewhat limited menu, Greek fare.

The Spanikopita Plate with a side of the Greek seasoned fries (along with sides of ketchup and tzatziki) is Carrie's usual order. She loves it and has ordered it consistently over the past several years. Who knew mall food could be this flavorful?

My usual choice waffles between the Super Traditional Gyro and the same thing but with chicken, though I did spice things up by adding their side of hummus this time. They do offer whole wheat pitas (which, for some reason, I always forget to substitute). The meat is a bit crispy, very tender and juicy, and never fails to hit the spot. Their hummus has a strong tahini flavor, as it should, but doesn’t deliver in terms of the garlic twang I’ve come to look for.

Overall, the
meal is inexpensive and definitely worth stopping by, even if you use Old Navy or DSW shoe shopping as the main excuse to get you into Factoria Mall.

Hi there, Alice!

My coworker, Carrie, and I have been eating here for years now! Given it's "Factoria Mall" fare, it's surprising how consistently delicious it really is. :)
