New Restaurant Review Section
Finally a Great & Authentic Greek Restaurant in Mesquite

1/25/2015 - Our Review On Sunday night at The House Of Gyros

The House of Gyros just opened in the last few months. By the way Gyros is pronounced (YEE-ros). The atmosphere was relaxed, yet fun, for such a small but authentic Greek restaurant. You can hear the quiet clanking of pots and pans in the open kitchen. Everything is homemade and the food is authentic and fantastic. The Souvlaki was awesome and the Loukoumades desert is to kill for. Oh and the Greek Meatball soup sooooo good!. Dan Wilkerson, one of the owners, takes the time to visit each table and answers any questions you might have about a particular Greek dish. We highly recommend that you give this restaurant a try. Even if you have never had Greek food - this is the real thing! Located at 904 E. Davis St. Suite 400, Mesquite, TX 75149 - PH (469) 802-9797 - Google Maps
