Tino's on 2222/Mopac

Saw this place trying to open on my way to Starbucks and had to try it out today. (I'm a total sucker for a well-made gyro).

It's kind of hard to find if you're not looking. It's tucked next to Craig-O's pizza in the parking lot opposite from the Randall's.

Ambiance isn't much to speak of with a cafeteria-style presentation and just a smattering of small tables, but the place was totally packed.

Decided to get the gyro (4.99), although they offered a lunch plate with meat and two sides for $6ish.

Meat was lean and flavorful, pita bread was a wheat version and while not quite as good as Milto's bread, still fluffy/soft/flavorful. They added a bit of feta and cucumber, which was an interesting contrast in flavors/textures and otherwise had the typical lettuce/tomato/onion. My dissapointment was in the tzadziki sauce which was very, very mild (like mine with a tart punch). Considering how close it is to work (vs. Milto's which just is a smidge too far to make in an hour) and the reasonable price and great meat to bread ratio, I'll be back.

Next trip - lunch plate with chicken (which is on a spit like the gyro meat), baba ghanouj and vegetarian moussaka.
