LA isn’t as well known for Greek food as, say, Chicago, but you can find a good gyro here. Firehouse Greek adds a little twist to its version: After shaving the meat from the spit, they crisp it on the griddle for a bit of crunch, says trojans. “Then when you get it you bite into a garlicky, garlicky delicious tsatsiki sauce that makes the whole sandwich scream hallelujah.” They also make a delish lamb souvlaki (kebab), notes debra.

When it comes to Greek, the great standby is Papa Cristo’s. A bit more expensive than days of yore, but still damn good.

kek is khmer disagrees, saying Papa C’s food is oily and salty. kek prefers George’s Greek, where salad is included with your meal.

The Mad Greek, an oasis on the long, dry trip to Vegas that’s a favorite of estone888, also has a branch in Stanton.

And SecretAsianMan puts in an enthusiastic vote for Mediterranean Delight in Glendale and its fantastic gyros.
