Chrys's Greek Restaurant - Old Orchard Beach, Maine

We were intending to meet some friends for dinner here but they weren't able to make it. So sad for them. ;D I ordered the Mezzethakia ($10.95) and my husband had just the gyros sandwich ($6.95). Service was friendly and prompt. The dining room was very clean with nice, don't drink so I can't comment on their beverage selections.

They probably don't make their own gyros spits, but they meat they serve is still about 500% better than any of the lame gyros I've had in Vermont. At least they're actually on a rotisserie. I found the gyros meat (which was part of my appetizer plate) tasty, spicy, well-cooked, slightly browned, and totally worth the trip. The tzatziki was wonderful. It -has- to be fresh made there. It was very garlicky, which how I love it best. Also on my plate were two well-stuffed domathes filled with ground lamb, rice, and spices. YUM! Several slices (at least six or seven) of lounaki (eerr somethng like that) sausages that went very well with the tzatziki, a wedge of spanokopita, and 7 kalamata olives. The spankopita was a little squidgey and I wouldn't order it under normal circumstances anyway. I can't recommend it.

My husband's gyro was -very- full of meat and the veggies were fresh. We couldn't eat more and ended up bringing a bunch back to the motel with us. I'm sure people with normal sized stomachs would find appetizers and mains plenty more than filling.

I highly recommend this place over what looks like a plethora of frightening options in the OOB main drag. :)
