Dengeo's - Skokie

Cathy2 | May 26, 200310:19 PM


VI sometime ago mentioned that there are few gyros made from freshly cut from the meat cone. I can add one place to his list: Dengeo's in Skokie at the intersection of Main and McCormick.

They have three gyros cones rotating. From the counter, you can see their short order cooks slicing meat from the cone into something which looks like a dust pan. As always, I get the date killer: extra onions. On the milder front, extra sauce too. The pita is warm from a quick visit to the griddle. I find their gyro quite fresh and good tasting.

IF I come with a friend, then I usually split a gyro and a greek village salad. The Greek Village Salad does not contain lettuce but cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, feta, olives, anchovies and the house greek dressing plus a side of either grilled pita or garlic bread, I favor the pita. I order extra olives and feta. I collect all the feta to crumble with my fork, then return to the salad to toss with the dressing. It reminds me of Bulgarian Shopska Salad, which my sister independently remarked without my influence! What I also like about this salad, the leftovers are very decent unlike wilted lettuce salads.

Only on one occasion have I departed from my gyro and greek village salad: I shared their chicken ke bob dinner plate with my Mom. There were two generous chicken ke bobs on rice with a choice of pita bread, french bread or garlic bread. It was easy to split this dinner and feel quite full.
