Small gyro joint that makes excellent dishes using spiced lamb. The gyros are big and tasty. The platters provide some fun alternatives. There is limited on site seating and parking, but it is ideal for take out. We regularly grab a platter or gyro when we go off to Peterswood Park for a picnic. No alcohol.

We had been told about My Big Fat Greek Gyro by a friend who had fallen in love with the place, and so we had to see for ourselves. The dining room was shockingly small, and we had to wait for a table. The people taking the orders were the same people who were preparing the orders and they used a little electronic meat shaver to slice the gyro meat off of the big loaf. This is a speciality place, so there wasn't a lot of variety to choose from on the menu. The fries were very generic, and the grape leaves were good, but not very authentic. The soda fountain was self-serve and didn't have a good selection because some of the syrups were empty. But when we bit into our gyros, we knew that it doesn't get any better than this. They heaped on a big pile of gyro meat on a nice fresh pita, and tossed on plenty of onions and a cup of delicious cucumber sauce. The fries were unnecessary, because the gyro was so large and delicious, it was a meal in itself, for around five dollars. While talking with the owner, we discovered that his uncle was the guy who ran the original gyro shop on West Liberty Avenue in Dormont, where I ate my first gyro. Talk about a family business! They certainly know where to buy the best gyro meat. I've been eating these wonderful concoctions most of my life, and this was the best one I've ever had! They had a lot of customers picking up gyros to-go, and this kind of slowed down getting orders to people sitting at the very few dining room tables. I'll stop again soon to see if they've worked out a better system during their busy times.

Pros: EXCELLENT GYROS and reasonable prices

Cons: Small dining room

A quaint, clean place with great people that work there. Very tasty sandwich. The portions are amazing for the prices. There is something for everyone. We love gyros and have eaten them everywhere. These are by far the best we've ever had!!! It's worth the drive if you live in the city, plenty of parking. Highly recommended if you like gyros. Very friendly, inviting place to eat. GO GET A GYRO!!!!!!

I work close by and eat here on a regular basis.
Awesome food for a great price.
It's a small joint and the staff are really friendly.
Only thing to watch out for is around lunch time on nice days.... they can get busy and it might take a little longer to be served due to the walking trail right behind it.
You can call in orders which help if you're on the run too.

I normally go for the Gyro Salad.
You get a great Greek Salad & vinaigrette with the shaved lamb on top, a sliced pita and the gyro cucumber dressing.
You get the best of both words, a gyro AND a salad.
