Since I live in another city I always look forward to going to this Greek Restaurant. The hummus is wonderful for an appetizer, the Mousaka is perfect, best I have tried going to other restaurants in even different cities. I have tried most of their lamb dishes, the lamb is tender, especially their lamb shanks. Baklava! well the biggest piece I have seen, and I have never seen this many choices anywhere. It is worth the drive, go and find out!

We used King Gyro to feed 60 people for a ""Mediterranean Night"" at our church. Yianni really delivered. Not only did her arrive early, the food was hot and delicious! Most people came through the serving line with three plates of food and we still had so many left overs many people were back the next day for lunch - all for $8.75 a person!

At first glance, the little building at 400 Hamilton Road looks like any other small fast food restaurant, but spend two hours inside sampling the food and anyone will understand why there is a steady stream of customers lining up even in the middle of the afternoon when other restaurants are typically experiencing a lull.

King Gyros, owned and managed by Yanni Chalkias, can seat about 20 people comfortably and has a drive-through. Yanni is a first-generation Greek-American. He and his family opened the restaurant in 1991 using a handful of recipes handed down from his father. Most of the dishes on the menu do not exceed $10, so a family dinner at King Gyros will not break the bank. Parents will be happy to know that there is a kids menu with some less exotic options, such as hamburgers and chicken fingers.

King Gyros is a hidden gem here in Columbus that you must try. The staff is friendly, the portions are huge, and the flavor of the food is unique and superb. Whats more, all the prices are very reasonable. They even have a drive-thru, so you can get your Greek fix on the run at lunchtime. You can visit King Gyros on the web where you can actually order your food for pickup. King Gyros can also be followed on Twitter at @KingGyrosGreek.

my mom and i first went to king gyros about two years ago, and we've been eating their food ever since! the gyros are outstanding and although we have a lot of special requests with our order, it's almost always made just how we like it. and the falafel is better than traditionally-made falafel in the middle east - it's delicious! i've been out of the country for months and have been craving king gyros this entire time - i will definitely be eating there as soon as i get back.

King Gyros is the type of place that you will want to keep going back to. It is a small, simple establishment with fantastic food! I have taken out-of-town visitors there who will then ask to go back on their next visits. The food is truly authentic and they serve up large portions at very good prices. For Greek food lovers- it is a must! And for those who have never had Greek- you'll be pleasantly surprised. The dolmades and spanakopita are two of my many favorites :)

What can't you say about this place. Nice little restaurant not to far out of the way. The food is delicious with plenty of choices. The service is excellent. Yanni is always a pleasure to meet and talk with while you are there. If you haven't tried King Gyro's before I highly recommend it and once you do you will definitely want to come back time and time again.\r

I have tried a variety of foods from there but usually get the Dolmades Stuffed Grape Leaves and the Big Fat Souvlake (Steak Gyro).

My wife and I discovered King Gyros when we moved to Columbus 13 years ago. I was born on a Marine base with a restaurant run by a Greek couple who opened it in 1950. My father befriended the owner, who spoke very little English at the time and they traded English lessons for Greek food. They are still friends today and I ate there often growing up. The owner personally delivered food to my mother in the maternity ward hours before I was born, so I guess you could kind of say it was my first meal.

With due respect to the Greek cuisine of my youth, King Gyros reminds me of home. From the gyros and stuffed grape leaves to the baklava, everything is fresh and fast. Don't let me forget to plug the cabbage rolls and lamb as well.

Bring an empty stomach you're going to need it.

Born and raised into a Greek family, coming to King Gyros reminds me of my childhood. I'm always greeted with a smile and the smell of something authentic cooking in the background. Yanni takes pride in sharing his family's secret receipes with all of us on an everyday basis. You never know what he's going to do next! I don't know what I would do without King Gyros being part of my weekly routine! \r

After being disappointed at ""Greek"" restaurants that really served a mix of Middle-Eastern fare and no real Greek food, I was so happy to find King Gyros. The entire menu is delicious. Before I found this place, it had been about 25 years since I'd had REAL baklava, and King Gyros makes it perfectly. They use the proper honey syrup (instead of heavy, straight honey which would make it too sweet). They add new things to the menu all the time. I go 12 miles out of my way to pick up a meal there. They are usually very busy, and even when I order ahead of time, there is always a wait to get my order, but it is so worth it. Besides, it is good they are busy; it means business is good, and they will stay open! They care about their customers and go out of their way to make sure you get exactly what you want, and they provide the rare treat of authentic Greek food.

On first glance, you might be tempted to drive on by, but don't be deceived by the modest exterior. This is delicious Greek food! We have tried several dishes there and have never been disappointed. The dolmades, cabbage rolls, moussaka, gyros, and souvlaki pita are some of our favorites. My vegetarian friend enjoys the veggie pita or a dinner of dips! Don't miss the Greek fries! We've also tried most of the pastries and haven't met one we didn't enjoy yet. Our favorite is the classic baklava. The staff is helpful and accommodating. They will readily add more dressing or ingredients of your choice, or take items away at your request. You simply walk up to the counter, order your food and then sit and wait for it to be ready. As one reviewer also stated, they do have a drive thru window. This is classic food that is simple and delicious and worth a drive to Whitehall!

Delicious Greek Food!!\r
We went there for the first time with my kids and my kids keep on taking us back for more good Greek food.\r
The Drive-thru works great for us because everyone stays in the car and we can still get something different.\r
My husband gets the Big Fat Gyro, I get the chicken gyro, and the kids like the Chicken dippers with their dressing that it is out of this world. We are glad our friend told us about this place we drive a couple of miles to get to. The place is worth it. Service is good, always pleasant. A very good change from the ordinary.

I love Greek food but have wandered astray in the past months, mainly due to the quality of the food in surrounding Greek restaurants. I found this gem when I was about to give up all hope. King Gyro's is the best Greek restaurant in Columbus, period. The staff is friendly and accomodating, the menu is extensive, the prices are fair, the desserts are to die for and the food is outstanding! The baklava is simply the best there is!
