George's Famous Gyros

7620 E. McKellips Road Scottsdale, AZ 85257 | South Scottsdale | 480-874-1354

Location Description:

There are a number of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern restaurants in metro Phoenix that will serve you a gyro, but we bet it won’t be anywhere near as good as the one you’ll get at George’s Famous Gyros in Scottsdale. After all, gyros are the restaurant’s specialty, and as a first-generation Greek from Chicago, owner George Salvaridis has the know-how to make the best seasoned meat on a spit. He learned the family secrets beginning from the age of 8 when he first started pimping pitas at his father’s American eateries, and then he moved back to Greece for a time, where he learned what “authentic Greek” really means. George’s gyros are crafted with seriously good meat, soft, puffy pita bread, and tasty tzatziki made with a 20-year-old recipe. But gyros aren’t the only thing made right at this no-nonsense eatery. The fries are just as addictive, and the menu also features spanakopita, souvlaki, falafel, a fish sandwich, and pasta.
