Riverfront Times' Description

CLOSED The walls could use a fresh coat of paint, but maybe that's part of the charm of this quintessential college-nabe cheap-eats Middle Eastern joint. You got your hummus, your Greek salads, your falafel...and, yes, your gyros -- which rock. They're available in standard form or with jumbo helpings of meat and feta or in a house-special version topped with hummus instead of tzatziki. Baklava is what's for dessert. Everything costs less than ten bucks (most of it's under $7), and the portions are big enough to stash in your dorm room's mini-fridge to see you through those wee-hour cravings.

    While it is true that you will no longer find Gyro House at 571 Melville, you can head down to 6152 Delmar across from the Pageant and get the same gyro that I have made since I learned from Ahmed nearly 20 years ago. Look for me on Saturdays http://www.stlouisgyrohouse.com/

    If you've ever had a Donor Kebab (spelling??) in Europe - you'll love the Gyro House!

    You can't lose and won't go hungry if you take on the Jumbo Gyro!

  • Nathan H. on 03/13/10

    The gyro's here are tasty and huge. The jumbo with feta is the way to go!

  • Shondra A. on 09/03/11

    The jumbo gyro is now called "lion's gyros". Still tasty!

    One word: gyro baby

  • John D. on 01/11/10

    Unless you like eating your gyro with a knife and fork, order it "to go" to have it tightly wrapped in aluminum foil.
