Zoi’s Gyros Corner

1865 Broadway St.

Stop in at Zoi’s Gyros Corner for a delicious fare straight from the Mediterranean. This restaurant may be small in size, but Zoi’s food is full of big flavor and healthy options that vegetarians will love, too! Although there are many specialty gyros to order from the traditional gyro is always a go-to favorite. This pita bread sandwich is simple and tasty with tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce smothered gyro meat. Make sure to get a side of garlic hummus to dip it in for an extra zesty flavor pairing!
