George Salvaridis doesn't have any reservations about admitting where he got the recipes for his juicy, flavorful gyros. The young chef proudly explained to reporters from Phoenix New Times, "I pretty much copied everything from my Dad." George spent his childhood in his father's Greek restaurant in Chicago, watching him expertly slice gyro meat from sizzling skewers before joining him behind the grill at the young age of eight. George went on to open his own gyro shop in Arizona, naming it for the restaurant where he learned to cook alongside his dad.
Amidst the fiery stoves and bubbling pots of pasta, George and his chefs whip up a variety of traditional gyros—including the spicy Gyro Picado that was named as "Best Gyro" in the Phoenix New Times Best Of Awards. George layers these creations with a creamy tzatziki using his father's 20-year-old recipe. In addition to a comprehensive menu of authentic Greek specialties, sandwiches, and American pastas, he also offers a secret menu, which he shares with devoted customers or anyone who comes into the restaurant singing “How Deep is Your Love” to him in a booming voice.
