When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Chicago-inspired fare and drinks at Chicago Gyros.
Founded in Cincinnati in 1981 by native Grecian Bill Sakkas, Chicago Gyros treats Ohioans to Second City–style dishes and authentically succulent Greek fare. Chicago Gyros’ satellite location in Dayton boasts an array of Chicago staples, including the namesake sandwich piled to the rafters with gyro meat, tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce ($4.50). Their classic Chicago dog saddles a Vienna Beef hot dog with an ensemble cast of condiments, including mustard, relish, celery salt, and a pickle spear ($3.50), while the gyro dog ($3.35) fuses gyros and hot dogs together like two hydrogen atoms of deliciousness. Diners can also conquer the italian beef ($5.50), thin folds of au jus–doused shaved beef served with a handful of napkins and an instructional video on proper consumption stance.
