The chickpea has long been celebrated for its many culinary uses— from hummus, to falafel, to sundae-topper. Laud this legendary legume with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Greek fare at Gyroville, formerly known as Mr. Gyros, in Pembroke Pines or Fort Lauderdale. This Groupon will also be valid at Gyroville's third location in Boca Raton, scheduled to open in May.
Gyroville's menu of grilled, marinated meats, fresh vegetables, and chorus of sauces perform delicious daily dramas for hungry audiences. Pita sandwiches deemed myth-worthy include the Hermes, a mediterranean grilled cheese with tomatoes and oregano ($5.99), and the Poseidon, pulling grilled Cajun mahi mahi from the mighty sea and partnering it with lettuce, tomato, land cucumber, red onion, feta, and Greek dressing ($6.99). Custom-constructed pitas ($5.99), whole-wheat wraps ($6.49), and salads ($7.99) pile on gyro meat, falafel, chicken, or pork, and smother them in a choice of spicy feta, hummus, or tzatziki. Single-meat specialists order the souvlaki platter, with grilled chicken or pork kebab ($9.69), and lovers of a meat medley select Zeus' mixed grill, a trifecta of chicken and pork souvlaki with gyro meat for the win ($10.99).
Seal the meal in Gyroville's casual, friendly atmosphere with a piece of baklava, a sweet golden pastry filled with chopped walnuts, honey, and a string from Orpheus' lyre ($3.89).
The signature sandwiches at Gyroville might be named after Greek Gods—Zeus, Hermes, Athena—but the power to control your mealtime destiny can rest in your hands, if you so choose. The shop's You Build It meals allow you to customize your own dish in just three easy steps. Start by choosing a pita, rice bowl, wheat wrap, or salad, then add one of four proteins, such as gyro meat, pork, or vegetarian falafel. From there, the only thing left to do is top your creation with one of six sauces that are made fresh daily such as tzatziki or Mediterranean relish. Truly herculean appetites can also choose to add one or two of Gyroville's sides, such as spinach pie or hearty tomato vegetable soup.
