Legacy Gyros' kings of the kitchen sling a sizzling selection of hearty Hellenic comestibles. Diners can ease into appetite appeasement with flame-nuzzled saganaki and pita chips ($6.99) or a plate of spanakopita with creamy tzatziki sauce ($3.49). Graze on a Greek salad, a bustling agora of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, olives, and feta cheese, or ostracize the lettuce while retaining the rest with the Athenian version (both $4.99/small, $6.49/large). The signature gyro piles succulent lamb ($5.99) or chicken ($6.99) atop a choice of rice, pita, or lavash flatbread wrap, and the Gyros Supreme magnifies munchability with a slew of grilled onions, mushrooms, cheese, and peppers ($6.99/lamb, $7.99/chicken). Achieve entree eudemonia with a chef’s specialty such as moussaka, a layered blend of eggplant, potatoes, and ground beef, or dolmades, a garden of grape leaves stuffed with ground beef, rice, and herbs ($8.99 each). Even wholly sated stomachs should leave room for honey-infused baklava, the traditional Greek dessert that sealed victory for the Spartans at the legendary Bake Sale of Thermopylae ($2.49).
