Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: for $7, you get $15 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Papa Gyros, with two locations in Canton.
The friendly Mediterranean maestros at Papa Gyros whip up a wide-ranging menu that dons Parthenon-sized portions of flavorful, authentic Greek fare. Fresh and warm pita pockets surround each of Papa’s savory gyros, hemmed with a fresh fortification of tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce ($5.49). The delectable Grecian salad ($4.49 small, $6.29 large) acts as a lusciously leafy lead-in to the Philly chicken pita ($5.49) or as an engaging digestive companion to the dazzling dolmades' munchable grape leaves ($3.89). Douse the torch of hunger with the mighty Olympian platter, a stomach-taming digestive feat of gyro meat, souvlaki, Greek salad, rice, tzatziki sauce, and pita ($9.89). Papa Gyros’ food sculptors have cemented their chops in two Canton locations, rendering the restaurant a delicious destination for either dine-in or carryout.
- Papa Gyros is the best ever! I went to the Cleveland Ave. location before they opened the Belden Village/Jackson Township location. Both restaurants have different atmospheres but they serve equally wonderful food. Large portions, reasonable prices, and the best-tasting gyros ever! – Bryan, Yahoo! Local
- Very good Greek food... their Gyro's [sic] are HUGE. This is a great spot if your [sic] hungry... good service. – Kevin D., Yelp
At Papa Gyros, owners Steve and Kelly Paxos introduce some of their favorite Greek dishes to the masses. A number of these classics are served in shareable portions, including grape leaves stuffed with rice, spanakopita filled with spinach and cheese, and saganaki set aflame at the table. Chefs also drizzle creamy tzatziki sauce atop skewered pieces of steak, crispy falafel, and juicy gyros, as well as any diner's outstretched hands.
