Gyro Uno has been Astoria's number one choice for juicy gyros for 22 years. You'll also find chicken kebabs, pizza, burgers, salads, soups and a whole lot more at this neighborhood eatery on the corner of Steinway Street and 28th Avenue. Whether you eat in at one of their neat and clean tables, take your order to go, or call it in for fast, free delivery, Gyro Uno delivers good food fast! What makes Gyro Uno so special? Owner Chris Sourlis makes his own gyro on the premises with a combination of high quality beef, lamb and a secret blend of spices and herbs that render the meat juicy and flavorful. His lovely daughter, Sotiria works the front with her warm smile and Helen, the friendly waitress serves with a smile too, making sure you have everything you need.

You can really taste the difference in these gyros; juicy and fresh, never frozen. The chicken kebabs were cooked to retain their juices and tenderness and these are the two most popular items on the menu. If you can't decide between them, simply order the combo and you'll enjoy some of both. You can have these succulent meats piled onto a pita sandwich with lettuce, tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce (which is excellent, by the way) or layered onto a platter with your choice of french fries, seasoned rice or the fabulous lemon potatoes. From the sizzling grill you'll also find Greek style sausage, pork chops, lamb chops and rib steak.
