Gyro Uno has been a fixture on the corner of Steinway Street and 28th Avenue for 46 years, serving the Astoria community with delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week at reasonable prices.

Gracious owner Lazarus Angeles and his hardworking team survived the lockdown last year and built an outdoor dining area in addition to the tables inside. The phone rings off the hook with orders to go and for pick up and everyone is sure to get their favorite meal here at Gyro Uno.

Starting with breakfast, stop in on your way to work for a New York bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on a fluffy roll or toasted bagel and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Omelets are filled with feta cheese and tomato, vegetables for the Western omelet, and your choice of cheese and bacon, ham, or sausage with a side of toast for around $8.50. A stack of fluffy pancakes starts your day off right with juice, hot chocolate, or an iced coffee.



At lunchtime or anytime, a wedge of Gyro Uno’s homemade spinach pie is both healthy and delicious, loaded with fresh, verdant spinach, onion, dill, and chunks of creamy feta cheese. Pair this with one of their fresh salads, such as the Greek or the Caesar, and you’ll be ready to face the rest of the day.

Gyro Uno’s pita sandwiches require two hands and a hearty appetite, as they are filled with succulent gyro (YEE-roh) made from beef and lamb using a guarded family recipe. Chicken gyro, pork souvlaki and chicken kabobs are all cooked to order and stuffed into a warm pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, and house made tzatziki sauce for a fine lunch to eat in or to go ($9.25). Grilled chicken, chicken Caesar or gyro can be rolled up into a wrap for a quick and tasty lunch. These juicy meats can also be ordered as a platter for dinner along with Greek salad, French fries, rice, or Greek style lemon potatoes. Other platters are presented with crispy falafel, juicy lamb chops, rib eye steak, fried calamari, or fillet of sole. My pork chops were tender and flavorful, and I loved the seasoned rice. If you can’t decide, try the combination platter with a choice of two meats. Compliment your meal with an ice cold Greek beer or glass of wine.



Pizzas are made from scratch, using a family recipe and they fly out the door with orders coming in on the phone day and night. The quality, light and crispy crust is topped with homemade tomato sauce, fine mozzarella and all your favorite toppings. Order a personal pie for just $9.75, a small pie ($14.75) or large pie ($19.75), to stay or to go. Get two plain slices and a small soda for just $5.75 pick up only or eat in only. Chicken rolls, sausage rolls and calzones are popular as well, and hot heroes are made with freshly baked bread loaded with meatballs, chicken cutlet parmigiana, sausage and peppers, grilled chicken breast and more. A patron nearby was presented with a generous bowl of spaghetti and meatballs as my mouth began to water. Lazarus said the penne alla vodka is a big hit too, along with daily pasta dishes.

Snack on golden mozzarella sticks, crispy fried calamari, stuffed grape leaves or Buffalo wings while you wait for your juicy burger sizzling on the grill in the open kitchen. Swiss burgers, pizza burgers, turkey burgers, and veggie burgers are grilled to order, served with or without French fries, as you wish.

Sweeten it up with a hunk of strawberry cheesecake, moist carrot cake, baklava, and other sweet treats from the refrigerated case, along with a cup of their delicious coffee. The service is fast and friendly too and they will cater to your office, home, or organization for any event.

Gyro Uno has you covered for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week from 9am to 10pm. Pick up the phone and place your order directly for fast, free delivery or through Seamless, Grubhub, Uber Eats, or Slice. Thank you Gyro Uno for 46 years of serving the Astoria community!
