Food is good and quantity is awesome. The only drawback they just take the cash. My personal fav - chicken sheek kabaab. The service is fast and as its in the Univ square during the weekend its like jam packed as its opened like 2am.

This is how fast food should always be! I hadn't been here since the early 90's, but I will be back soon. The gyros are fantastic, soft pita bread piled high with tasty gyro meat. They give you a bottle of cucumber sauce to use as much or as little as you like. My daughter tried the Athenian Chicken which... More

Probably the best value in a Mom and Pop ethnic food restaurant in Milwaukee. I go back and forth between the Oakland Ave and Layton Ave locations. I think they're both great with a little broader menu at Layton. There is a standard burger and fries menu but the Greek dishes are what makes a visit worthwhile. If you've never... More

Interesting place, where you can do laundry, walk through and order food, walk through again and order a beer to bring back to your food table. But the gyros, OMG, moist, hot and lots of sauce to squirt on your sandwich. I know I will be dreaming about this place for years to come. Do not miss eating here!

I have been going for 20+ years and this place is still amazing. The service is excellent. It is a crowded bar time food place and they have their systems down to a tee and you don't mind their quick and efficient system. Also, their food is extremely consistent. You know exactly what you will get each time and it... More

Great gyros! We think they're the best in Milwaukee. The plate with rice is very good - order an extra pita because they give you alot of meat on the plate! Only negative comment is that it's on a very busy intersection near UWM and parking is a challenge - often on a side street.

I have eaten at Oakland Gyros for a long time and just got the opportunity to write this review. I gyros are the best. They give you enough meat that you would need 2 pita breads to use all the meat. The service is wonderful and fast. When I did eat in the server was very polite and fast. I... More

This is the place where people will go out of there way to find great food at a great price. A hungry person can be filled for under $10.00. The gyro has lamb, chicken, olives, feta cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, special cucumber sauce, onions, hot pepper and that flat bread over rice. That's usually what I get because it's so good.... More

Great Gyros. Good value. The Gyro is sizeable. Great customer service...very fast. When busy someone will go down the line and take your order. They will refill your beverage and take your tray for you when you are leaving. We go frequently. Parking is on the street and can be a problem on weekends. Don't forget change to plug the... More

The food is really bad but it's a good solution late at night. It's kind of cheap and they serve different kinds of food. Go only when it's the only restaurant open in the area.
