Parthenon Gyros

316 State St.
Madison, WI 53703

Our story began when our parents and grandparents immigrated to the United States from Greece with only a few dollars, fewer options, and big dreams. Their passion for people and delicious, simple, made-from-scratch Greek food naturally led them into restaurants where they worked tirelessly year after year, eventually paving the way to the famous Parthenon Gyros.


To make our delicious handcrafted Gyros, we grind whole cuts of premium beef and lamb and mix in simple, natural spices (we even grind our own peppercorn and use oregano from greece!). We then form our gyros into their classic cones, which slowly rotate on our vertical rotisserie fire grills until the meat is seared to sizzling perfection and sliced off in thin, juicy layers and piled high on grilled pita bread.


We top off the deliciousness with fresh sliced onions, tomatoes, and our mouthwatering, house-made tzatziki sauce, which we still make the old-fashioned way, by crafting our very own Greek yogurt from just milk and super-healthy probiotic cultures (more reason to love it!) and adding cucumbers, lemon, and garlic.
