The Bright Red Hope: New Gyro Food Stand Opens at McKinley Park
I love how midtown’s dining community acts like a middle school class.
Each time a new kid enters the fray, curiosity takes over and, like nosey young teens, everyone wants to get to know this newbie.
The new food stand, Gyro 2 Go, offers gyro wraps and more at a cheap price. Taxes are included on each meal, so you can get a gyro wrap and a soda with a $5 bill (and it is cash only so go prepared).
Here’s the good news: It’s delicious.
So far, I have only tried the beef and lamb gyro with all the fixings – including those lovely Mediterranean spices, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, hot sauce and that tremendous cucumber sauce (Tzatziki).
It’s got good size too so you’ll be full. Wrapped up in foil it nearly rivals a Chipotle burrito.
The owner, Jay, said that Sacramento’s Parks and Recreation Department pushed the city to allow different vendors to begin popping up in city parks. Of all the applications, Jay’s Gyro 2 Go was selected to be the first in McKinley Park.
If it’s successful, there could be more.
Check it out, enjoy and let me know what you think. Tell Jay that SacMidtown.com sent you and maybe he’ll give you a free water or something.
