Definitely NOT the best Greek food – I have been to many different Greek restaurants over the years, and I have to say this was one of the least appetizing.
I ordered the gyro on a pita. The gyro meat was literally (and I'm not kidding here) SWIMMING in grease. Both my friend and I had the same problem, as we'd ordered the same meal.
Most places shave the meat off for each gyro, but here it's put in some kind of fry vat and let soak for who knows how long. It's really too bad, because flavor wise, it was decent. But having my pita soaked in grease from the dripping meat wasn't the makings of a good gyro. I could NOT get around how much grease was congealing at the bottom of my plate.
The portions were generous and the price wasn't bad, but why bother when it's such a gut bomb from all the grease? I was even nauseous afterward, and I've got an iron stomach.
Bottom line - I won't go back there again. I'll look for another spot to satisfy my Greek hunger.
Best Gyros in Tulsa – I have eaten at Jim's Coney Island my whole life and the food is amazing! Something unbelievable has happened at Jim's. They are now taking credit cards which means that Jim's will become a more regular occurance for me.
A True Tulsa Treasure – I've been enjoying Jim's since my Dad took me there as a child. Back then, all I wanted were the delicious chili coneys or an occasional "4-way" (chili, spaghetti, beans and cheese). I've since added the chicken oregenato, as well as the wonderfully seasoned meatballs to my "repertoire." EVERYTHING is great here. A tip: If you ARE getting cheese on something, the "squeeze cheese" actually tastes better than the grated! Tip 2: CALL FIRST to reserve the chicken, whether you're dining in or taking out - it's extremely popular!
Excellent Greek food – I rately get the coneys here becuase I'm always making a beeline straight for the Greek food. You have to try the Gyros and pita, they're superb.
Only complaint about this neighborhood shop is the lack of parking and that they only take cash.
BEST greek food in town – Good family resturant with great food. Must try if you love greek foods.
