I have gone to Gyros Delight now for a few years, and I absolutely love it, the Chicken Souvlaki, and you get the most wonderful flavorful rice and sauce with this too, oh, and a wonderful greek salad as well, I always order extra pita bread, and their wonderful hot sauce, their prices seem to go up too much, but the food is to die for!Andy Corona
A place to get gyros and chocolate Baklava! – I must admit, I was a bit iffy about trying Gyro Delight. It's a small restaurant on the main drag in Lynnwood (196th) and looks like it would be a little....run-down. However, I was pleasantly surprised walking into a clean, friendly environment. The atmosphere is simple, making Gyro Delight more of the fast-food of Greek Cuisine.
You can order your Gyro Chicago style or...not (still not sure what the difference is). I recommend getting it with feta, which costs a few cents extra, but adds more flavor. And if you like onions, boy are you in for a treat. You might encounter a few large chunks here-and- there and biting into the tear-jerking vegetable might make it difficult to enjoy the rest of your gyro, so be careful!
One item on the menu which, I believe sets them apart is the chocolate covered Baklava. It's rich, it's sweet and nutty and just down right awesome! Although, make sure to share with someone because you might be induced into a sweet coma if you finish the whole thing.
All in all - it's not a bad place if you don't want the run-of-the-mill chain restaurants in Lynnwood.
Not so great anymore, apparently... – I've only eaten Gyro's on a handful of occassions, but from my experience, I've loved the food. Until I went to Gyro Delight. Their prices were right around the $5.00 to $7.00 mark for the typical sandwich or plate for the most part. They also had a "Special". The "Special" consisted of a Chicago Style Gyro, Fries, and Ice Cream for $7.95.
Well, what the heck. I felt like splurging. Then I get my receipt and sign - $9.53!!?!? WTF? I know Lynnwood's taxes are no where near 20%. Apparently there is a surcharge for using debit/credit. (No wait, apparently I'm wrong. Add 0.65 for Feta Cheese, although I was not made aware of this at the time.) Fine! I didn't say anything. Although I should have and left while I still had the chance. A few minutes pass, I get my food (no drink with the "Special" either) and walk out, with a cup of "soft serve" (not ice cream in my opinion) with no lid. I juggle the soft-serve getting into my car and eat it on the drive back to work. Nothing "Special" about it. I eat a few spoonfulls and toss it in the trash the first chance I get back in the office. I sit down at my desk, pull the fries and gyro out of the bag. Fries: they are so-so. I could have made better fries myself with store-bought frozen fries. Gyro: The pita bread is dripping with Tzatziki sauce and stuffed full of lamb that tastes not-so-fresh, tomatoes that look a day old, red onions, and feta cheese. It wasn't half-bad, I admit. Little on the salty side though. I'd get it again (with lettuce, which I was also not made aware that I could add for free.)
All in all, I would have been better off getting just a Gyro for $4.95 ($5.60 w/ Feta Cheese!). Skip the fries and ice cream. But I didn't, so now I'm wasting company time ranting about my lunch experience. I should have gone to Chipotle across the street. Next time I will. If you happen to end up at this joint with a few co-workers, please, for god's sake, don't get "The Special". You'll be wasting your money.
Not bad... – To my vastly superior experience in mediteranean cuisine, this so called "cuisine" that this so called "restaurant" served was a mere droplet of human excrement on my very rich pallet. I however will vouche that their was ample parking, and the waitress whom served us that evening was very ample her self and I might add that I would have loved to sample her filthy gypsy dumplings. In either case I must apologize to the owner for having left a rather large "leaving" of my own waste on the mens room floor, which happened by no mistake on my part.
Delicious !!! – The food is outstanding. I was very impressed with the friendly employees who explained each dish and helped me decide which entree would be best for me. What a bargain for such generous portion sizes. I have since recommend this place to many friends, and everyone agrees this is the best greek food in town.
Best Greek fast-food in the area – This unassuming little place has the best Greek fast-food in Puget Sound, if not the whole west coast. Try especially the lamb souvlaki; two large skewers perfectly seasoned at a great price. Add wonderful Greek music and very nice people and you have a great dining experience.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Opa! It's cheap eats in Lynwood with authentic Chicago-style, Greek gyros and desserts.
Average hohum gyro's with cool atmosphere – I probably was expecting too much trying this establishment - after seeing it go through a major remodel. The atmosphere dulled my senses as no one seemed to be interested in waiting on us or discussing menu selection. Average tasting food and below average service. It is healthy and fresh and you need to be prepared for a messy gyro meal. I don't plan on returning when I have a craving for gyros. The place was clean and quiet.
Pretty good – It's pretty good food! I love their Gyros! The portions are pretty good..for a Mediterranian diet.
