Famous Gyro George

We were out today looking at furniture, floor covering, bathroom fixtures, and lights, as well as getting shades cut for our windows. It was past time for lunch, and we were tired and hungry and looking for a place to eat other than Subway or Rally's. Dr. Jay suddenly said, There! and turned into what looked like a reclaimed Arthur Treacher's, a place called Famous Gyro George.

It was crazy inside, with all kinds of pictures of Cleveland, Marilyn Monroe, Greece, and boxing, as well as big signs announcing the menu all over the walls and ceiling and windows. They are open 24 hours and serve breakfast all day and night, normal stuff like "The Clevelander" (2 eggs, 3 sausages, and two pancakes, or something like that) as well as a gyro omelette.

We ended up getting both getting the "regular" which was a nice greek-style pita, lettuce, tomato, onion (well, we left off the onion), a huge pile of gyro meat, and a big tub of garlic sauce. It was really good. Juicy, delicious, definitely too big to eat as a sandwich.

Dr. Jay thinks it might be a great place to get pancakes in the middle of the night.
