There are a ton of gyro places all over Houston, but how many of those are actually staying true to their Greek origins? We haven’t ventured out to them all yet, but we know of at least one: Just Grk!
The owners created this true-to-its-roots Greek restaurant based upon their combined 50 years of experience living in Greece, even going so far as incorporating their Grandmother’s homemade burger recipe (SO good, by the way). The best part is they figured out how to do it using locally sourced products with absolutely zero freezing involved to maximize freshness. So what exactly do they have on the menu? Lets take a look.
CHICKEN AND PORK GYRO
These are the staple menu items and boy, are they delicious. The meat is hand stacked and hand seasoned, allowed to marinate for one day, and then slowly turned on a vertical rotisserie. It is then topped with a homemade sauce (derived from yogurt imported from Greece) and some crispy fries!
GREEK STYLED BURGERS
One of our favorite dishes on the menu. These don’t resemble the type of burger you’d see at an American joint, rather they look like meat sliders with the garnishes on the side. They are more similar to meatballs than a meat patty and come with a spicy dipping sauce that is to die for. I think this might’ve been our favorite dish despite it not winning the beauty contest.
ZUCCHINI AND TOMATO FRITTERS
And for you vegetarians, this last dish is a combination of their zucchini and tomato fritters. The freshly cut veggies are breaded and fried and served with pita bread and tahini sauce, with the option of fries, of course! Now I normally have to have some meaty protein with my meals, but I could eat these things all day long too. They have a nice crunchy shell with a softer inside that just melts away in your mouth.
This place has only been open for about four months, and is high up on our recommendation list. They are located off of I-10 just past City Centre, so if you are in the area give them a try!
Price Range: $7.50-$14.95
