GYRO UNO PIZZERIA & RESTAURANT
Gyro Uno has been a staple at the corner of Steinway Street and 28th Avenue for 46 years, serving the Astoria community with delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week at reasonable prices.
Loving owner Lazarus Angeles and his hardworking team survived the lockdown last year and built an outdoor dining area in addition to the tables inside. The phone is ringing non-stop with take-out and pick-up orders and everyone is sure to get their favorite meal here at Gyro Uno.
Starting with breakfast, stop on the way to work for a bacon, egg and cheese New York sandwich on a soft roll or toasted bagel and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. The omelettes are filled with feta cheese and tomatoes, vegetables for the western omelet, and your choice of cheese and bacon, ham, or sausage with a side of toast for about $8.50. A stack of fluffy pancakes starts your day off right with juice, hot chocolate, or iced coffee.
At lunchtime or anytime, a piece of Gyro Uno’s homemade spinach pie is both healthy and delicious, loaded with fresh, leafy spinach, onions, dill and chunks of feta cheese. creamy. Pair it with one of their fresh salads, like Greek or Caesar, and you’ll be ready to tackle the rest of the day.
Gyro Uno’s pita sandwiches require two hands and a hearty appetite, as they’re filled with succulent gyro (YEE-roh) made from beef and lamb according to a guarded family recipe. Chicken gyro, pork souvlaki, and chicken skewers are all cooked to order and stuffed in a warm pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, and homemade tzatziki sauce for a great lunch at eat in or take out ($9.25). Grilled Chicken, Chicken Caesar or Gyro can be rolled up in a wrap for a quick and tasty lunch. These juicy meats can also be ordered as a dinner platter with Greek salad, fries, rice or Greek lemon potatoes. Other platters are presented with crispy falafel, juicy lamb chops, ribeye, fried calamari or fillet of sole. My pork chops were tender and flavorful, and I loved the seasoned rice. If you can’t decide, try the combination platter with a choice of two meats. Complement your meal with an ice-cold Greek beer or glass of wine.
The pizzas are made from scratch, using a family recipe and they fly with the orders that come in by phone day and night. The quality, light and crispy crust is topped with homemade tomato sauce, fine mozzarella and all your favorite toppings. Order a personal pie for only $9.75, a small pie ($14.75) or a large pie ($19.75), to stay or take out. Get two plain slices and a small soda for just $5.75 take-out or eat-in only. Chicken rolls, sausage rolls and calzones are also popular, and hot heroes are made with freshly baked bread loaded with meatballs, chicken parmigiana cutlet, sausages and peppers, chicken breast grilled and more. A nearby customer received a generous bowl of spaghetti and meatballs as my mouth began to salivate. Lazarus said the penne alla vodka was also a big hit, as well as the daily pasta dishes.
Enjoy golden mozzarella sticks, crispy fried calamari, stuffed grape leaves or buffalo wings while you wait for your juicy burger to sizzle on the open kitchen grill. Swiss burgers, pizza burgers, turkey burgers and veggie burgers are grilled to order, served with or without fries, as desired.
Sweeten it up with a piece of strawberry cheesecake, moist carrot cake, baklava and other sweet treats from the chilled case, plus a cup of their delicious coffee. The service is also fast and friendly and they will respond to your office, home or organization for any event.
