You may have noticed that there are not a lot of restaurants serving those delicious Greek sandwiches called gyros in East Texas. There is one place that Tylerites have loved for the past five years or so, though, that will help you out when you're craving them. What About Kabob and His Gyros.
The restaurant has had a new owner since early 2016, Stacey Corey, and she's doing some things differently. First, she owns Cypress Creek Steak Company, so the beef in the generous burgers that the restaurant is becoming famous for is from her own organically-raised cows. Corey has also invested in expanding the space, so there is an additional dining area and small stage for live music now.
Continuing the already popular tradition, customers are still able under Stacey's watch to grab a permanent marker and leave an autograph, quote, or even art on the walls inside. There is some pretty interesting art there, with more added constantly.
Kabob's employees serve up gyros filled with meat from the restaurant's rotisserie, and they daily make fresh pitas to wrap the meat in. The tzatziki sauce (they call it "tiki sauce" to help out the customers) is made from scratch, as is the falafel. They occasionally offer specials like shrimp tacos, too. Greek salads are available for those who prefer eating on the lighter side.
If you are planning to celebrate National Gyro Day, head over to the restaurant, which is located at 713 WSW Loop 323 in Tyler (across from Chuck E. Cheese). You can call them at 903-581-7971. They're open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Click here for more information.
