Gyro Thursday: Parthenon Foods

OnMilwaukee's Molly Snyder is on a mission during Dining Month to find the best gyros in Milwaukee. Dare we say she’s “On The Lamb” this October?

Parthenon Foods

8415 W. Greenfield Ave., West Allis, (414) 204-8800

This family-owned store opened in 1970 as a Greek grocer. Now, they carry thousands of food items from Italy, Serbia, Croatia, Germany, France, the Baltic region and more. But we went there for one reason: to try their gyro.

Parthenon has a deli counter with sandwiches to go. The gyro, which comes a la carte, is a mere $4.99. Sides are available from the deli case. 

We left Parthenon with our gyros, along with a couple bottles of Greek wine, cheeses and olives, and headed home to dig in. The sandwich, wrapped in foil and paper, was still hot after our 15-minute commute.
