BEST SANDWICH
PORK GYRO AT LITTLE VILLAGE GRILL

Staff Pick

Last fall, we wrote despairingly of the lack of authentic gyros in Charlotte. Real Greek gyros are tightly stacked meat on skewers. They are not the cone of pressed beef and lamb trimmings with bread crumbs and seasonings that people have come to know as Greek gyros — this is an American invention. But in January, Cindy and John Georgopoulos, owners of the Little Village Grill, decided to make real pork gyros. They marinate the pork, cook it via a rotisserie and then finish it off on the griddle. The taste of this gyro is remarkably similar to the gyros of Athens. 710 W. Trade St., Suite G 704-347-2184
