This Greek deli is located in a Galleria gas station. There are a couple of small tables and a long counter with stools that overlooks the pumps, but most people get their food to go. While the moussaka is excellent, gyros dominate the menu. There is a gyro sandwich, a combo plate with gyro meat and chicken, and a Greek salad with gyro meat slices served over top. The gyro plate comes with enough meat and condiments to make a couple of sandwiches.
