Greek Street Food Sashays into Georgia

There is hardly a city or town in the United States where you can’t find great Greek street food. Now, in Warner Robins, GA, Olympia Gyros is serving its neighbors at 670 Lake Joy Road, Suite 150. The Macon Telegraph trumpets, “Freshly sliced meat from a gyro spit. This new Greek restaurant opens in Warner Robins.”

Olympia Gyros offers wraps, sandwiches, bowls, melts, platters, salads, and burgers. Nabor Gutierrez, the chef, manager, and owner, says, “We are a Greek restaurant, but I know my customers love wings, so we have wings.”

The Telegraph notes that most locals who frequent the popular Greek Village restaurant on Watson Boulevard in Warner Robins know Gutierrez from that restaurant. He partnered with Adriana Ivanus, owner of the Greek Village, to open Olympia Gyros. She ran the front of the restaurant, and he ran the back. They’re still helping each other, said Gutierrez, who goes by “Jose” or “Joe.” Gutierrez has been in the restaurant business for about 30 years. Before the Greek Village and now Olympia Gyros, he spent most of his life working at diners, including the Seven Star Diner in New York and the Marietta Diner in Atlanta, the Telegraph noted.

According to the article, gyros can be ordered as wraps, sandwiches, bowls, and skewers in a platter meal. Other proteins include chicken, steak, chicken shawarma, shrimp, and falafel. Most dishes come with a choice of fries or fried rice. Customers may also order a Greek or house salad separately and add a protein for an additional charge. Burgers include an American burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion, a Pappulis burger with grilled onion, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce, and more. The menu also includes blackened chicken and grilled chicken breast “burgers” as well as a Philly cheesesteak wrap.

There is also a kids’ menu, and desserts include a generous slice of baklava or a variety of cakes. Gutierrez said, “We are so excited to be here.” The restaurant’s number is 478-287-2176.
