Gyro Grill’s Hercules Platter? That’s the Kind of Labor We Love

CHICAGO – Lockdowns keeping people at home during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic are building a lot of different kinds of hunger but the new Gyro Grill in Chicago has designed a treat for Greek food lovers: the Hercules platter.

It includes two chicken skewers, two pork skewers, two filet skewers, two shrimp skewers, 1/2 gyro, pita and tzatziki, accompanied by a sign advising: "For Serious Eaters Only! Feeds 2-3."

The restaurant opened May 3 and is owned by Mike Vasilas, who said "We're here to take care of the neighborhood," Vasilas said. "All of the first responders, police and firefighters have been very supportive,” he said, reported Patch.

Gyro Grill will serve "traditional Greek food coming from mom and dad," he said.

"Everything is homemade, from scratch. Our quality, quantity and freshness will speak for itself."

“We use the best quality meat for our gyros," Vasilas said, calling the "Hercules Platter" among the top selling menu items in Tinley Park.

 Vasilas said his staff has been ready to open since early April but delayed it due to COVID-19, adding: "We're not going to keep people waiting any longer.”
