Pretty much obsessed with the white sauce and pita... and the buffalo wings! the owner and his daughter were at the registers taking orders. nice family feeling. seating left something to be desired but it's fast food not fine dining, right? so be it.

It's like going back in time. My first trip was in 1974 to see the circus at MSG, then I told my friends about it and became required dining before and after concerts at MSG from high school and beyond. I still stop in for a quick lunch once in a while and the taste and preparation are exactly the same as they were 36 years ago and that's good! There is usually enough seating upstairs for the overflow and don't be afraid to share a table with other diners. Costs are very reasonable. I do remember paying around $2.50 for a gyro, but that was a long time ago. Try the Greek fries, they haven't changed either. With the pizza/salad concession opposite the Greek side, there is something for everyone. Enjoy!

Been a customer here for over 30 yrs. No question...Gyro II is one of the best places in NYC for satisfying, quality sandwiches/food -worth every dime of their cost! Often crowded, the service is remarkably quick. My biggest challenge (at times) is locating a table/spot to enjoy my purchase!

Watery sauce (& too sweet) and the meat tastes wierd.

I read the reviews and was so excited to try this place. I'm guessing the rave reviews are from people who rave about the food at a street fair or shopping mall. This was the most unauthentic gyro I've ever had. First of all, the meat was not even on the rotisserie but rather in an oven. It was orange colored and dry looking. The lettuce was brown. Tomatoes were mushy. Sauce - well you can read the other comments - it tasted like miracle whip to me. Who wants something sugary sweet on a gyro? Where is that tangy, onion-y, garlic-y, cucumber-y tzatziki? It's not even an option? Feta was low-quality. Left me craving a real authentic greek gyro. Astoria, I will never be unfaithful again.

I am in NY visiting, having left 32 years ago for LA. I am looking forward to one of my must-stops when I come east -- a visit to Gyro II for 1 or 2 gyros! It used to be a must-stop en route to Knick games years ago, and I can't find a better gyro in CA. While the sauce may not be as authentic as tzatziki, I grew up on this sauce and make my own whenever I get a gyro at a Greek festival in LA. The person above who approximated the sauce is quite correct: mayo, thinned out with a little vinegar, a pinch of sugar, with some dill and paprika added. Yum! It's all what you are used to: this is part of NY comfort food to me. But I once tried to ask for a "yeero" pronounced the correct way, and I gave up after about 4 tries and said "Jiro". LOL.
