Olympus gyro on 60 is decent. But the meat can be on the salty side at times.

Mike and Tonys has a legit gyro. Kenny the kangaroo that they recently opened one somewhere other than the souf side, but cant remember where. Downtown possibly?

My Big Fat Greek Gryo is alright but not gr8.

Theres a good gyro place on lincoln way in white oak called rodos. In classic yinzer fashion the portions are out of control, and the food is quality.

Mike & Tony's opened another store in Bridgeville, right next to LA Fitness in the Great Southern Shopping Center. They also have a liquor license and outdoor seating. Pretty sweet to leave the gym then go ruin it with a gyro -- but worth it. :fist:

Was the one in port matilda along 220? The road you had to use to get from Altoona to state college pre- Interstate 99?

Also, I remember that being not associated with the one in Blairsville.

If you're dahn Beaver County way the Backdoor Burger at the Backdoor Tavern is phenomenal. Big grilled burger with crispy bacon, ham, grilled mushrooms & onions & melted swiss cheese on a big ass toasted bun. Its like an orgasm in your mouth. Wait....maybe I should rephrase that.
. :/

They also have a good selection of craft beers

That's the one. I was never sure if they were the same ownership or not. I've had BBQ from each and both were delicious.

Is the Circle Bar still on the square? Or they get the boot? Used to have some kick arse St. Lou ribs.
Honkys might feel a lil uncomfortable going in though.
