“Greek Chicken Heaven”
Review of Squabs Gyros

Squabs Gyros
Ranked #2 of 83 Restaurants in Melrose Park
Price range: US$5 - US$20
Cuisines: American, Barbecue, Greek
Description: You know the place: simple and comfortable decor with some better-than-expected dishes coming out of the kitchen. The kind of place you go to again and again on your lunch break, simply because it's good, it's filling, and it's easy. That's who we've been since 1972. Our family-run kitchen turns out fresh and hot Greek-inspired dishes that our community can't get enough of. We serve everyone here: all backgrounds, all ages, all ethnicities. Our food, our service, and our welcoming vibes appeal to everyone, and that's just the way Dad wanted it when he opened our doors all those years ago. This is how the Peroulas and Platis family does it.

The Greek chicken is to die for, the Broasted Chicken is second to none and the Gyros is huge and delicious!

Have been numerous times and the food quality is always excellent. Busy at Lunch time so either call ahead or be prepared to have a line. The wait is always worth it.

The food is always good, the décor is fine it's clean. The service though is great especially if you have Kathy. We've been going there for years and she's always very nice, helpful smiling. Even at the end of the night when it's close to closing.

Ate here for lunch and really liked it. Had the house Greek chicken plate and the chicken was yummy! Came with sides, had the house salad with yummy ranch dressing and the Greek house potatoes- very good! Looks like the locals like this place too, as it was busy with lots of people enjoying their food too! Wanted to come back to try the gyros, but our schedule did not allow. Will be on our list for next time we are in the area. You have to come try this place!

The gyros here are incredible, it's my go to every time. The Greek salads are delicious, covered in a wonderful vinaigrette. The chicken is great and they have fast service! Sometimes the people who take your order are cranky and rude but the food is so good I keep going back. The service could definitely use some improvements.
