Tonight for dinner I decided to give a new local restataunt a try based on the comments I have seen on FaceBook. The restaurant was called Local Greek.
For Barb I ordered the traditional Gyro with Chicken and and no onions I also ordered rice.
For myself I ordered the Gyro and I selected the make your own. I had the Gyro meat, tomatoes, red onions, olives, roasted peppers, cucumbers, feta cheese and balsamic glaze. I also ordered rice.
This is what Barb said about her meal.
Chicken Gyro w/rice Scale of 10 being best, I’d give it a 5.
Chicken was cubed white meat. Seemed a little tough, undercooked, bland.
Pita shell was thick but turned soggy with the fixings.
White sauce tasted ok. Didn’t remind me of traditional Cucumber dressing.
Rice was Pilaf style, first bite was moist, next seemed to stick in my throat.
If you’ve not tasted traditional Greek food at festivals, functions, or restraunts then you might enjoy it more than I did.
Concept is a nice alternative.”
And now for my opinion. The Gyro was ok however I have had much better. The gyro meat was a little tough and didn’t have much flavor. The vegtables were nice and fresh and tasted ok. The feta cheese was really good. The balsamic glaze had ok flavor however I would have liked more of it. The pita was ok but was a bit bland. The rice didn’t have much flavor and I would have preferred lemon rice.
I have to say that I had higher expectations based on the comments that others have made and I was a little disappointed.
I would say I got an ok value for my money and I did get full.
If you are in the Riverton area and don’t want to travel far for Greek Food then give Local Greek a try.
I will probably go back in the future and try other items on the menu.
