Three sons of a Greek immigrant have cracked the code on bringing the authentic gyro experience to Westchester. Pelham’s GoGreek commits to the fresh quality of its meat and uses no fillers, just pure savory pork alongside tomato, lettuce, and red onion, tucked away with fries and a friendly side of tzatziki to make the ultimate gyro. The speedy New York lifestyle and Greek food combine for a fast, fresh, easy-to-hold bite that is good for the mind, soul, and belly.
