Have all of my local friends made it to the new Gyro Spot in Dover yet? If you have not been there yet…GO! It is our new favorite place in Dover! I went the first time when they had the grand opening (we did take out as it was so crowded). Everything we had was absolutely delicious! We have since been back several times!
Let me get the basics out of the way. The Gyro Spot is located at 421 Central Ave. in Dover, N.H. And they are open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm. The menu is small but mighty! This amazing place serves classic Greek Gyros all served fresh and fast. They also have rice bowls, salads, soup, French fries and of course desserts!
When you walk in, you are greeted with a smile each and every time. The smells of the meat all cooking on the revolving spit right in front of you pull you right in! Although it was quite busy on the grand opening, we were able to get in and out in no time. They really have service down and keep everyone moving!
Jim had the Chicken Gyro ($7.25) this has rotisserie chicken, their signature G-sauce, onions, tomatoes, parsley and hand cut fries, all wrapped In a grilled pita bread. You will not be hungry after eating this! Jim finished every bite and loved it. The chicken was tender and juicy, the sauce adds a kick and the well-seasoned fries add some crunch!
I had the chicken rice bowl, this is my favorite thing to get. This has a bed of house-made rice pilaf, rotisserie chicken, vegetables and of course that signature sauce! This is absolutely delicious and that sauce pulls the entire dish together with a little bit of heat! I have to confess I love this dish so much I order it every single time!
Let’s talk about these fries, shall we? ($3.75) They are FREAKING DELICIOUS! These fries are no joke, they are so crispy, so tender on the inside and seasoned perfectly with salt and some pepper! These are the same fries on the gyros but if you are like me and get a rice bowl you must, I repeat, you must get a side of the fries! These fries have been voted one of the best fries in the state and we can see why! We ordered the classic fries but they do have a couple different versions and, get this, they even offer Gyro fries. They start with a bed of fries, you can add any meat, then they add sauce and vegetables!
We are not done just yet! You cannot dine at a Greek restaurant and not have the Baklava ($3.00) This is exactly the bit of sweetness you need after enjoying lunch or dinner with some of the famous sauce they serve! This is flaky, sweet, crunchy and just delicious! And if you are too full after lunch, get some to go! They also serve Loukoumades for dessert which are fried dough balls, sprinkled with honey, powdered sugar and cinnamon. I have not tried those yet, but it’s on my list the next time we go!
You can find the Gyro Spot on Facebook as well, so if you have not stopped in, you are really missing something delicious! http://thegyrospot.com/
