I’m not a certified Gyro Specialist by any means of the imagination. The closest title I could claim would be Gryo Crusher, Colonel of Tzatziki, or possibly Lamb Enthusiast. So I have eaten my fair share of Gyro Sandwiches and can reasonably say I know when I am eating excellence. Tender meat, traditional Mediterranean spices, and dope tzatziki sauce is what it takes to get in the upper echelon of sandwich artistry.
What happens when you abandon pita and adopt a salad? It should be a smooth transition, basically a sandwich but on a bed of lettuce. It makes pretty good sense. What happens when things go South? I’m not talking about deep frying and hot sauce.
I went to Blackwood’s in Conway for lunch and knew I would be in for a treat. I’ve been here in the past but something seemed different. The crowd was smaller, the menu slightly different, and no familiar faces in the kitchen. I placed my order, an Athenian Salad aka gyro salad. Serious, 40 minutes later the salad came out. I was hungry and dug in. The portion was ample. That’s the good part. The salad itself was lack luster in flavor, especially the gyro meat. It was not even warm, tough to chew and the flavor itself sucked. Fucking Deal Breaker.
I will probably go back there although not on my own accord.
Have a great place we should visit? Let us know, offer to buy us a drink, and we can probably make it happen.
Your opinion is probably wrong but leave a comment anyway.
taziki with them. You might change your word association after you chew on
this. Taziki's up on top of Cantrell is definitely a Gyro haven but they've got
some secret sauce… SALADS. Now look, I'm not some hippie, but a dudes
gotta get his groove on from time to time, and that means crushing lettuce.
As bikini season approaches I am aware ive got work to do. Enough justification. Don't start judging me. Shewolf and I headed to Taziki's for some TLC. Salads were ordered. The
small patio out front was just right. You'll find 4 tables with string
lights around he edge. Yeah, it's in a parking lot but the cool spring air
was needed. Clank ordered the Tilapia salad. She was hanging her fist again the table
it was so good. Then she started doing the jitterbug. Crazy, I understand,
but it's true. I went for the Gyro salad. Holy smokes. Think fresh ingredients with
generous portions of man meat, lamb. Final thoughts:
Look here fat ass, go to Taziki's. You won't be sorry. Have a great place we should visit? Let us know, offer to buy us a drink,
and we can probably make it happen. You're opinion is probably wrong but leave a comment anyway. Have a great place we should visit? Let us know, offer to buy us a drink, and we can probably make it happen. You're opinion is probably wrong but leave a comment anyway.
I ordered a Mediterranean salad to start. I didn’t take a pic. You know why? Because its made with subway sandwich lettuce, cilantro or some shit and a dash of oil. Bland city. Then I got a chicken shwarma pita – spicy. Ok, the bland continued right from the salad to the pita. The description does this sandwich no justice. Wait, the sandwich does the description no justice. No flavor. Soggy pita. No spice. Here’s a big idea. Walk down a few shops to that Mexican Tienda and get some Jalapeños. Then dice the fuckers and cook em with some onions and bell peppers. Y’all got skillets right there in the kitchen, I’ve seen them. Hell, go get Sriracha and do us all a favor. Put that winning combo on the shwarma pita. Look, I generally like this place. The traditional gyro is fire and the yogurt plate will fill your stomach. Go here. Just think twice about ordering this Pitaful creation.

3. I almost vom'd tequila. The food rocks. You'll see an Anaheim Turkey Sandwich, Chicken Caesar Salad, and that soup. Please don't be J. Leave a comment.

Don’t take shit from anyone. Drink beer. Eat salads, it confuses shidiots. Use hot sauce EARLY AND OFTEN. Stiegl Beer. ZaZa’s Santa Fe Salad + Sriracha.
Our friends to the north now have their own Zaza’s. This salad was pretty boss in my bropinion. So it was like Asian themed right? I told them “Fuck you son. I need JAPS and hot cock sauce, I mean Srirachi. And I don’t want any back talk.”They made it accordingly. They handed me the HCS.
Outstanding. Fuck RM.
Attention all ye Arkansawyers:
I’m not a vegan I just salad a lot. This salad has it all. You can imagine how crunk I ordered this. Peppered the funk out and fresh as hell. Turkey Supreme
Hold the olives

Small portion of fries came out. Like the smallest I’ve ever seen at Sticky Fingerz. Probably the perfect portion as we are fat as fuck Americans. The burger must have been dope because my fellow patriot scarfed it down with 2 margs.
Comes with Turkey, Ham, smoked chicken and all the usual. Portion was huge. I was full after a Sam Adam’s Octoberfest and half the salad. Was not my favorite salad in town but I would get it again. Order it when you are hungry but want light.
