"gyros don't get any better than this" -Rocky M.

Greek Food meets the American Dream

Our parents and grandparents immigrated to the United States from Greece with only a few dollars and a big dream - to make it in this wonderful land of opportunity.  Their passion for people and delicious, made-from-scratch Greek food naturally led them into restaurants where they worked tirelessly year after year, eventually leading them to the famous Parthenon Gyros.


Parthenon was the first Gyro (pronounced YEER-o) restaurant in the great state of Wisconsin and we’re proud to be one of the only remaining restaurants in the entire country to still make our own Gyros and Greek yogurt (for the sauce) entirely by hand from simple, high quality ingredients. It’s the real deal, folks...

no weird fillers, preservatives or chemicals – just real food done right!

Today, we're proud to be the third generation to continue our family legacy at Parthenon Gyros. We’re forever grateful to the millions of Parthenon fans around the world who have embraced us wholeheartedly for all these years and who inspire us to continue to serve the best house-made, iconic Gyros in America!

Σας ευχαριστούμε, με αγάπη (We thank you all, with love),

Dimitri + Erin

Parthenon Gyros is a third generation Greek family owned

and operated award-winning Madison institution,

making America's Best House-Made Gyros since 1972.

Our world famous Gyro sandwich is crafted in house by grinding premium lamb and beef and mixing in simple, natural spices like imported Greek oregano and house-ground pepper. Then we sear the Gyro meat to sizzling perfection on our rotisserie fire grills, slice it thin on grilled pita bread and top it with sliced onions and fresh parsley, ripe tomatoes and cool and tangy tzatziki, a cucumber garlic sauce made from our own house-made probiotic Greek yogurt. 

(Our signature sandwich and most popular item by far!)
