The Gyros Project



Preserving Chicago’s gyros signs
. I now know what I’m getting for lunch today. (Greek Corner II in Harvard Square. I love that Tzatziki sauce on their gyros.)

Gyros signs are among Chicago’s best street art. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the best display a loving devotion to one of the city’s most intense fast-food experiences. Sadly, the signs are as short-lived as the sandwich’s afterglow. Except for Central Gyros, every one of the restaurants on this page is gone.

Update:

I’m really much too impressionable.

I’ll smell like garlic for the rest of the day but this thing is too damn good.
