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.


I’m really much too impressionable.

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