Gyroville was created in 2010 from the need to fulfill the lack of Mediterranean cuisine in the fast casual market. Gyroville starts with the freshest ingredients available and prepares them using recipes that combine old-school Greek restaurant traditions with a modern day twist. Gyroville is glad to feature authentic flavors and spices straight out of the Mediterranean. All of it at an affordable price. The concept allows the customer to follow their choice of protein from the grill or vertical spit through an assembly line process where they choose from the freshest ingredients and homemade sauces available.
Our fast casual style offers several various protein choices, including gyro meat, chicken breast, spicy chicken thighs and homemade falafel. All the meat served at Gyroville is certified Halal. Freshly chopped romaine lettuce, plum tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers, and onions are among the many condiments which can be added to your food. Next comes the modern twist on traditional Greek restaurant cuisine. You may choose a traditional yogurt, cucumber tzatziki sauce or become more adventurous with a Jalapeno Spinach, Mediterranean Mustard or Feta version.
Mediterranean restaurants and gyro stands have been culinary staples for decades, and today, a new crop of fast-casual concepts like Gyroville are feeding the growing consumer demand for the healthful and wide-ranging cuisines of the Mediterranean region.
Gyroville provides a high-quality, healthy and modern twist to Mediterranean foods. The Florida-based chain recently announced plans to expand its national footprint with as many as 30 new restaurants over the next five years. Targeted markets include Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas, among others. There are currently nine restaurants open and operating throughout Florida and Kansas, and a tenth location in Ecuador.
For some time now, everyone from the American Heart Association to Dr. Oz have lauded the Mediterranean diet as one of the most healthful ways to eat. Add to that a generation of more adventurous palates and the rise of fast-casual, and the market is ripe for concepts like Gyroville. We pride our self as a healthy food destination and look forward to meeting the increasing popularity of the clean eating lifestyle across the country.
Pronounced just like the word looks, rather than the Greek pronunciation, which is more like yee-roh, Gyroville provides an interactive, build-your-own concept that allows guests to follow their choice of protein from the grill or vertical spit and served in a pita, over rice, as a wrap or salad.

Owner and founder, Lambros Kokkinelis utilized his years of culinary and hospitality experience and combined that with the rich tradition of his family's recipes and work ethic to create Gyroville.
The first Gyroville opened in January 2010 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Initially, it was known as Mr. Gyros until the opening of the second restaurant in Pembroke Pines, Fl. In November 2010 it became known as Gyroville. Gyroville was borne out of the need for less expensive – yet still healthy and fresh – dining options. Mr. Kokkinelis has proven to himself, potential investors and employees that the business would profit in both good and bad economic environments. This was really the cornerstone of his thought process when he founded this Greek restaurant franchise.
The Gyroville Difference
All restaurants claim to serve good food and offer their guests excellent customer service. These qualities are not enough to make a restaurant stand out from the rest of the competition. Gyroville uses a fast casual Build Your Own Concept that allows the guest to choose from a variety of freshly prepared proteins, homemade sauces & crisp vegetables. Gyroville has created flavored tzatziki sauces made from 100% Greek yogurt. Spinach Jalapeño, Mediterranean Mustard & Feta Tzatziki are some of the varieties served at our locations today. We also serve two types of Hummus, which are made with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil & lemon juice.
