LR Restaurant Review: Mama's Gyros Grill
In Little Rock, my favorite place to get Greek food is Layla's, and I am incredibly snarky and judgmental when we try any other restaurants. So far, nothing has come close to their wonderful, authentic food. So, when Josh suggested we try out this little storefront called Mama's Gyros Grill in Sherwood, I was not optimistic. Boy, was I wrong.
When we walked in, we found a clean and spacious dining room with incredibly helpful staff. I chatted with the cook about the Greek dressing and found they make most things in house. I ordered up a falafel supreme with a Greek salad.
The dressing was bright, lemonly and delicious. I loved it, and the falafel was great too. The balls weren't overly fried, which happens at many restaurants. There was hot sauce and even a pickle inside!
Unfortunately, the hours for the restaurant are kind of weird. They're open during the day, but they are pretty far from where I work and live. They close early at nights and aren't open on the weekends. If Josh and I are in the area on a Friday afternoon again, we'll definitely go back.
