Taziki's - West Little Rock

I can't believe how long it took me to go to Taziki's - many of my friends have been talking about how great it is!  They added a second location at Chenal Creek, the shopping center which also includes Cold Stone Creamery, so they are really close to the office and the house.  On my first visit, I had some hummus with my friends.  I also had the lamb gyro which was not like the shaved lamb that many other Greek restaurants in town usually serve.  The Taziki's lamb gyro could easily be mistaken for the beef tenderloin gyro.  It's tender, tasty, and has that distinct lamb flavor that I love.  Pictured above is the beef tenderloin gyro that I had on my second visit to Taziki's during the same week.  The pita was so warm, soft, and toasty with the tzaziki sauce that I also had as an appetizer with Gianna.

There are several variations of the popular tzaziki sauce.  Usually it's made with Greek yogurt and cucumber.  The Taziki's version seemed to have grated the cucumber, and there's also dill in the sauce.  It's also amazing to me how fast the food comes out.  You order at the counter, pick a table, and in about 5 minutes your food is there!  This happened to me twice in one week.  Each time, everything that we ordered was delicious and not lacking in quality at all!  I may not have voted for the owner in the last election, but I do vote Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe as one of my new faves in West Little Rock!
The gyro came with a side (I picked the tomato and cucumber salad with feta) and some chips.  There was plenty to eat, and the price was really reasonable for lunch.  These days, under $10 makes me happy!
