When it comes to food trucks and food carts, let’s just say they’re not all created equally. And When a food truck has been around for almost 40 years and still has people lined up all hours of the day and night, you can assume they’re doing something right. When it comes to gyros, most establishments are serving the Americanized version which is a thin sliced processed blend of meat, salt, and who knows what else. It may be tasty, but it’s nowhere to be found in Greece. Not to mention, it becomes less appetizing when you realize you have no idea exactly what you’re eating.
Meet King Souvlaki, the Astoria food truck serving gyros made with actual chunks of meat that can go toe to toe with the ones found all over Greece (and yes they should all have french fries in them). At $5 for a gyro sandwich, this is one of the best bangs for your buck in the city for flavor, authenticity, and price.
