222 West Wash Parthenon Gyros

It All Began in 1972 with Greek Food and the American Dream

Parthenon Gyros is a third-generation Greek family-owned and operated award-winning Madison institution, making America’s Best handcrafted Gyros since 1972.

​Our story began when our parents and grandparents immigrated to the United States from Greece with only a few dollars, few options, and a big dream – to make it in this wonderful land of opportunity.  Their passion for people and delicious, simple, made-from-scratch Greek food naturally led them into restaurants where they worked tirelessly year after year, eventually paving the way to the famous Parthenon Gyros.

Parthenon was the first to bring the Gyro (pronounced YEER-o) to the great state of Wisconsin and we’re proud to be one of the only gyro restaurants left in the country to still make our own Gyros (and sauce) entirely by hand from simple ingredients. It’s the real deal, folks – no fillers, no preservatives, no chemicals – just real food done right!
