The other Chicago standard that I frequently miss. Somehow most other cities don’t get it quite right, always skimping on meat or putting things like lettuce (gasp) in there. This is from some random dive out in the west ‘burbs with maybe three counter seats.


“Eggs a la Greek” – gyros strips, scrambled eggs and fried potatoes.
We’ve frequented Tony’s, a cute little neighborhood diner/cafe near our house, almost since the day we moved in, about 6 years ago.  I almost always get breakfast tacos, but today, I decided to try something a little different.  I actually have a rather unhealthy fixation on gyros, so it’s kind of weird that I’ve never tried this dish before now.  I ended up making little gyros, egg & tzitziki sandwiches with the pita.  Super yum.
