Our Story


Who are we?  Two people with a single dream and a lot of determination. In 1980, we chose to make Nashville home for ourselves and our three children, and we opened a small sandwich shop on historic Elliston Place.  When crafting the menu we dedicated ourselves to bringing delicious, homemade Mediterranean food into the Nashville area. This was the first step towards building our restaurant, Kebab Gyros.

Wanting to create a new vision for the already-famous gyros sandwich, the whole family, aunts, uncles, and cousin alike, spent hours discussing family recipes around Aunt Farrah’s dinner table. We all cooked and tasted different versions over her stovetop, determined to find the best one we could offer to our customers.  Ultimately, we created a Greek food menu, paired it with a touch of Lebanese flavor, and Kebab Gyros was born.

Our Nashville community welcomed the idea of homemade Mediterranean food served fast with open arms and happy, full stomachs! Finding that our business was growing, we relocated in 1989 to MetroCenter.  The remains our flagship store, which still stands today.  A 2007 renovation lead us to expanding our menu and adding the Pita Bar, an innovative new way to deliver our delicious food and flavors to you - all wrapped in a warm, golden pita blanket.  Our ambition of serving the best never being satisfied, our menu continues to grow, with soon-to-come pita chips and additional items on the horizon. 

The support that our customers have shown us throughout the years fuels our determination to offer the best menu selections, made with quality ingredients and served in a warm comfortable environment.  For all our customers out there (you know who you are) thank you for not just coming back to see us, but bringing your children back to see us, establishing a generation of people always welcome at our table. After all, isn’t that what family is all about?

To you we offer our sincerest gratitude, with a promise that we will always maintain our commitment to providing you our very best.
