Milwaukee has a strong and proud Greek community, and plenty of hotspots for delicious Greek food. But if the annual dining poll here at were the Olympics, Oakland Gyros would get the gold in Best Greek every time.

Oakland Gyros is great at 3am when your wasted. Try going there for dinner when you're sober, it's not all that. Meanwhile, I could eat at Apollo for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Guys that run the place are really nice and the food has a much more authentic Greek taste to it. And if you only eat Greek at 3am when your wasted, they are open as well.
