I had been to this place many years ago and had meant to go back earlier..but this being Los Angeles, there's just too many places for all kinds of tasty foods (from around the globe). I ordered the lamb gyro sandwich that was plenty big...More

Papa Cristo's is the place to go for a great gyros in LA. It's loaded with lamb and bursting with flavor. The tzatziki is good and so is the baklava. They know their prices, but it's worth it. It's a lot of food and you'll...More

There are not a whole lot of choices for authentic Greek in LA, surprisingly, so Papa Christos is a much appreciated staple for those looking for a taste of the real thing. The best advice is to stick to the basics here: Gyro's, lamb chops,...More

Top quality ingredients, attentive service and an interesting mix of deli, market and restaurant make Papa Christo's a must visit whenever we're in the neighborhood. As you might expect they feature Greek cooking and imported goods but there's also a nice smattering of other Mediterranean...More
