This place is kind of run down, next door to a lot of other much slicker restaurants like Panda Express. However if you want a good, meat filled gyros it is great. Stop in and take one out for a good hearty meal.

I've tried several Greek restaurants and gyros in Lafayette/West Lafayette, Captain Gyros is the best all around. The portion size is huge and it's a great price. The tzatziki sauce is the best. The combo is the best deal and the portion of fries is...More

This little hole in the wall is between The Egyptian Hookah Lounge (reccomended) and Panda Express. The inside is a step back in time to a corner Greek spot. The gyros are amazing and the fries are to die for. The fajita gyro is my...More

Heard good opinions about this place, decided to give it a try. Gyro was nothing special, tzaziki sauce was watery. Place is greasy/unclean and a bit worn. If you want a good gyro, go to the Parthenon.

I had the classic gyro. The meat comes from a spit, not from a freezer and it was piled high. The tzatziki sauce was very tasty. The restaurant has no atmosphere, but one doesn't need atmosphere when enjoying a delicious gyro. Prices are reasonable.

Best Gyros in town. The thin fries are good too... So by the combo because it includes a drink. Save room for a piece of homemade baklava! The building is nothing special, needs a few repairs. The owner is the one that takes your order,...More

I remember when this place opened and the food and portions were huge. I stopped back in and was really let down. Place could be much better. Change the name to "E 1private gyro's."

Captain Gyros is a small Greek restaurant just a few streets over from Purdue. The Gyros are HUGE and very good. They also carry a large selection of hamburgers which are also HUGE. The food is very tasty. The clientele is interesting because it hasn't...More

Friends and me would go after Purdue BBall games quite often. We always enjoyed going there. Plenty of gyro meat when you're served your gyro. The fries are fried when you order. They never have them under a hot lamp. The spicy gyro is also...More
