Harry wasn't down for sitting outside to eat but Jamie and I don't like to pass up an opportunity to enjoy the nice weather. With Milwaukee weather, you can't risk missing out on a nice day that isn't cold or too hot. They are few and far between. We sat at a table that was in the sun on the sidewalk along the front and it did get a little warm but not unbearable. Majority of the people at Apollo sat outside. Everyone there on this day was in their 20-30s.
I'll combine all of ours since they are pretty much the same. It'll make it easier.
|Gyro Plate with Greek Side Salad.|
Thoughts: Fantastic flavor to the gyro meat which is also nice and moist. Not overdone. Pita is tasty and soft. Restaurant pita always seems so much better than the stuff you get at the store at eat at home. Why is that? It's a mystery to me. You get an entire bottle of tzatziki sauce which is fantastic because it's so delicious and adds a nice cool flavor to it. The Greek salad is simple yet full of flavor and has fresh ingredients to it. Greek salads are one of my favorites. The feta isn't too overpowering. Since it's in block form and you break it up yourself, it has a nice texture and moisture to it. I'm glad I didn't get the fries because they were soggy (not pictured on this date). It wasn't too busy so I'm sure they didn't have much fry turn over and they may have been sitting there for a bit longer than desired. The servings were generous enough that I was able to take pretty much half the gyro to take home with me for another meal. Definite plus!
After we ate, an employee came by and collected our dirty dishes. There are also little bins by the side door for people to place their dirty dishes, trays and bottles of tzatziki sauce when there isn't someone coming around to clear tables.
Other factors to keep in mind:
-They are open after bar close. A great after bar treat that isn't just all fried food.
-Walk up service, don't expect to just sit at a table and have a server take your order
-Fairly fast preparation for food, especially the gyro plate. So, if you're hungry and don't have a lot of time, this could be an option.
This was a good trip to Apollo. Good Greek food at a pretty descent price. I'll definitely come back again. Good location but nothing all that exciting about the place itself that would get it vibe points.
