Dominic the Food Critic: Brothers Gyros & Pizza
At OnMilwaukee, we believe in raising all voices and using our platform to support the dreams of others. And that’s what we hope to do for Dominic the Food Reviewer. When I first met Dominic almost two years ago, I was impressed by his passion, curiosity and interest in improving his writing. Over time, I not only enjoyed getting to know him better, but he taught me as much as I taught him. I hope you not only enjoy reading Dominic’s reviews, but also understanding and enjoying seeing the world of food through his eyes. — Lori Fredrich, Editor-in-ChiefA few weeks ago I had lunch at Brothers Gyros & Pizza. It is located at 5158 S. 108th St. in Hales Corners.
They have a large menu which includes gyros, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, pizzas and much more. They also have fish fries on Friday. Their most popular menu items are the gyros and the Brothers Signature Sandwich.
I had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Steve and Chrisanti Itsines.
They had lots of positive energy and took the time to explain their menu and talk about how they started their restaurant, which opened on January 11, 2021. Honey Dip Donuts was in the building before them. Chrisanti said everything in the restaurant was homemade.
The Chrisantis previously operated the Forum restaurant on Brookfield Road and the Baymont Inn and Suites in Grafton. They have three sons. Their names are Demetri, George and Steve. Unfortunately, their son Demetri passed away and they have a purple table at the back of the restaurant reserved for him.
The restaurant is very modern and clean. I loved the colorful painted images of Greece. There is a lot of purple on the walls and in the decor because it was Demetri’s favorite color. They also had lots of signs with sayings about family.
Just had to try the Brothers Signature Sandwich. It included toppings such as sliced gyro meat, sliced chicken breast dipped in olive oil, feta cheese, onions, cucumbers, red peppers, and a side of tzatziki sauce.
The gyro and chicken had great flavor and seasoning. The vegetables were very fresh and the tzatziki sauce was very creamy. They also give you very large portions so you don’t go hungry. I would definitely take this sandwich again.
I also had their spinach pie. The crust was tasty and the cheese and spinach inside the pie was tasty.
For dessert, I ordered the baklava. It arrived hot on the table and had a sweet cinnamon flavor. The crust was nice and flaky. It was amazing.
You should definitely visit this restaurant because Steve, Chrisanti, their sons and their staff were fun and so kind. The food was delicious and they give you generous portions. The restaurant had a great family atmosphere. I will definitely come back here to eat again.
