West Seattle restaurants: Gyro Heroes sets opening date

If you’re tired of turkey by Saturday, you’ll have a new West Seattle restaurant option: That will be opening day for Gyro Heroes in the former Baskin-Robbins at 4111 SW Admiral Way. We first reported back in April that this eatery was on the way. At the time, they hoped to be open in mid-summer, but invariably, remodeling and permitting take longer, and we finally heard from proprietor Tareq that they are ready to open Saturday (November 24th). He was there a bit earlier this afternoon as they finished up work, so we stopped in for a quick peek. He says Gyro Heroes will be open 10 am-9 pm, seven days a week. No website yet; we’re awaiting a copy of the menu and will add it when we get it.

    The proprietors have worked very hard prepping the store for many many months.  And it’s not another Pizza store.I look forward to trying out the food soon.

    How exciting! YUM! We’ve need a place like this.

    The falafel guys in Alaska Junction make the absolute best gyro I have ever had. Absolutely phenomenal. But the Heroes will be a lot easier for me to visit. I hope they are good and reasonably priced.

    I hope the Starbucks visitors respect the parking spots in front of the new business.  Wishful thinking?

    That will be a welcome addition to the dining choices, hopefully the Starbucks multi hour single drink seat campers will not hog all the parking.

    I intend to park in any available spot when visiting Starbucks. And I’ll stay at Starbucks as long as I like. The spots are for customers of both businesses and while the large white painted hours markings on the spots are a nice touch, none of it is enforceable.

    Oh please, you really think a metermaid is going to just sit there giving tickets? By the time the landlord calls the police they will have gotten their coffee and left. That landlord would be spending all day on the phone calling in Starbucks customers. Happy Thanksgiving!!

      Metermaid, hahahaha, it’s not the SPD you need to worry about.  They just call the tow truck company and get it towed in ten minutes, $800+ fee to get your vehicle back. You pay to play!

    Metermaid???…wow really?

    If you ask the baristas in the Starbucks, they can tell you it will be interesting in what the parking situation will be. But they will also tell you that the parking lot is to be shared. The spots are marked so that people who would like to come in and sit at either business should use when possible the designated spots. If you are running in to pick up and go, then parking on either side should be fine. Don’t make this a problem between the two businesses. It’ll work itself out.

    I just was informed that the food is good but the take home was in styrofoam containers. Feel free to inform the owners that’s not legal in Seattle. http://www.seattle.gov/util/forbusinesses/solidwaste/foodyardbusinesses/commercial/foodpackagingrequirements/
