Culinary odyssey

Moving to Edmond, the former owner of La Greek in Midwest City puts Mediterranean cuisine on center stage

Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Enduring, simple favorites like gyros, kebabs and falafel are drawing customers into Edmond’s Let’s Do Greek. It is a charming spot that breeds familiarity and friendliness.

I love gyros. You should know that about me before we go any further in this relationship.

Review: Ole Town Gyros & Kabob

A small Norman gyro restaurant offers an Iranian take on some familiar cuisine.

Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill

Ole Town Gyros & Kabob

402 E. Main St., Norman


What worked: Generous portions of exotic food at reasonable prices.    

What needs work: The menu needs to stick with the basics and lose the corn dogs and fish sticks. 

Tip: Parking is scarce. Plan to park in the nearby downtown business district.
