For Valentine’s Day I wanted a Gyro from Nick’s Greek Cafe. That’s right. Nothing fancy – just tasty, fast and cheap. “Cheap” Park City Restaurants may not be considered so cheap anywhere else, but Nick’s is a great lower-priced restaurant choice, especially if you’re hungry and want something that’s beyond a fast-food chain restaurant.
I actually haven’t been to Nick’s since it changed management last year. They’ve spruced up the place and now have waiters. Before you just ordered at the counter. Now they will seat you at a table with menus. They also have expanded the menu beyond Greek food, with the new owners giving it some Asian flare with rice bowls, Vietnamese sandwiches and JapaDawgs. JapaDawgs are a fusion of Polish and Japanese. Smoked Polish sausages topped with combinations of seaweed flakes, tempura bits, wasabi and bonito flakes. They do offer a more traditional “Red Hot Chicago” dog topped with mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, picks, sport peppers and celery salt.
They still have lots of Greek choices including hummus, baba ganoush, spanokopita, pastitsio, dolmades, mousaka and souvlaki. They have lunch specialties and sandwiches or you can get completed dinners served with soup or salad, Greek potatoes or rice and Greek veggies.
I am always leery of going to a restaurant that offers too may types of food. Does lots of things, but a specialty of none. I was hoping they made the awesome gyros like before and luckily they still do! My date and I ordered their beef/lamb gyro sandwich ($5.95) and we shared a side order of sweet potato fries ($3.50). They also have chicken and pork gyros too. On a side note, one of my favorite places to get a gyro is from the Apollo Burger (Greek owned) and they charge $4.99 for their gyro, so $1 more for Nick’s gyro in Park City is quite the deal.
The gyro is huge served on a warm, tender pita with plenty of yummy tzatziki sauce. The fries were served nice and hot, crispy on the outside, sweet and tender on the inside. $3.50 seems a lot for the serving size we got, but I guess I have to remember these are made from sweet potatoes which do cost a lot more than regular ol’ Idaho spuds. The total with tax came to $16.70 which is not bad for a very tasty and filling Park City restaurant meal.
Nick’s Greek Cafe Menu
One thing they haven’t updated is their website. It doesn’t offer much details as far as the menu goes, so here is a photo from Park City’s Menu Guide Magazine which you can find it at the Visitor’s Center or at free newspaper/magazine stands outside of many Park City businesses.
