Apolis Greek Street Food

-Grubbing in Chicago(land)
Greek Street Food in Lisle

You might have seen a recent feature in the Trib about gyros in Chicago. You also may remember when I said back in March that 2018's biggest food trend was going to be Greek street food. Well it seems as though I was right. It's really taken off. Thing is it's more so become big in the suburbs. That's where Apolis Greek Street Food is located. Lisle to be exact. I learned of them when the Hungry Hound featured them back in late 2017. I wanted to try them and did so when out there.

Newly Opened in Lisle 

What caught my eye about Apolis was their pork gyros. Made in-house. A rarity in a city where damn near everyone uses factory made cones of gyro meat. Those cones though are a mix of beef and lamb which isn't the preferred choice in Greece. There they like their gyros made with pork. Or sometimes maybe chicken. Apolis offers pork, beef/lamb, and chicken gyros. All sliced fresh from the cone. I got a meal with two sides and chose Greek potatoes and gigante's (Greek Lima beans). I liked what I got but was left wishing for a bit more meat. What you see below is mostly rice. There was about as much meat as you'd get on a sandwich which was disappointing bc it was pretty good.
