Gyros are a mainstay in European and Middle Eastern menus. West of the Atlantic Ocean in the States, many of those who have come to the U.S. from these regions have brought this culinary delight with them. Fortunately for Trenton, the best chefs came to the Capital City and opened up Gyro Express on East State Street.

Opened in 2015, Gyro Express has been one of the best spots for a quick yet tasty lunch in Downtown Trenton. Located at 7 East State Street, the establishment is a family run business by brothers Omar and Abass. Abass is the main chef and probably one of the nicest guys you will meet. During my first visit, I didn’t realize it was cash only. While Abass did spot me the meal, I was back the next day paying it back and ordering some more. The chicken gyro was so delicious…

Chicken Platter topped with paprika.

The establishment offers options to order out or grab an express bite to eat. Their menu consists of large portions of chicken, lamb, and falafel gyros and platters along with salads and samosas.


Located at 7 East State Street Open: Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
