I drive by Gyro House, 3609 W Nob Hill Blvd, Yakima, WA 98902, a few times a week, and every time I fight the urge to pull into the parking lot. This week, I went for it. It's been years since I've been inside and found out from Naz, the owner, five years ago he became the proud owner. Slow hand clap because this dude knows how to create a satisfying meal.
Have you read Rob Phillip's book The Cascade Killer? I'm not going to give you any spoilers but there is mention of this restaurant without saying it's this restaurant. How fun would it be to eat there while reading the book!?
This is a staple in the Yakima Valley and I'll be honest, it was looking a little scary during the pandemic. First, they closed their doors and there were rumors that it might not open again. That was heartbreaking to hear, I know I'm not the only one who grew up enjoying late-night coffee and chats with friends there, so I am SO happy to help spread the word that NOT ONLY are they open, but Mel (the owner) is STILL bringing coffee to your booth or helping you check-out.
