FOOD WARS
Each week, one Ann Arbor staple menu item becomes a battlefield
as Daily Arts staffers butt heads over which restaurant makes it best.

Dear Pixar,

Here's to 25 more years of making us money.
Sincerely, Disney

Gyros

a

Dear Daniel Radcliffe,

AHMO'S
341 East Huron St.
Ahmo's surely doesn't look like first-
class dining, but that shouldn't be taken
as any comment about its food. The
Ahmo's gyro isn't anything fancy - it's
just your basic pita loaded with lamb,
tomato, onion, and tzatziki. The gyro
itself is pretty simple stuff, but the meat is
packed with flavor, and when everything
comes together it's the epitome of Greek
comfort food.
SQUARES
241 East Liberty
Since opening, Squares has deployed
a relentless marketing campaign on the
streets of Ann Arbor. If you haven't been
a victim of one of their flyer distributions,
you've probably been living under a rock.
Surprisingly, it's worth the trip down Lib-
erty for a gyro that (literally) cleans up
pretty well. The non-greasy meat, modestly
applied sauce and respectable flatbread
make for an enjoyable and tidy meal.

PARTHENON
226 South Main St.
Parthenon is one of the lesser-lauded
Main Street venues, but once diners step
inside, they're greeted by a friendly interior
and cute (if pastiche) decor. The Parthenon
gyro, however, doesn't deliver. The meat is
well spiced and the right amount of chewy,
but the onions and tomato could use some
more quality cooking time and the sauce
lacks flavor. Potential patrons should spend
their Main Street dollars elsewhere.
MR. GREEK'S
215 South State St.
Mr. Greek's is just plain yummy, and its
gyro lives up to its name. The pita is fresh,
the veggies are even fresher and, though a
teensy bit dry, the chicken is seasoned to
perfection. The best part, though, is this
gyro's tzatziki sauce. To be honest, this
chilled yogurt-cucumber concoction of
yumminess could stand alone. That's just
how delicious it is. So slop some on and
enjoy!

Please tell us your Broadway debut will be in the nude, too!
Sincerely, your fan club
Dear Karlos Marks,
Yo, stay off my turf. I'm the true write-in candidate.
