Musa and Sadejeta Sinanaj knew they wanted to open a restaurant when they moved to Georgetown six years ago from The Bronx, New York, but they were unsure as to exactly what kind, their son Leo said.

They finally decided on Greek because of its simplicity, and with a brick pizza oven already in the kitchen from the previous owners, the Sinanajs decided to add that to the menu, too. They opened Greek Gyros & Pizza-Subs on Leander Road in December 2019.

Leo added that Georgetown did not have a lot of Greek food options, with Greek Gyros being the second option after Plaka Greek Café.

The restaurant offers dine-in and takeout options.

While Leo said his parents had never owned or run a restaurant before, they received a lot of help from Leo's grandfather, Frank Nikshiqi, who owns Frankie’s Pizza & Pasta in Georgetown.


It is from working at Frankie’s that Leo learned how to make a pizza, a skill he brought to Greek Gyros by adding his own spin with the gyro pizza. There are also several other pizza flavors available.

Other menu items include a gyro plate served with fries and a Greek salad; kebabs; baba ganoush; falafel sandwiches and Philly cheesesteaks. There is also a Greek nacho platter, which features pita chips topped with gyro meat, tomatoes, red onion and a feta spread.

For dessert, patrons can try Baklava nut rolls, Italian cream cake or a tiramisu nut roll, among other options.

Ultimately, Leo said he and his parents want their patrons to feel welcome and that they will do their best to make guests happy.

“It’s a relaxed and friendly [vibe],” Leo said. “We want [visitors to] feel safe, happy and be themselves.”
