Soco's Gyros

“Hidden gem” is a cliché, of course, but SoCo’s Gyros demands the term’s use. The restaurant’s address is on bustling South Lindbergh Boulevard, but the storefront is part of a small strip mall situated perpendicular to the road. It’s easily missed, in other words, especially if you’re heading south. Plug the address into your preferred mapping app and pay attention because SoCo’s namesake dish is the best in town, spilling over with well-seasoned meat. The hummus is also excellent, its richness nicely cut with lemon juice. Get the baklava to go. You won’t have room after lunch, but you’ll definitely want to eat it.
