Yelpers called House of Gyros the best restaurants in Dallas. While we won't go that far, it is a very special place. The House is run by the Kaprantzas family, with Victoria waiting tables and Vasili (“Bill”) in the kitchen. Chef Bill might visit after your meal to ask, “How did I do?” Then he might tell you about how he came to America decades ago, on a boat. The food, of course, is the real test of whether a restaurant like this really feels like family. But that concern was put to rest with one bite of the lamb souvlaki, grilled and served on skewers. The House of Gyros family prefers lamb cooked medium-well but still richly juicy.The rest of the menu is mostly hits. A meatball and rice soup makes a charming appetizer, especially since it’s free with your meal. Pita bread is toasty and fresh; top it with feta cheese. Moussaka and pastitsio (a lasagna with cinnamon and nutmeg) are generous, gut-busting helpings of some of the world’s ultimate comfort foods.
