I don't remember the particular meal I ordered, but it was about 10 bucks. Came with fries, a drink and of course gyros. By the end of this amazing experience I was stuffed. Which is a first for just ...1 gyro. Would absolutely recommend to my friends and family if we lived in the state. See More

Been hitting The Parthenon since 1983! Since I've moved up north, I've been bringing my kids down at least once a year to carry on the tradition. Still the best after all these years. The most recent... visit was shortly after opening, and the meat was not its usual deliciousness. It was cold. Oh well, still tasted great. Opa!!! See More

THE Best place for a Gyros in Wisconsin! Back in the 80's this was the go to place for an after the bar eats! Now all grown up it's still one of my favorites! Whenever I am back in town I need to in! As I said to start - the BEST place for a Gyros in Wisconsin - could be the BEST anywhere! See More

I have lived in 10 different states and 10 different countries, I travel all the time. No one makes gyros like Parthenon Gyros! I need to move back to the Madison area just so I can have them regularl...y! Everytime I'm in the Madison area I make a point to eat there. Thanks for the best gyros! See More

Best gyros anywhere and they make the tzatziki from scratch, home made Greek yogurt! And the gyros meat is also made in house, so it's all fresh and yummy.

Parthenons never fails on the "gyro fry Pepsi." We are from the area originally but now live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. When we are in Madison we try to make the trek downtown to treat oursel...ves to gyros on State Street. The meat can't be beat. These are not just the best gyros in Madison, but anywhere I have ever been. Must go if you love gyros. See More

I like most veteran madisonians have been enjoying Parthenons gyros since the late 70s when it was gyro n fries for five bucks, hold that thought, can't forget a lot of Madison tradition we know dar...n well you don't go across the street to get a Gyro, Zorba's could not hold a candle to Parthenons but then again I miss Headliners Stone Hearth Shuffle in church key the pub on State Street serving Stohes dark on tap, anyone remember? Didn't think so, life's short pay attention. You want a good quality authentic gyro? it's parthenons. See More

I was there on Monday before heading back home, the meat isn't what it used to be, it was hardly warm, plus it was mealy and crumble, it was weird. The quality definitely is gone from their product. T...he only place that still serves the authentic gyro meat like Parthenon's once did is Athens Gyros! See More

Won't be coming back here. Remember coming here as a kid and the food was top notch. This time however the meat was freezing cold..we returned them for new ones. (The staff was friendly about the situ...ation) The new ones were a little bit warmer.. not by much though.The pita was burnt and dripping grease.. the fries were warm, but overfryed.
Oh, and the bathrooms didn't have any toilet paper.

I am never disappointed when I go to Parthenon's and it was a great experience to have my husband experience this for his first time and have it be so delicious for him as well! Kudos to Parthenon's!

I have been a regular customer since 1974. The gyros sandwich is the best I've had anywhere. Parthenon is consistently stellar and has been so for more than 40 years. This is amazing in Madison even great restaurants can fold quickly because the food quality declines or the customers lose interest. Highly recommended! See More

I've been visiting the Parthenon for authentic gyros for decades now. It's my annual pilgrimage when I visit Madison (my 2nd home) each summer. I make it my duty to bring new folks with me to introdu...ce them to jewel of State Street: the Parthenon. I cannot wait to visit again next summer! See More

My first visit here was Halloween 1980. In going on 37 years, it has only gotten better. The gyros are, by far, the best that I have ever had. The meat, cut fresh from the spit, is as flavorful as you...'ll ever find. Tomatoes and onions taste so fresh, you'd swear that they pulled them from their garden as you ordered. The pita bread... Perfectly grilled/toasted on a flat top... OMG... See More

Zach is one of the kindest-hearted souls you'll ever meet. He has worked with Parthenon Gyros for the past 9+ years.

His house burned down early this morning. No one was hurt, thank God! But they lost everything.

Please come out to Parthenon Gyros Sunday, February 11th, or order delivery from us through UberEats or EatStreet. All profits from the whole day will be donated to Zach.
