The Gyro Spot in Stoneham, famed for whisking its customers' taste buds to the streets of Athens with its charming Greek street food, has served its final gyro. A post noticed by sharp-eyed food enthusiasts in the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group suggests that the Montvale Avenue location has closed unexpectedly, a surprising change for the franchise adored for its Mediterranean flavors.

The Stoneham slice of The Gyro Spot's mini empire only just started to sizzle in the summer of 2022, bursting onto the local food scene with their tempting gyros, herbaceous salads, and the kind of indulgent spreads with pita that could make any Yia-Yia proud.

According to the business's official website, since its inception in 2012 in Manchester, NH, the intention has always been "to make the best gyros and deliver them with love to our hungry customers!"—a sentiment now embraced by its surviving counterparts in Salem, MA, and the original location in Manchester, NH.
