Enjoy a relaxing start to your weekend with some delectable gyros sandwiches and other Greek and American fare as we visit Morse Gyros & Chicken–the latest stop in “My Follow Me on Friday” series. Join me us this Friday, March 1st, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Located at 1335 W. Morse (at Wayne), Morse Gyros & Chickenis a Rogers Park icon, having served our community since 1975. Owner Faisal Dossa just took over the business and upgraded a number of the selections, while keeping his customers’ favorite dishes on the menu.
As its name implies, Morse Gyros & Chicken specializes in gyros and chicken. The gyros are every bit as authentic as you would find in Greece and the chicken is moist and tender. Keeping in mind today’s health-conscious consumers, Morse Gyros & Chicken also offers some health-friendly dishes, ranging from salads to fish.
A casual restaurant with a loyal following of “regulars,” from students at Loyola to business owners along Morse and Glenwood, Morse Gyros & Chicken is definitely the place to go if you don’t feel like cooking and just want a quick bite of good food. They also offer delivery and catering.
Faisal will be giving away samplings of his fare and soft drinks this Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and my staff and I will offer a complimentary beer or wine to those who wish to partake in an adult beverage.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
