Sababa Mediterranean Grill Has The Gyro Columbus Needs And The Gyro Columbus Deserves

Just outside of 270 on the east side, you can find an unassuming strip mall of several shops. At one end you can find a Starbucks and at the other end, you can find one of the best gyros in Columbus.

When I walked into Sababa I was greeted with a smile by the woman at the counter as she finished with another customer. I used this time to check out the menu and come up with my plan of action.

I was at a Mediterranean place, so naturally, whatever I ordered I was going to make sure included hummus. I decided on the gyro. (Which, by the way, is pronounced like this.)

The ordering process was very much like Chipotle’s. A piece of pita bread as my base, gyro meat, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and, of course, I had to get my hummus fix. I decided to splurge and get the kalamata olives, because why not? Oh, and I got baklava. You should, too.

The gyro was a big as my head and it was delicious. The meat was tender and the flavor was bursting with every bite. The veggies were fresh and crisp. The hummus and olives were a great call and I did not regret the olive’s slight upcharge one bit. The baklava—the sweet, sweet baklava—melted in my mouth.
