Out in RTP you’ll find a small cluster of restaurants and businesses off of TW Alexander that is probably a hot-spot for local office workers looking for lunch. At least, that’s the way it’s been for me! With favorites such as Jersey Mike’s, Sheetz, Spicy Green Gourmet and Pho 9n9, I often find myself here to grab a quick bite to re-fuel. One newer entry to the plaza is Gussy’s Place, a food truck gone bricks n mortar. Known for its Greek and Mediterranean fare, I finally worked myself away from Pho 9n9 to give it a whirl…
Out front, Gussy’s Place doesn’t look like much. Plain white signage, glazed windows hiding what lies inside Gussy’s! The dining room at Gussy’s is bright, light and fun with plenty of cafe type seating splayed about. A small line up front at the counter along with two display cases of goodies gives you a hint that the food is good here! It’s a small menu with plates, pitas and soups, I go with a gyro pita done Greek style (fries inside). I grab a number and self-serve my drink and head out to the sidewalk tables to enjoy a beautiful afternoon.
Service at Gussy’s Place is pretty quick, it takes 5 – 10 minutes for my pita sammich and it’s a tasty looking bite. Lots of gyro meat slathered with creamy tzatziki along with a bit of chopped tomato and onion. The fries used are skin-on and lightly seasoned, good stuff! I wolf the gyro pita down and it’s definitely above average and nicely done. Nice job, Gussy’s!
I drop my plate off inside and head out of Gussy’s happily satisfied. Apparently they are still doing their food truck in addition to this store-front and I can see why they are popular. Solid Greek eats served with a smile works pretty well for me. While I’ll need to dig in a bit deeper on the menu, I was pleased with my pita and hope to get back soon…
