What I discovered was Paizi’s Gyros, an old favorite in a new place… an old favorite I usually enjoy only once a year. Usually in October.
No matter. When we pulled up there were easily half a dozen customers hanging around the trailer, some already consuming gyros wrapped in foil in both hands or picking bits of meat out with a fork.
The combination is pleasing… but I have to say, you can’t eat this daintily. Yes, you can grab a fork from the table at the end of the trailer, but then you miss out on the cacophony of flavors inside that pita. Nope, best way is to get both hands around it, squish it a bit and bite in. No need to be surprised when sauce and meat juice drips down your chin. None at all.
Anyway, Paizi’s won’t be there forever… they’ll be picking up some time in June for a summer of gypsy-like wandering. So if you’re in Fort Smith and want a gyro fix, they’ll fix you up. They have baklava, too.
You’ll currently find Paizi’s in the Toys-R-Us parking lot on Rogers Avenue. No phone number — it’s a trailer, after all — but there is a Facebook fan page.
