Stephanos Las VegasStephanos’ menu consists of area favorites such as their choice of gyros, the beef and lamb gyro wrap and the cheese gyro wrap.  Both wraps are served with hearty servings of beef and lamb cuts, the real deal carved off the spit cuts, not pre-packaged frozen slices. The gyros are served with plenty of sliced onions and tomatoes and genuine tzatziki sauce, made of strained yogurt (usually from sheep or goat milk) mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, and dill or mint or parsley and served cold, not the Americanized ranch dressing variation that some places serve.
