Opaa Gyros Kit Review

Opaa Brand Gyros ReviewA few weeks ago, I reviewed the home gyros package from Chicago manufacturer Devanco; today I checked out a competing brand, Opaa! from another Chicago company called Grecian Delight.

Opaa is priced about 30 % less than Devanco, but the contents reflect that as well.  Both kits have claims on the box of the contents making six sandwiches.   The difference is Opaa contains a third less meat, fifty percent less sauce and pitas (3 split instead of 6 whole).

I don’t recall looking at the meat content on the Devanco box;  usually this stuff is beef and lamb with seasonings, and while the Opaa box states those ingredients, the lamb is waaaaaaaaaaaaay down the list, so – maybe – less than two percent by weight.

But what matters is taste, right?  I called the Devanco “just like you get in a gyro shop,” and I stick to that claim.

The Opaa?  I like it.  Good value.  Meat might be a little spicier than Devanco, but the sauce is tamer.  It’s all gonna come down to you deciding do you want a full size folded over gyro, or a half size split?

If the latter, then the Devanco kit will make 12, and becomes a better value.

Oh, where are they made?  According to the USDA stamp, in Elk Grove Village, IL, about a mile west of the O’hare runway (pic below).

At the bottom of the page is a YouTube video I found of a couple of guys demonstrating assembly of this product.
