I feel slightly guilty writing this, because Nick's Jr. is so close to this restaurant, but I don't feel guilty enough to stop. Here's what you need to do if you don't have plans this weekend.
1. Go to Gyro Shack
2. Buy seriously anything, but make sure to get the Baklava.
4. Drive the 7 minutes to Howarth Park.
5. Grub down!
Seriously friends, that's only 5 steps. You can even do them in your pajamas. Really, it's South Everett, you can wear whatever you want. I lost one of my sandals in quicksand at this beach, and then did the walk of shame back to my car. Did it hurt? Yes. Was I embarrassed? No. I was still one of the best dressed folks there, and let's faced it, I am many things, but polished is not one of them.
Anyway, Gyro Shack made it to Everett in early May this year, so you may have missed it. It was so popular in Idaho, that they expanded to our beautiful city. Gyro Shack makes me a bit sad, because my fave, Nick's Jr. also has gyros. However, I go to Nick's for their awesome burgers. So I'm not really worried for them... Gyro Shack has a Philly Cheese-steak Gyro, and you can get hummus and veggies on the side. My daughter swears their lemonade is the best ever. I reiterate, if you don't have plans this weekend, follow my 5 simple steps.
I'm a not-for-profit worker that loves food, both healthy and indulgent. I've eaten the 12 egg omelette at Beth's Cafe: toast, hash browns, and all. Take that Adam Richman!
