A new place for you to get gyros and burgers has officially opened its doors in Bettendorf.

We told you earlier this summer about L&B Gyros. This week they have opened up their doors in the location that used to be Freshii, over by Twin Span Brewing. They're the newest restaurant that's by the BettPlex.

L&B Gyros offers a variety of burgers, hot dogs, and of course gyros. They opened up on Monday selling their gyros, the delicious creations of Greek origin that typically have meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like such:

You don't have to get the gyro meat in pita bread either, you can get it on a salad. You may notice L&B Gyros has a pretty simple menu. That's because they "believe that perfecting a handful of great items is better than a variety of sub-par dishes", according to their Facebook post.

Here's what you'll find on their menu:


  • Mondays: closed
  • Tuesdays: 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
  • Wednesdays: 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays: 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
  • Fridays: 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays: 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.
  • Sundays: 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

Where They Are

You'll find L&B Gyros at 5009 Competition Drive in the BettPlex.

They're in the former Freshii, which closed back in January after being in business for a little over two years.

Even though the dish has been said and ordered a dozen different ways, "gyro" is pronounced 'yee-ro'. Not 'worbste' like Jimmy & Luke came up with:
