Wraps (1220 E Northside Dr, Jackson) is a small, cozy, extremely friendly Greek place and is very much my new gyro go-to spot.


I ordered the tilapia gyro, above. It was delicious, and different from a typical gyro in ways other than the type of meat. The batter was flavorful and added a nice texture, making up for the softness of the fish itself. The tzatziki seemed fresher and thicker than many I’ve had and the whole thing was just a bit sweeter and richer than most gyros.


As good as the fish gyro was, it had to vie for my affections with these amazing crispy, freshly fried fries. Luckily there is room in my heart and stomach for both, because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to decide between the two if I had to.


This was our dessert, kataif–kind of a shredded wheat version of baklava, soaked in a super sweet orange blossom sauce.

My coworkers got a greek salad, a traditional gyro, and a shrimp gyro. I didn’t try them, but they looked good and were devoured enthusiastically. The traditional gyro was deemed better than Kiefer’s. I’ll have to determine that for myself on my next trip to Wraps (which will be soon), or possibly on the trip after next if I can’t resist the fresh-from-the-gulf shrimp gyro next time. We’ll see.

Update: I should have mentioned that Wraps has another location: in Byram, at 5752 Terry Rd.  In fact, my first trip to Wraps was inspired by an eavesdropped conversation about how amazing the fries at the Byram location were.
