With a name like Spyro’s you might think this restaurant would serve all Greek food, but actually, Spyro is the first name of the owner, and the food is nearly all American.
You’ll find an occasional reference to Greek fare with the Olympic Frittata -- Gyro meat, Feta cheese, tomato, onions and peppers. But the extensive menu listing focuses primarily on food most Americans are familiar with such as Chicken Salad Melt and Double Cheeseburger.
You definitely won't be disappointed at Spyro’s. If you want a great meal at reasonable prices, this is the place to come. All of the food at Spyro’s is prepared well, served quickly and piping hot. And you could order an entire meal here for under $10.00.
Here are some of my family’s faves:
Monte Cristo (shaved ham and Swiss cheese grilled on Texas French toast) $6.25.
Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken served over greens with pecan & honey mustard dressing. $7.25.
We mostly eat the breakfast entrees, no matter time of day. Those are usually omelettes and fresh squeezed OJ (small $1.95).
Although we rarely order dessert at any restaurant, that will change on the next visit to Spyro’s as somehow I have missed spying this delicacy on the menu – Angel Food Cake French Toast -- three wedges of angel food cake dipped in egg batter and grilled, $5.75.
Better yet, you can get Angel Food Cake French Toast topped with a Spyro’s Griddle Topper for an additional $2.85. Choose from Bananas Foster (fresh sliced bananas, caramel sauce); Turtle (milk chocolate, caramel, pecans); Baklava (pecans, honey, cinnamon). There are more Griddle Toppers but I’m getting too hungry to list them all!
The restaurant’s website is handy with a complete menu and page that lists each day’s specials. On the day I’m writing this the special is Avocado BLT Wheat Wraps and Southwest Chicken Salads. Soup of the day: Beef Barley.
There are two Spyro’s locations in Fort Wayne:
4410 Bluffton Road
6455 W Jefferson Blvd.
Rejoice because both locations are open every day.
Mon- Saturday 6am – 3pm
Sunday 7am – 3pm
