Small, local spot. Really tasty gyros. Convenient for travelers too - it's on a main drag and not too far off I-55. Convenient to many of the hotels. Reasonably priced. Don't judge a book by it's cover. It's not fancy - but it's certainly worth stopping in.

Really great food. I've liked everything I've gotten here. My favorite is the Greek fries. Plus the owner is an awesome guy.

After reading review's about Yannis I finally got the change to try it and they are the best value and best gyros I have in in Springfield, a gyro and a gyro with extra meat and an order of Greek fries is under $20 and the amount of food they give is more than enough for a meal that leaves...

Fast food is not my specialty area of expertise. However, once is a while the craving for a gyro sandwich takes control, and this is the place in Springfield to satisfy that craving. I rate it as excellent for what it is, not in comparison to fine dining. The food is fresh, the sauce is "just right spicy", and the... More

I have eaten in this restaurant many times for many years. All of the food is prepared fresh and done to perfection.

Family business that has excellent gyros and greek fries. We prefer to take out because the seating is not comfortable and there's not much atmosphere. Great place for Greek food in Springfield. Be forewarned that they are not open on Sundays. Good for them taking family time!

If you want a great gyro every time, stop looking - you have found the place. Small family style business with focus on great food and keeping things local. Good prices and better food.

Saved us from eating at any of the chain fast foods. Just was there 30 min ago on 3/25 right before they closed. Their gyros and fries were one of the best we've had in a long time and we go to Greek town in Chicago. I had a veggie pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, kalamata olives, most awesome tzatziki...

Yanni's has the best Gyros in Springfield. The place is small and not at all fancy but the food is top notch. The sauce makes them fabulous! I've also had Gyros in Chicago (as another reviewer mentioned) and these are WAY better than any I've had there.

I grew up in Chicago and now work in Chicago. Yannis pales in comparison not only to the great gyros places in Chicago, e.g., Central Gyros, but also to average ones. The greek fries were also disappointing--the lemon juice came out of a bottle.
