George's Gyros Spot
Inducted on 25th May 2016

Twenty years ago, Louis and Anastasia Pallas and their teenage son, Paul bought a four year old little hot dog and gyros stand in northwest Indiana. Although Paul wasn’t initially very excited about the business, nor plodding through college; he soon came around and graduated with a finance degree and was enthusiastically eager to help run, shape and grow this family business. Ten years later, with business doing quite well, they decided to tear down ‘the little yellow barn’ called The Original Georges Gyros Spot and build a place four times the size with a dining room that seats more than one hundred. Their enthusiasm to expand was based on the fact that since the very beginning, George’s has created a great high quality reputation serving three generations of customers; many of whom have become friends as well as patrons.


The local Post Tribune has awarded George’s with best area hot dog honors among their many other local accolades and awards. The Pallas family supports numerous little leagues and other local sports; have hosted pancake breakfasts for charities; and also sponsors YMCA and local theatre events. They are also active in the Chesterton area Lions Club and Chamber of Commerce.

The Pallas’ have always provided great food with premium products. Now it’s Vienna Beef’s turn to acknowledge and thank Louis, Anastasia and Paul, and welcome The Original George’s Gyros Spot into the Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame. From all of us at Vienna, we send congratulations and best wishes for much continued success.
