Let’s Do Lunch: King of Kings Gyros & The Cheesesteak Factory

Two Local Restaurants Are Now Under One Roof

After a decade on Public Square, King of Kings Gyros has moved to a new, bigger location on East Market Street in Wilkes-Barre. Co-owners Jason and Eric Negron have combined the gyro shop with their other restaurant, The Cheesesteak Factory.

The new location is a favorite for lunch breaks and late-night snacks. They have a fiercely loyal fan base—just take look at the wall of Post-It notes that they salvaged from the old shop. Hundreds of customers have left messages over the years, like “Best gyros in the Valley!” and “I met my wife here” and our personal favorite, “When the zombie apocalypse happens, I will protect this place.”

You might as well go all-out and order the Ultimate Gyro. It’s one of their famous gyros with hot and sweet sauce and feta cheese. Or try one of their Philly Premium Cheesesteaks made with a half-pound of ribeye steak on a soft Amoroso roll. You can get it with or without onions and with your choice of American, provolone or Whiz.

The whole “gyro versus cheesesteak” thing makes it a tough choice. For the best of both worlds, order the Twinning Cheesesteak. It’s made with half ribeye and half gyro meat.

King of Kings Gyros & The Cheesesteak Factory are located at 17 East Market Street. They currently offer takeout, or you can order through DoorDash. They’re hoping to open up a new dining room in the coming months.
