About Gyros Planet & Taqueria

Pablo Sanchez and Erika Castro bought the restaurant, formerly known as Gyros Planet, in March 2019 and rebranded the restaurant as Gyros Planet and Taqueria. The couple has spent the last year passing out flyers and raising awareness of the new ownership. Erika has a passion for feeding the community because of her personal experience. “I lost my father when I was 12, and it was a really hard time. I saw my mom crying and crying because she didn’t have money to buy food. I had to sell my toys and everything I had and go door to door and ask for food. I don’t want those kids to feel the same way that I did.”
