West Colfax is a very different story from the Greek-heavy East Colfax. Revitalization efforts along the stretch that cuts through Lakewood have added fast-casual joints and modern strip-mall facades. This is where you'll find Yianni's Gyros Place, a simple short-order joint opened in 2010 to serve Greek favorites to locals weary of the cross-town drive. You'll find the usual Greek suspects: souvlaki, gyros, and falafal, plus burgers and plenty of American-style hot sandwiches and diner standards. Don't miss the gyro melt, the ultimate mashup of Greek, diner, and American cuisine.
