They recommend calling ahead so a staff member can deliver your meal curbside: 407-794-1700.First responders and medical staff just have to show their ID and license. Those out of work are on the honor system, but are still asked to show ID to verify they live in Clermont or Winter Garden.The Great Greek gyro comes with beef and lamb, or grilled chicken, and lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki sauce and feta cheese.A restaurant can't just give away free food to anyone and everyone and not expect to go broke, so there's no shade to the Great Greek for limiting their offer to Clermont and Winter Garden residents only. After all, by including "anyone out of work or furloughed due to the COVID-19 crisis" in the food giveaway, they've already upped the giveaway game.The Great Greek is a small chain of 11 restaurants, three of which are locally owned in Florida. The other locations are in Palm Beach Gardens and Port St Lucie, meaning Orlando residents may not have run across the place yet, but it's recommended for fans of Olea Mediterranean Grill who are in western Orange and Lake County.
