    Your Favorite Gyro is.....

    where?

    Mine used to be in a Greek little (very little) restaurant on 4th Ave & 86 street in Brooklyn. I havent been there in like 17 or 18 years (I'm now in Wayne, NJ)... and I don't even know if it's still there.

    I know I'm going to get a "what's a Gyro?" from some of you...

    A gyro is not Greek, it's Middle Eastern.

    There is no such thing as a "good Gyro" in Northern VA, best as I can tell.

    Closest would be a place called [URL="http://www.mobysonline.com/home.htm"]Moby Dick[/URL], which is solid, but is still "fast food" technically.

    I prefer pork or chicken souvlaki to gyro meat.

    Without question.... whenevr I visit NY, I go to [B]GYRO II, across from MSG.[/B]

    When I was younger, I would get one BEFORE a Ranger game and then AFTER the game.

    I send all my clients there when they visit NY. I tell them it's a bit of "Soup Nazi" in service but awesome food.

    I like the Gyros I get from the cart next to my building on 55th and madison.

    I'm sure there are better places but I like my street cart guy.

    Before I became vegetarian, the gyro platter at the carts on 53rd and 6th. :yes:

    It is phenominal...words cannot describe how good it is with the extra white and red sauce. Catch is, it's only open between 745pm and 4am, and there's always a long line. It's the best cure for the 3am post-bar/club drunchies...It's the only thing I still miss about being a carnivore.
