That is the traditional way it is supposed to be done
I wonder how many do it that way any more
That was the only place I have ever seen it done that way, and it has been the only place I have eaten gyros at since my first visit there. the quality, flavor and texture was so far above and beyond what I knew as gyros, it spoiled me and I would eat nothing less after that.
I was down in that area of Chicago 3 years back on business, and I could not wait to get there to have some more of their excellent gyros, and introduce my friends to the place, It was gone!! they were no longer in that location. the new occupants were serving hot-dogs and hamburgers. Typing about those gyros has got me hungry for them now!! Arrgh!!
The only commercial gyro suppliers in the USA, that I can remember currently are "Kronos" & "Grecian Delight" I think they are both located in Chicago Illinois, USA
Does anyone have a recipe for seasoning gyros meat (Shwarma??) I would be willing to make a small cone of the stuff at home and engorge myself in it if I knew I could get the flavors correct.
In the past few years, I have seen some various restaurants offering gyros on their menu, but I did not see the vertical rotisserie anywhere. It turns out some companies are selling pre-formed gyro-meat slices that these place toss on a griddle and place them in some stale pita bread with a nasty cucumber sauce on the side.
