    This thread came back? The gyro place I posted about closed, but Arby's beef gyros aren't bad at all.

    Eight friggin' pages of gyro talk and I never commented. How the hell did that happen?

    We have one hole- in- the wall place I haven't tried (reviews not great) and a sit down place I just haven't gone to because I prefer to think of it as street food. I make some really good versions at home, but never in quantities warranting the use of a vertical rotisserie (although it is on my bucket list).

    Pita Cafe in Hoover, AL. Small shop run by nice mid eastern family. Been around for a while. Best Hummus ever tasted as well.

    I saw a couple of people mention Parthenon Gyros on State Street in Madison. I haven't been there in at least 10 years, but I do love their gyros and have found no others that are as good. There is a place in Appleton, 20 miles from where I live, that comes close...Josef's Gyros and Kabobs. In Oshkosh, though, the choices are few, and frankly, not very good.

    We've got a pretty significant Greek population in our area and there are quite a few family-owned restaurants around. So, yeah, I can go to several spots and get a REAL gyro.

    And now I'm hungry, even though I just ate lunch (that did not include a gyro)....

    Well, I can't see the spit at Gus's Diner, but it doesn't matter. He's the guy who owns the gas station on 113.

    Atlantis Taverna in Sun Prairie has good food, but the gyros aren't as good ad Gus's.

    And blowtorch, while I understand your pain at the builders in your backyard, over by my place, both onramps to 151 are closed, a house is being build down the street (so there's vehicles on both sides), and fiber is getting put in. My work drive is up about 15 minutes.

    If you think a roasted amputated leg is gross, I'm curious what you think other meat is made of? ;)

    Yes, I have my spot here in Denver, I had my spot(s) in Boulder during college, and I had my spot(s) growing up in Fort Collins. They are just too good to not have around!

    I haven't found any place to write home about here in Quebec City, but when I lived in Wake Forest, NC there was a place called Charlie's Kabob Grill...Just killer man.

    60 miles (Columbia, MO) away for me. Worth the trip. We generally only go to Columbia after we have compiled a shopping list of things we can't get locally. The list is mostly just an excuse to go for the Gyros though.;)
