Gyro meat is typically a combination of lamb and beef that is seasoned then roasted on a spit for hours. It is then shaved off to build the pita sandwich.

Wrapped up with lettuce, tomato, onion and topped with cucumber and dill based tzatziki sauce, the gyro offers everything a burger or taco does, oftentimes for a lower price.

Local gyro and Halal restaurants, along with diners, sell a gyro sandwich lunch for as low as $6.99, including fries and a drink.
