GO TO PIZZA MARKET, CHECKMATE, OR SANTORO'S!.
February, 2007: I have been eating gyro sandwiches for 23 years now. I have never been "presented" with a gyro like this before. Thank gawd. Souvlaki's "Gyro Platter" is a disgrace. For $7 (plus tax & tip) you get, according to their menu, a gyro sandwich, fries, and a salad.
When the lukewarm food arrived at my office an hour after the order was placed (plus the 10 minutes they kept my coworker on hold), here's what I got in my styrofoam boxes:
Half a pita (two quarters of a pita, really)
A little container of some exceptionally weak tzadziki sauce (not-quite-pulverized cucumbers and... something... white)
A bunch of lamb pieces loosely wrapped in foil. Apparently this is buffet-style gyro?
There WERE no tomatoes, onions, or lettuce to put on the build-your-own gyro.
Unless, of course, you take the vegetables out of the "salad." After which, your salad consists of two slices of cucumber, a mediocre-sized slice of feta cheese, a couple pieces of green pepper, and a bunch of mostly-white lettuce. Oh yeah, plus the nearly un-spiced vinegar-and-(mostly)oil for "dressing." By then, I just closed that box and dropped it in the trash. No salt for the cold fries, but enough ketchup packets to lubricate the driveshaft of a '58 Packard.
Next time we'll call Pizza Market (East Side Plaza, Hanover Street), Checkmate Pizza (The Chateau, Hanover Street), or Santoro's (couple of locations).
