"Gyros are pretty common in my home state of PA. We don't see them (or many of the other foods we love) in this part of TX. We were craving a taste of home (how appropriate lol) These were really good and hit the spot!"
"Delicious! This has been a family favorite for years! I recall my mom marinating, and my dad grilling this over the summers! It is also GREAT for entertaining :)Definitely a must try!"
"We used a flank steak sliced thin before marinating and grilled over hardwood coals. I think we will do a skirt steak with it tomorrow."
"We use venison in place of beef and really like this recipe. Makes more cucumber sauce than needed so I usually half"
