Ah don't remember him then, although there was a van that would usually sit around Niederwerrn that sold pretty good Gyros, he'd show up at area Mike on occasion as well.


Yeah I remember the Truckstop.

I was on Conn from 95-02 with 1/15INF (3ID) and then 1/18INF (1ID).

When were you there?

Doenars are the Turkish version pretty close to the same thing but not tell a Greek or Turk that!

I moved to Georgia and the Gyros suck ass. Some places automatically put on feta. You have to tell them to not put it on.
They also pronounce Gyro I guess the "Greek" way (year- row). Instead of cucumber dressing, they also try and pronounce it tzatziki (Ta- zeek- ee).

So how do you all pronouce Gyro, do you get feta cheese on it, and do you call it cumumber or tzatziki?

Most importantly where were you born and raised?
Born in Northside hospital, raised in Georgia. We called em sammiches until all the yankees started correcting us, lmao. Now we call em heros, gee-ros, jeye-ros, guy-ros, and everyother butchering of the original pronunciation imaginable. I would not bank on a good one outside of the perimeter, and would be careful inside where I got one.

Whereabouts in Ga are ya? The vernaculars throughout the state change pretty drastically, from the drawn out 'yyyyy'aaaaaaaaalllllllllllls' of south Georgia to the sharp 'weeee-dawgies' of appalachian georgia and the 'southern rise' in the speach of east Ga (old southern dialect). Inside the perimeter (I-285) is really wierd, because nobody there is a Ga native, but plenty talk like they are, which sounds really funny (to me). FYI - if they say 'George-e-ah' or 'AT-lan-Ta', they are not native. If they say 'Jaw-jah' or 'Add-lanna', they are. We tend to get lazy midsentence.

Chrispy I grew up in the Detroit area and called them slovlakis.. onion, tomato, tzatziki sauce, no feta, yum.
I now serve them in my restaurant.
Not bad for a Polish kid!

SmugglersBlues I always thought it was just pronounced "Grinda", as long as it's "wicked good", who cares how it's pronounced.

jp2611 Midwest here...and hope this doesn't offend.."Hero" (yeah we really screwed that one up) but I do like to get them when the fairs are around town......

ed98208 I say year-oh. With tzat-zeeky (maybe I shouldn't put that second "t" in there?). I have no feelings about having feta on it, I can take it or leave it. As for born and raised I was Navy brat so we moved around a lot when I was a kid, but have lived in WA since I was 8.

Allentown area. This may explain it. I grew up close to there and I pronounce it the "americanized" way.
