I am not sure what a spindle is, but I love a really good gyro.
You know, the spindle is the vertical metal rod that gyro meat is on. There are gas burners so that the meat gets browned before they shave it off.

This idiot is slicing tasteless gray meat into 3/16" thick oval slabs and calling it a day.

The fair here has a gyro booth that is set up in town when there is no fair. Same procedure. I asked them the same basic question. "Wouldn't it be better if you had an actual gyro setup instead of a deli-slicer, cheap meat and a steam table?" Same answer, "it's the same thing". I told him he had obviously never had a decent gyro.

I love gyros too. That's why it pisses me off.

oh! yeah those are the best ones for sure. Damn, there is one not far at all from me and that is sounding so good. I haven't had a real sandwich in well over a year. It is weird to think about how much money I used to spend eating out.

If they can’t pronounce it properly they’re probably not going to make it properly.

The “G” should be silent and the spindle visible. Agree 100%.

I always feel like a sellout when I try to pronounce it. I always think about news people saying latin words all spicy and embarrass myself. So I stick with 'Hero' generally.

Oh god, now I'm remembering my childhood.

There is/was a place in the next town that had a place that the old (Im guessing Greek) couple just made gyros and fries. Now that I am doing the mental math, I am guessing they are no longer there.

Shit load of harissa, zaatar, naan, kalamatas, fresh madeleines, a decent baguette and some gorganzola.

The best thing about western civilization is our ability to recognize good shit and borrow it.
