btw, if you've ever had one in greece, you'll never eat the american version again. it's been seventeen years for me and i can still taste it!
323 cals, 12.5g fat, 238mg sodium, 31.8g protein. grade B+
makes me yearn for Santorini :)
(edited to add that the sodium content is probably higher than this, as i didn't account for the seasoning on the meat)
Pita, not heated so oil was partially avoided and would only eat half, Chicken (asked them not to add additional oil on the grill, a little is good, but don't need a lot) lettuce, onion, cucumber, cube of feta, and tzatziki sauce (made with the 2% greek yogurt so around 60 cal and 4 fat for 2 oz serving, including other ingredients). Couldn't tell you how many calories total, could figure it out...but only eat there twice a year since I moved so I'd eat it regardless if I am ever over that way!
Looked up 4 sites: Great Steak, Greek odyssey cafe, great restaurants, and an adkins forum and based all on 3 oz (which is approximately 3 strips...usually put 6 on a sandwich where I go)
This is a range
200-298 calories and 21-27 grams of fat for the gyro meat only...
Bumping because I'd like to know as well. All I want to know is gyro meat calories by the ounce or grams.

Honestly i am craving this today! I wish i was in greece right now.

(edit: revised quote)
I sell Greek Food and use 1% organic yogurt in my Tzatziki Sauce to cut down on the fat content. I also have lowered the salt in my sauce to counter balance the salt in the Gyro Meat and add fresh produce. The only oil I ever use is Olive Oil and very sparingly so as to keep the fat content down. My goal in cooking is to offer a fresh and as healthy as possible, Greek Sandwich. The meat sold in Street Markets in the Middle East and Greece is kept whole, marinaded and cooked much like the Gyros Meat we get here..but is called Kebab. It is not the Kebab we know here in America (Shish Ke Bab).
So if i don't pack my lunch one day Kebab is a relatively healthy option compared to pizza or other things they have at school? (I am in Italy) Just curious cause I figured that the Kebab meat would be just as crappy here as it is in America but if you think it might be better in Europe I would consider it haha.
