    Great! I didn’t use the bacon or onion with the ground lamb and was still very good! Yes, I will make this again next time I want gyros!

    Very very very good! In wake of the stay at home orders, I was craving a gyro! This recipe was simple to make. Mad that I forgot to buy feta cheese though, used pizza blend instead. Still great. Will Definitely make again.

    YUM!!! I live in Hawaii and there is 0 Mediterranean places. This was so good! Just couldn’t find a tzaziki sauce. I’ll just have to learn to make my own! Takes a few hours so plan ahead but well worth it!

    Really enjoyed this recipe for Gyros. I used dried oregano and I will use fresh next time bc I found the oregano to be a little strong.

    Ok - flavour was good but not quite the texture of say a donner kebab

    I've made this several's as close to "carved from the spit" as you can make...really delicious!! I have even doubled the recipe, cooked, sliced and froze for a quick weeknight meal. For a low carb meal, skip the pita and put all the ingredients in a salad with a tzatziki dressing!

    i was craving gyros for so long, ordering them from different restaurants would always be disappointing. Found this recipe and it is exactly what i want it to be. i've made it many times.

    This was great! I used the convect roast setting making it crusty on the outside and juicy on the inside.
