I'm not new to town, I've just never spoken up on this topic before.
I have a hell of a time finding a good gyro in town. I can't name you three places that cut it off the spit the way it's supposed to happen -- but there are plenty of places that will sell you a gyro filled with sliced meat they pulled from a fridge.
I hope this doesn't turn into a debate on why Greek people never settled in Los Angeles. Not everyone selling a good gyro in other cities is from Greece. Also, I'm not sure "authentic" or fine Greek cuisine is the point here.
Bonus points if anyone has leads in LA (downtown, Hollywood, southside or westside) rather than the farther outlying areas. Thanks in advance, I can sure use the insight.
