Gyro lover BearCity has settled on a favorite: Panos Char Broiler, a drab dive in the Valley. A huge amount of well-seasoned beef and lamb with some fresh tomatoes, slathered in cucumber-yogurt tzatziki and wrapped in a grill-toasted pita, explodes with flavor. You can get it to go, but it’s more practical to stay and eat at a table because of the delicious drippage.
Gyros are $5.25. They also make a mean char-broiled burger.
