Central FL area, great gyros?

hitachino | May 15, 2007 07:00 AM

i'm always in search of a delicious gyro. i don't like that limp, steamed pasty looking gyro meat either.....i want some nice thick slices that have been crisped up nicely along the edges. (either grilled or on that rotisserie thingy) and the tatzsiki sauce must be thick and delicious as well. a nice crispy yet soft pita makes things perfect.

so far, i've had pretty GOOD ones at:

mykonos mayeron in longwood
greek flame taverna in casselberry
andros on orange avenue (not sure if it's still there - haven't been in years - evidently it's gone, now it's a more upscale italian place called zabella)
and oddly enough, a dive sort of place off michigan called theo's kitchen - their tatziki sauce was the best of anyone's -- granted i haven't been in several years but used to eat there regularly when i worked in downtown orlando

NOT very good at: (these served those limp pasty things of which i spake)

athens cafe in altamonte
athenian garden cafe on orange avenue (near FL hospital)
cafe annie's downtown orlando (although their roast chicken was awesome)
athena roasted chicken in maitland

i've had hit/miss with taki's in eustis.

anyone have any good/bad gyro experiences or recs to share for central FL?
