Any good cheap souvlaki in SF proper?

OliverB | Apr 15, 2014 08:15 PM

Ex-Montreal native homesick for Greek food in the Bay Area...

I've not found a passable gyro/souvlaki joint in San Francisco since moving here. Is there just not a large Greek community in the city?

The ubiquitous San Francisco souvlaki is something like disgusting cafeteria style mystery meat, cheap iceberg lettuce and bottled ranch dressing on a stale pita folded over like a taco. Unacceptable!

Is there any hope for a real souvlaki/gyro pita in this city or will this pervasive lunch staple found on every corner back home be something to savor only on return visits East from now on?
