Gyro loaf in Boston

Hi All,
A few weeks ago I went on an unsucessful quest to find a gyro "loaf" in Boston, and wondered if any of you could help. What I am looking for (or at least what I was able to get in Pittsburgh) is a rectangular piece of gyro, with dimensions roughly 7 by 15 inches or so (like if you took a few bricks and put them long side to long side together), rather than the big ones on a spit that most commercial places cook. I used to be able to get them frozen at a Greek grocery store. Anyone know where I can find one? They are one of the best dishes for an easy, big dinner gathering that I know, so would love a source of supply.

I checked the Armenian places here with no luck, and haven't found a good Greek grocery - though I suspect there must be one.

The other think that is keeping me from asking around for it is that I don't know how gyro is pronounced here. Yee-ro, jy-ro? I know that pronounciation varies by city, so if anyone local could key me in, that would also be great.

thanks so much,
