Gyro, which means “turn” in Greek, is pork or chicken cooked on a rotating spit, like tacos al pastor. It also refers to the dish made with that meat: a sandwich of pita bread that contains garlicky tatziki sauce, chopped tomatoes, and onions. Gyros are a Greek-restaurant item, especially popular as street food in Chicago, where French fries are their usual companion. Gyro meat itself frequently is used in lieu of the expected protein in tacos, on pizza, even in breakfast sandwiches.
