Greek gyros pita anyone?

I am kinda pissed off when I see the “Greek Gyros” signs on some restaurants and holes-in-the-wall here in the Bay Area because these are NOT the real greek gyros wraps. Instead of having pork, fries, tomato, authentic tzatziki and big onions in the wrap, they have some weird-looking processed lamb slices and in some cases they have some green salad in them. This is NOT the real GREEK gyros pita/wrap. This is the TURKISH one.

The ONLY place I found authentic Greek Gyros in USA so far, was in Salt Lake City, in Utah. David (owner of OSNews) drove us to a restaurant he knew when we were there visiting him 2 years ago, and indeed, that was the real thing. It was excellent, just like the real thing in Greece.
