Sandwiches in Review: Pop’s (and Kronos) Gyro

August 31, 2010

Kronos Products, a supplier of gyros and gyro accessories in the Midwest, recently held a free gyro day to benefit the Fisher House Foundation.  Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of it ahead of time, or I would’ve informed you all.  Anyway, I swung by my local gyro joint, Pop’s Italian Beef, to pick one up.  I’d had Pop’s signature sandwich before, but I felt the time was right to review the gyro, since it’s a pretty standard sandwich.


The gyro is a traditional greek sandwich consisting of gyro meat (generally a mix of beef and lamb), tomatoes, onions, and tzatziki sauce, served on a pita.  The Pop’s gyro was delicious.  It was packed with meat, the tomatoes were fresh, and the pita was just the right temperature.  It was also quite large, big enough to be a meal by itself, without any sides.  A regular gyro usually runs around $5 at Pop’s, a great deal for a great sandwich.

P.S.  In the future, I will try to be more vigilant when searching for free sandwich deals.  If anyone finds any, be sure to post them in the comments section.
