It is placed in a round pitta with tzatziki, tomatoes, onions and fries. Gyros is obtained from the Greek word Yireezo meaning turn around referring to the constantly rotating vertical spit on which the meat is cooked. The correct pronunciation is Yeeros
It is believed that Gyros originated during the time of Alexander the Great when his soldiers skewered the meat on their swords and cooked it over a fire.
In Greek culture, the practice of cooking food on spits or skewers historically dates back to the Bronze Age. Souvlaki was a popular delicacy in Santorini back in 2000 BC. Souvlaki is small pieces of meat on wooden skewers marinated in mountain herbs, mustard, spices, olive oil and Greek yoghurt
