Gyros ... with goat?

So I'm riding up in the elevator a few weeks back clutching my gyros from Oasis Grill down on Drumm Street, and a guy asks where I got it, then sniffs dismissively, and proceeds to tell me there's this great gyros place "across from the Bank America building" that serves real gyros, made with goat, not lamb, and you haven't tasted gyros 'til you've tasted that. Baladie? I ask (which uses lamb, not goat). No, another place he says, and proceeds to describe the rotisserie they use (which sounds just like the ones they use for lamb and chicken at Oasis and tons of other places around town)

I only half believe that he knows what he's talking about, but I'm intrigued, so I check out the little market on Pine across from the BA building just below Kearney thinking thats it, but no, just lamb (warmed in a steamer no less), so that's not it. I'm still not sure the random stranger knew what he was talking about, but I'm still intrigued and sorta on a mission now, so, on the off chance the elevator tip was legit ...

anyone know of a place in SF that serves "real" gyros, made with goat?
