    Some restaurants make their own gyro meat from chicken, pork, beef maybe lamb. But they don't sell it retail/commercial as far as I know.

    Phonecia Bakery will sell you sliced gyro meat from their spit for $7/lb.

    Restaurant Depot carries many of the Kronos Gyrocones and precooked slices, pretty cheap, too. They also had a couple boxes of another brand (Windy City?) which I don't see listed in their database. These are their Kronos offerings (UPC, descrip, package price, case price).

    07758917094 GYRO TITAN COOKED THICK SLICE 4/5# $18.04 $65.69
    07758970045 KRONOS 1045 GYRO KONE BEEF/LAMB 2/20LB $83.46 $0.00
    07758917071 KRONOS 1071 COOKED GYRO SLICES BF/LAMB 5# $18.60 $64.28
    07758918111 KRONOS 1111 4/5LB CHICKEN GYRO SLICES $17.13 $63.82
    07758966035 KRONOS 661035 HALAL GYROKONE 4/10LB $78.87 $0.00
    07758966045 KRONOS 661045 GYROKONE HALAL 2/20LB $75.80 $0.00
    07758917460 KRONOS GYROKONE 2/20LB BF/LAMB 1460 $77.76 $0.00
    07758917450 KRONOS GYROKONE 4/10LB BF/LAMB 1450 $78.42 $0.00

    I'm so glad I didn't buy the 40lb gyrocones for my own personal use. I settled for the 5lb box. Don't buy the "Titan" (their budget line).

        Just as an informational addendum. I believe their gyro meat is pork.

          I was looking for restaurants offering higher quality gyro meat than the standard factory variety. Thanks for the info.
          Cheers

            It's pork or chicken (your choice). They don't have lamb or beef gyro meat. The chicken was rubbery and mild.
