I could understand that.  I've come to the decision that I will never order a gyro from anything but a Greek restaurant.  We have a Greek takeout place in town and the gyro I had there was to die for delicious.   Another place on our side of town opened and they serve a variety of cuisines, Chinese, American subs, and some Greek food.  I ordered their gyro and just...blech.  The meat was bland, they had celery sauce and it was so runny that I ended up throwing it away after a few bites. 

So I've learned it's truly better to just trust a nation's cuisine to a restaurant that specializes in that cuisine.

We have a fantastic Greek restaurant near my workplace, but none near my home. Same with Chinese, but we do have one good Japanese restaurant near home.

Thing is, I crave Greek and Chinese food when at home, and Japanese food when I am at work.  ::)

For a long time I found myself craving Chik-Fil-A on Sundays...and only on Sundays, the one day they're always closed.  I did end up trying it and well, my cravings ended.  I just wasn't real impressed and figured I was getting my cravings on Sundays for a reason. LOL

I go to Chik-Fil-a once in awhile for the cheesecake. It's good, and I make a point not to share it.  ;D

Well I've never eaten at a Turkish place but I wouldn't write them off as far as gyro's go.  Though I'd expect them to be a bit different but still plenty tasty.

I really like their chicken, egg, and cheese bagel for breakfast. Mmmm. They're also one of the few fast food places that are pretty safe to go on a diet. The fruit cup sides are awesome, and they have a couple of grilled chicken options that are pretty good.

I'll admit, though, I started eating their solely because of their advertising. (The cows) I love it so much, I thought I'd better support them so they'd stick around. :)

No meals are more than 600 calories, so it is a good choice. Also, I am a brewed unsweetened iced tea fanatic, and that is one of the safe places I can always trust. I love the coleslaw, nuggets, and Chicken minis.
