Quiznos has brought back their Classic Gyro options to their menu for a limited time. The core of the gyro sandwiches have seasoned, slow-roasted beef and lamb and you can get it in either a classic sammie or classic sub.
When we were ordering this, we kept switching from “jai-ro” and”gee-ro” since we really have no idea how to actually pronounce it.
Quiznos found in a recent national, Twitter-based poll of 3,471 Canadians that the most popular pronunciation of Gyro is “jai-ro,” as indicated by 48 per cent of respondents. “Yeer-oh” ranked second in the poll at 25 per cent, while 17 per cent say “gee-ro” and nine per cent use “hee-ro.”
Gyro Flatbread Sammie
This starts with seasoned beef & lamb gyro, crumbled feta, banana peppers, crisp lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and topped with tzatziki sauce. You can get one at $3.99 or two for $7.
Gyro Sub Sandwich
The ingredients in the gyro sub are the same but you can choose which bread you want it on as well as 6″ ($6.99), 9″ ($8.49), or 12″ ($9.99) sub.
No matter which way you have it, the beef & lamb gyro work well with the tzatziki sauce and red onions. If you are not a fan of banana peppers, you can customize these too. Perhaps swapping them with cucumbers.
