WOW - that is one big promo.
 
we've had a few threads w/photographed food. some folks don't think it looks very, uh, appetizing :) but 'free' counts for alot.
and piehead always sends good food photos when she travels.

I love gyros but Sub Tender isn't on the list and they get my Gyros business.

Tzatziki sauce can make/break a gyros, what's theirs like? IMO, don't like the supermayo ones.

thick and delicious (not runny like Pete's or Mickey's). I love to put it on my fries too not very healthy but oh so good.

Pete's is runny?   I always went to King & Queens on Roosevelt, but now just Pete's and Poor Boy on 1st & Roosevelt.

I will have to try Sub Tender.

Make sure to get the BeeGee fries. Just also make sure you don't have any social engagements. You'll be oozing for a day or two.

I like a bold Tzatziki...some are too rather mild, probably the supermayo you're describing?

(K&Q had my fav before)

It was the time I tried one there. Didn't care for the texture at all. I like mine to have the consistency of a "dip". Perhaps I'm the odd one here. But that's okay.

Poor Boy's has very good food. Like the Greek salad with grilled chicken, tuna sand. They also make a delicious Philly steak but it's iffy, depending on the quality of the meat.

+1!

Surprisingly good.  Different than the usual Philly, better contained within the sammich. 
You're right on about the meat, but when they're on they're on!


@pie - re: consistency - me too.  I like it thick myself (Shocked). 
I probably never noticed at Pete (Ridgeland/Roosevelt) cuz I'm often too ravenous and swallow it whole.  LOL

Pete's, too mayo-e, K's&Q's was good, never had Poor's.  It's funny, was just remembering the days when I actually cooked 3 meals a day:))

Pete's and Pete's II are related, right?

Your pix of the K&Q's sauce looks like the same consistency of the Sub Tender's sauce. Now I have a taste for a gyro.

OK, I definitely have to try a Sub Tender gyro now!

Get a free one from Poor Boy tomorrow, and grab some tzatziki from Sub Tender just in case.   LOL  Wink

I heard about this last week via an email.

If it's anything like the KFC promotion, I want nothing to do with it.

Yeah, but they need access to a printer to get their coupon.

Oh great, one more thing they shouldn't be doing while driving.

I've seen people trying to drive and eat gyros. They get a wide berth.

o/t, but on topic for things we like that aren't always good for us:
 
famous liquors has a sign on their door - big tax hike starts tomorrow (sept 1). buy today!
big hit on hard liquor, more moderate for wine/beer.
they didn't say whose tax it is. hmm.

KFC wouldn't honor a lot of them.....they sent raincheck type coupons to people that went to the stores.

Was craving a gyro on the way home, stopped at Pete's (Ridgeland).

Gyro was fantastic, but the tzatziki was OK.  Not runny, but rather mayo-ey.

Sandwich is worth repeating, though.  Pig
