Arby’s Becomes Largest Chain Ever to Launch Gyros


Arby’s attempts to stay relevant by adding two new gyros to their menu. The move will make the company the largest fast food chain to serve gyros. Although, seeing as the Arby’s version is stuffed with deli meat, we’re using the term “gyro” lightly.

The Roast Beef Gyro wraps a pita around sliced roast beef covered in tzatziki sauce and comes accompanied by lettuce, onions and tomatoes; the Turkey Gyro has similar accessories, but swaps the roast beef with roast turkey slices. The turkey also clocks in at 450 calories vs. the beef’s 520 calories.


The new items roll out nationwide on September 1st.


Craving: Gyros

I can’t remember the last gyro I ate, but I’m craving one right now! The greasier the better. The best part about this sandwich, is the ongoing debate on its pronunciation. Infact, even within the Foodbeast crew there is debate. Regardless of how it’s pronounced, I’m craving one right now. I’m craving the warm flat bread, the melt-in-your-mouth meat, the thin slices of tomato, the creamy cucumber sauce. (Thx NYSOM)
