A Warning About the Chicken Gyro at Chicago Gyros

Don't get the chicken gyro at Chicago Gyros (in Clifton).

The regular gyro is fine, and its deliciousness has been lauded by many, including me.

But I took home a chicken gyro a few weeks ago and it was awful. The chicken was tough, stringy, and tasteless. And it wasn't gyro style meat. There were only a few pieces (mercifully) of tough, stringy, tasteless chicken lightly seasoned and cooked on the grill. The meat must have come from a 100-yr old bird. I took 4 or 5 bites and into the garbage it went. Totally unacceptable.

Was this an anomaly? Does anyone else have a chicken gyro experience to report?
