LAMB GYRO FROM UNCLE GUSSY'S TRUCK
Gyros are a dime a dozen in NYC. For some of the best, you'd have to head out to Astoria for authentic Greek cuisine. But if you're in midtown and hankering for a good, cheap gyro, Uncle Gussy's truck parked at 345 Park Avenue will satisfy your needs. For 5 bucks (5 bucks? Unheard of in Manhattan!) you get a packed lamb gyro filled with salty tender meat sliced from a spit, grilled onions, lettuce and tomato. The meat isn't greasy like with some gyros and the pita will also hold steady if you need to eat on-the-go. The platters with rice are a buck more and a good value too.
