    This was okay, I thought the meat could use more flavor. If I made again I would use more seasoning and chop up the turkey instead of shaping it like a patty - 6/19/07

    Delicious! I love a good gyro, and this was a satisfying alternative. I used OPA feta dill Greek yogurt dressing instead of making the sauce. I didn't have any parsley and I love cumin, so I used a full teaspoon and it was yummy. Kangaroo Pita Pockets are perfect for this. - 7/28/14

    I really like this, my daughter didn't care for the sauce, and my husband a picky eater ate it all. - 10/14/11

    I really didn't enjoy this recipe. I would say too much lemon juice in the sauce & the turkey could definitely use more seasoning. - 4/18/11

    we LOVEd this!!! taking into account all the reviews here, my variation was to sub in onion salt for onion powder. I made this more like a gyro, cutting the thin patties into all different size strips. Thanks for this one, I've been meaning to make it for awhile!!! - 4/16/10
