Bairaktaris and Savvas in Monastiraki square, are good choices.

Theres a small pedestrian street ( known as 'souvlaki row' ) filled with gyros and souvlaki restaurants. You cant miss it!

Are you sure you've been looking for the right thing? "Gyros" isn't a "sandwich", it's a wrap: meat plus onions plus whatever else you order or the maker chucks in, sometimes tomato, sometimes yoghurt, all wrapped in a pita. See below. They are everywhere in Athens: gyros is THE Greek fast food. The two places Evan mentions, plus Thanassis, are all next to each other at Monastiraki, and they're all pretty good.

Just to help w/ the matter

This is a "pitta me gyro"

that's what you are looking for

A Gyros "sandwich" can only be found in Thessaloniki not in Athens.

(See: "A Tale of Two Souvlakis". Come to think of it, this may be where you got the gyro sandwich idea.)

Just north of the Attalos Hotel on Athinas St. on the corner where the Produce Market starts is a corner shop that has excellent Gyros (and other food) They are not as expensive as the ones on Monistiraki Sq. Can't remember the name but you go up to the counter and order and then take a seat at a table on the sidewalk.

Hey JadeVictoria:-) Asking for the 'best' gyro in Athens is like asking for the 'best' burger in NYC;-)) You've gotten some great recs.. I, for one, love Savvas and enjoy their chicken souvlaki since I don't eat red meat! Nonetheless, am sure there are wonderful local haunts all over Town where the locals have their faves.. and consider it the 'best';-) Have fun.. and enJOY!
