Arby’s Gyros Are A Disappointment, Probably My Own Fault For Not Paying Attention

My family loves gyros. We’ve driven past the Arby’s sign in West Duluth and seen the 2 gyros for $6 offer on the sign and thought we’d finally give it a try.

Pallets as high as the eye can see filled with product; freezers, refrigerators as big as whole rooms and bags of carrots and fresh produce that are incredibly huge.
