What I got was thin strips of roasted, whole muscle meat (similar to what you'd get in a fajita here), tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and takziki sauce on the side, all on a plate. No pita to be found. Later I was told that you get the pita type from the food cart stands, in restaurants you get it without the pita.
So anyway, my experience with Greek gyros is it's whole muscle meat. I did not get to see how they roasted it, but I'm guessing on a spit.
Sort of like this....
Pita is on the side....
