Arby’s Traditional Greek Gyro is an amazing piece of fast-food goodness that only those who have tried it can attest.

A Greek Gyro at Arby’s contains 710 calories. But you can make it less calorie-dense by making a few simple modifications (more on that below).

Traditional Greek Gyros at Arby’s are made with Arby’s own Gyro Meat. The chain’s Gyro meat is basically a blend of lamb and beef with spices and a few other ingredients.

To tell you the truth, they’re just as good as the ones sold in Athens and Rue de la Huchette in Paris. Although not exactly the same, the creamy Tzatziki Sauce and Greek seasoning gives it that delicious Mediterranean flavor.

Arby’s Gyro features Gyro Meat, Tzatziki Sauce, Greek Seasoning, sliced red onions, tomatoes, and shredded iceberg lettuce, folded inside a flatbread.

You can see the full nutritional breakdown of an Arby’s Original Gyro below:

  • Calories: 710
  • Calories From Fat: 390
  • Fat: 44g
  • Saturated Fat: 13g
  • Trans Fat: 0g
  • Cholesterol: 75mg
  • Sodium: 1360mg

You can make your Gyro healthier by ordering it without the Tzatziki Sauce and without the flatbread, but the taste won’t be as good.

Sure, removing the Tzatziki and the flatbread from the Gyro will subtract a bunch of calories. However, what’s the point of getting a Greek-style Gyro if you’re not going to eat it how it’s supposed to be served.

Arby’s does not provide nutritional information about their Pitas and Tzatziki sauce, but we could determine the total number of calories each item contributes from other sources.

Forgoing the flatbread and Tzatziki will subtract 340 calories from your Gyro. It will also subtract 14.5 grams of fat and 44 grams of carbohydrates. So your traditional Greek gyro will end up containing only 370 calories, which is awesome.

But then again, is a Gyro really a Gyro without the Pita Bread? We don’t think so.

Arby’s Greek Gyro contains the known allergens egg, milk, soy, and wheat.

  1. I just ate half an Arby’s Gyro. It was so full of salt,I could hardly stand it. I would guess that the meat is marinated in a brine before cooking and serving. You Nutrition list says 1,360 mg.
    in a whole sandwich. That is an inordinate amount of salt. Isn’t there any way to cut it I half???? At 680 mg. of salt, it should still be tasty. A sodium dose for a meal of 680 mg, is still more than needed. Let’s think about reducing the sodium content and I bet they will sell
    just as well if not better.
