Excellent!! Marcos' site looks like what I know as gyros (strips of meat).
Your souvlaki site seems to correspond with Tristan's definition (chunks of
meat)-- perhaps that's a European or at least non-US interpretation.  And
the döner looks _exactly_ like the thing I described as the source of gyros
meat. (It's possible that many Greeks in the US came originally from Turkey
in the post-WW I difficulties, though I'm sure both cuisines have influenced
each other.)
