Lamb Chops!

This year, I went with seven others as part of an annual gaming convention. Right off, our waitress was excellent; she was efficient and could handle our sense of humor and dish it back. The place has a good selection of beers (I liked the Zeus Red). The meal was good; I had four small tasty lamb... read more

There are much better Greek Restaurants in the area. This small chain used to be great and has sinc become more expensive and mediocre . Still their chicken pita is a good healthy lunch

This is a great find. I enjoyed the Greek Salad which had really crisp tomatoes and generous feta. Next, we shared the Veggie Mousaka and the Lamb Chops. OMG they had the juiciest lamb chops that blended so well with the eggplant and zucchini and spinach and marinara. I can hardly wait for our next visit. There are so many... More

We were pleasantly surprised on a recent trip to Tempe ... Fantastic value, over-sized servings and service with a smile. I was also impressed with the friendliness by which the manager made a substitution on the mixed appetizer dish ... My only beef (or garbanzo LOL) was with the falafel which really was not a falafel. Other than that My... More

Stopped in for an early supper last weekend. The salad was very fresh, the gyro ($9) was wonderful, and the stuffed peppers ($15) were well received. The service was fairly attentive. The Baklava was a disappointment though, the phyllo was soggy. :( Flavor was good though.

the food isn't horrible... but it's definitely not good. Don't order the pizza the crust is thick and spongy. I had a gyro and it wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't yummy.

When I was a little girl I lived in Greece. I have great memories of eating Souvlaki ~ fresh grilled lamb with juicy tomatoes, fresh parsley, onions, tzatziki with fresh lemon all wrapped in a warm grilled pita. The bar is set very high for me when I go to a "Greek" place to eat. My Big Fat Greek Restaurant... More

We dined for the first time at The Big Fat Greek Restaurant in Tempe, Az, this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the service, prices, and quality of food. The toasted calamari appetizer, served over cocktail sauce infused minced greens was nice paired with the greens. My dinner, lamb souvlaki, the lamb was presented on two skewers over sweet creamery... More

Keeping some of the previous comments in mind, we decided to give the restaurant a try anyway, and were very pleasantly surprised. We ordered the spanikopita and the vegetarian mousaka with Greek dinner salads, and split the entrees. We couldn't finish it. The vegetable sides were fresh and crisp, the feta cheese was creamy and moist, the olives were real... More
