We stopped here for lunch because we were told by locals that this place is THE place to go for the best gyros. My husband thought that the gyro was the best. I thought it was average. I was looking forward to a yummy Greek salad and wound up being disappointed because the dressing just didn't taste as good as... More

We have eaten here since 1985! Just a sweet family run business with wonderful food and affordable. Gyro souvlaki combo with a greek salad with potato salad. Best choice. Best meal. Everything made fresh with quality ingredients

We have eaten at most places in the sponge docks and today we were here. The menu is the most "American" of all the Greek places we've been. There were hamburgers on the menu. First time I saw that. Also the baby's grilled cheese would have came in regular bread if we hadn't asked for pita bread. I had the... More

Forget Mama's or Hellas - Plaka's is THE BEST! The amount of food you get for your dollar can't compare. The quality of the food is all handmade, not like Hellas and Mama's. (I found out they pre-make and freeze a lot of their popular foods, which really affects the quality. They also cut a lot of corners and use... More

If you read my reviews, you know that I like simple and easy. In this case we wanted just a sandwich - tasty food at a reasonable price. I explained to our server that I was introducing my kids to Greek food and wanted them to try a little different - Ashley suggested we do half a Gyro and the... More

If you are visiting the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs Plaka's is the place to go for a gyro. By far the best gyro in town, other good items on the menu but go for the gyro. The place is not fancy, with formica type tables but you go there for the food not the atmosphere.

Great gyro and souvlaki! I'm a local and we enjoy going to Plaka for "Greek fast food!" Plaka is in the Sponge Docks so the walk to and from the restaurant is always wonderful.
