Good Food, good Service

They did this right, not much in the way of Greek decor and a lot in the way of good food. While the service was good, the owners should educate the staff more on the food and how it is prepared. Good Family Place, will go there again.

Based on a number of friends' comments we have avoided going here. But decided to try it for ourselves. We came away happy enough to be willing to return. Staff is friendly. The inside is somewhat cheap feeling but clean although it did smell a bit like the deep fryer. My wife lamb bowl was delicious nicely seasoned, juicy meat... More

Really good and very traditional Greek food. Large and filling portions. Wait staff ready to help with the menu and translations. Family run and recipes.

This is a great little shop in a small mall area of Glenwood and State. It's close to D&B is the best way to describe it. You can't go wrong with the Big Fat Gyro. Order the Greek Salad instead of the fries and it's to die for. Can't wait to try a traditional Lamb and Potatoes dinner that they... More

We tried this place several times because we have friends that go there frequently and really like it. We've gone in for lunch, tried it as a family sit down at restaurant and even a to go order. The inside is very kitschy and usually smells very poorly ventilated deep fryer. We've tried the gyros and the kebabs, both times... More

The Greek Salad is perfection - perfectly seasoned chicken, fresh produce and plenty of feta cheese. The pita is (too good), almost always eat too much pita and hummus before the meal arrives! The good news, Greek salad is perfect leftover! We also regularly order the bowls and pitas, never disappointed. My niece loves the kid's mac 'n cheese (hangs... More

The only reason why I haven't given this café 5 stars is because I haven't tried that many different dishes. That's my fault, not theirs: I LOVE their Big Fat Greek Gyro so much that I can never bring myself to order anything else. As I said, my fault, not theirs. We enjoy the minimalist ambience, the service and the... More

After eating there alone last month, I was very satisfied with the food. So, we went on a Wednesday evening for dinner as I wanted Jan to try the egg plant special (she loves egg plant but didn't try it). We did have very good delicately flavored dinners. On Wednesday they have live music which although a little loud was... More

Went for a meal that was different that the average Boise fare. Portion of the special was huge alms more that I could finish. Tasty but not over spiced. Excellent Greek wine. The server was friendly and attentive but not hovering
