Best egg lemon soup in the area

The soup is how I judge Greek restaurants and theirs is the best. Lunch salads and sandwiches are good. Service is pleasant. Consistency is a problem, but I go back for the soup! And my daughter loves the pastitsio!

Excellent service, food arrived steaming hot. Greek roasted half-chicken excellent. Also ordered the flaming cheese dish - enough to share three ways. Filo spinach pie tasty. Lively atmosphere, tables close to one another, brightly lit dining room. On-site owner visited the table; very friendly. Walking distance from shops on Lake Street.

First, Papspiros Greek Taverna is now Agora Bistro and located across the street at 728 Lake Street (after 15 years in the previous location). Owner Spiro Papageorge is a good host who makes you feel welcome in his restaurant. The menu offers a wide variety of food choices and everything I've eaten here is quite good. My most recent meal...

We spent many a night on Halsted in Greektown over the years, believing this was the only way to sample authentic cuisine and atmosphere, short of a trip to the "old country". Spiro forever changed our mind, first in his original location across the street and now again with his latest incarnation, Agora. While perhaps not the broad, 20-page menu... More

We were walking from the Oak Park train station to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright home and workshop, when we spotted this little restaurant. After our tour, we stopped I for lunch and found it quite enjoyable. Friendly and quick service, coupled with great menu items.

The new location is much smaller and very lively. We we're there on a Friday night and the place was alive and fun. The menu is smaller too and could probably use a few tweaks.
