Delightful Surprise

We found this restaurant simply by strolling down the street and reviewing its menu. We were surprised that they offered lunch specials on a Saturday, as many restaurants don't do that. Our son had never eaten gyro meat before, and he was able try a sample, which we appreciated. My son and husband... read more

We eat here every time we ar in town, once or twice a year. Consistently good food and usually busy. We try to choose something different each time and are never unhappy. Looking forward to our next trip!

I have loved the Mad Greek for perhaps 25 or more years, eating here every 4-6 weeks. Several years ago I rated this restaurant as a five. However, I've noticed in the past year that the quality of the Greek food is slowly slipping downward. My wife and I were there tonight, and the spinach pies - which have been... More

My husband and I were in town visiting our son at KU. We love Greek/Mediterranean food so we decide to give it a try. We had dolmas and Feta with roasted peppers as appetizers which were both excellent. The gyros platter had plenty of meat and included a very fresh Greek salad as well. Service was good, our water was... More

Had the soup and salad and it was excellent. Staff were friendly and service was excellent. Had a chance to talk to the owner who told me about the town and the area. Definitely will go back.

Mad Greek has a really random menu. You can get Greek or Italian....or a bacon cheeseburger. While this mix of foods may seem exciting to some, it is a bit of a let down. I went here and ordered a ravioli dish. It reminded me of something I'd make at home...and not a fancy dinner. It tasted like they had... More

I had the gyros dinner this past weekend. The food was inconsistently heated but the flavors were fine. The gyros meat was not crispy and was actually sitting in a pool of water. All indications are that the meal was cooked ahead of time and reheated in a microwave. The spreads were very good but the main course substandard.

This is a place I come back to when on business at the University in town here. Lots of students and faculty eat here, bringing family and guests who add to the atmosphere with travel tales and some down-to-earth cosmopolitanality. Still, I see folks I suspect of being locals, too. There were lots of children here when we went on... More
