Yes, it's built into what must have been a fast food restaurant but the food was very good and the weight staff was terrific. I listened to all the staff as they went around to their respective tables and they were helpful, courteous and entertaining. I had a basic gyro plat which was very good, the tibuli wasn't exceptional but... More

The facade of this restaurant looks to be an old Hardee's and has no cues to identify it as Green restaurant. However the inside is much more inviting. The road work on Hwy 36 seems to be affecting the amount of customers that this restaurant receives. We were there on a Thursday evening and only a couple of tables were... More

The restaurant had one waiter for about 10 tables over lunch mid week. Maybe because of that, the service was slow. Normally a drink order is taken and brought out within the first 5 minutes of that order We waited 17 minutes for a bottle of beer and a glass of wine. Looking past that, the gyros we ordered we...

The decor, mentioned in previous review, is tacky, the service is slow and inattentive. Waiting for falafel sandwich for 30 minutes - in case you need details, and food is between average or below average. Speaking of the same "sandwich" - falafel is dry; no yogurt and no satziki come with it which is usually the case in other places,... More

We love Aristo's for offering consistently excellent, fresh food coupled with great service. On a recent Friday evening my husband enjoyed Pastotsio, Greek lasagne, and I had my always favorite Chicken Kebab, served with basmati rice and sautéed carrots and zucchini. Just delicious. Entrees come with soup or salad. We always get the fantastic green salad, fresh romaine with luscious... More

Loved everything I've tried here. Favorites are the vegetarian sampler, gryo potato soup, chicken marsala (sauce prepared to order), and saganaki (cheese, brandy, lemon, fire - what's not to love??!!) Great service as well -- always welcomed with a smile and feel like they are truly glad to see us.

I really enjoyed this place. The food we had was delicious. It was received quickly and was priced right. We had the lamb chops and kebabs.

Stopped in on a Friday night and the place was empty. The interior was clean and updated. Our server was very good. Friendly and prompt. We asked for suggestions and he was thorough. Had the lamb shank and chops, both were very good. I am not a fan of the lemon chicken soup. I feel like they took Campbell's chicken... More

If you want authentic Mediterranean cuisine, then this is the place for you! You will be greeted by owner, Zack, and his friendly wait staff. Try the Saganaki appetizer or the dolmades or spinakopita...all excellent. The salads, sandwiches and entrees are all freshly made and you will think you are in the Middle East. Don't leave without sampling the tiramisu... More
