Lunch Out

We were looking for a good lunch out. My husband selected the Grecian Chicken Special. It was excellent. I have the soup and appetizer plate-it was great too. Wish they had a combo special available.

Found this place on our way to Florida. Stopped for dinner on the way to and the way back. Service was excellent, and food was too. Steak ordered rare, cooked to perfection. Salad with Gyro meat delish. Gyro authentic with flavorful tzatziki. Avgolemon was home made Other selections than Greek as well. Got there at 9:58 pm and they had... More

A huge and diverse menu means you can get breakfast, lunch or dinner here and it will be terrific. From toast to a T-bone, Acropolis is awesome. The staff makes you feel right at home and the fresh food is top shelf. Looks too busy? Don't worry about it. The place is huge a well staffed. You never have to... More

This was my second time here. I will always visit this restaurant whenever in this area. The menu has an extensive selection and the prices are reasonable. The portions are large and the quality of the food we received was excellent.

The building is not pretty nor ugly, just more like a dinner. I have been there for dinner but didn't like the Greek dishes that I ordered, and I am Greek. If I go there at night I do order the Saganaki (flambe Greek cheese), which is good, or the Greek appetizer platter. Their baklava is also good. Their other... More

My wife and I have been to Greece, Athens and Mykonos. Last night we tried the Acropolis for the first time. Two rooms: a bar and a dining room. We sat in the dining room. We were Impressed by the very large menu. We split a couple of appetizers, some wine, a small country salad (vegetables but no lettuce), and... More

The pita gyros is very good and the avgolemono soup is amazing on a cold winter day you have to try it, I also had the moussaka which was very good. Highly recommended.

No matter what your preference is, it can be found here. Yummy pancakes for breakfast to a vegetable plate for lunch to spaghetti for dinner, Acropolis has it all, plus a full service bar.

I live about 45 minutes away from here and every time I'm near the Acropolis my car gravitates right into the parking lot! My kids LOVE the Greek style pizza, I love the chicken souvlaki, and my husband orders whatever's on special. You can't go wrong if you're looking for a simple "home cooked" Greek meal! (I'm not even gonna... More
