Good Greek food.

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!

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant for breakfast before leaving the area since the location was very convenient. It's right by I-77N. They had all kinds of breakfast menu. We ordered three egg omelets favorites: The garden for me and The Florentine for my husband. They messed up the order and we both ended up with The Florentine.... More

Excellent local place. Breakfast here is the best and they serve everything you could imagine. Lunch and dinner they serve anything from a grilled cheese to steak and seafood and it is all very good. The service is consistently great and they treat you like family. The prices are also extremely reasonable. They take a lot of pride in what... More

We had passed this place on several occasions, and never stopped in. On our last trip to Davidson, we decided to give it a shot. It was exactly what he had expected from the exterior image. It's an open, sprawling dining room, with decor that reminded us of our parent's favorite restaurants back in the '60s. Fast paced service, a... More

I had the shrimp platter & my husband had some kind of battered fish They were both ok. Nothing special...just like you would get anywhere else. My dislikes were the price for the amount of shrimp I got...I think there were about 7-8 shrimp, & they weren't the jumbo size & the price was $14.99. My other 'dislike' was the... More

We loved the chicken Athena, Souvlaki and Beef Tips. The waiter was a bit curt. The atmosphere was pleasant.

The atmosphere inside is darker than I usually like (dim lighting). The food quality for the main courses, I would say are staisfying, although not overly memorable. Definitely large portions are given. but the best part is usually their desert menu. I have beens several times, and is on the quiet side. The Staff have always been friendly and good... More

Food was not that great. The smell of mildew is repulsive. If you're sensitive to mold STAY AWAY! I coughed the entire time I was there
