Good vegetarian options

If you're vegan, it's pretty limited, however there's about 6 vegetarian options on the menu, and many plates that can easily become vegetarian. Falafel is good there, just make sure you request the yogurt on the side if you don't want it mixed up. My friend had a lasagna and looked pretty... read more

Have been a frequent diner and have always had a great meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner entrée always more than enough to eat and always fresh and good. Fair prices for great home cooked food.

Amazing omelettes and French toast!!! The food was fast and the service was great. Even the girls at the register were friendly. Try the Grecian omelette for a little Mediterranean flair with the feta. Great stop.

First time here and being unfamiliar with Greek food I ordered the Hera breakfast: 2 eggs, grits or home fries with toast or a biscuit. I also ordered a side of fruit salad. My first impression when I tasted the fruit salad is that it was too sweet, almost overpowering. They add cinnamon and sugar to it which is unnecessary... More

Rated excellent not because it has the best Greek food I have ever eaten but because the food is really good, the restaurant is a cozy family place, the people there are so nice, and the deserts are home made and amazing. My favorites meals are the Greek salad with gyro, and any and all of their lasagna and spaghetti... More

We visit the Acropolis nearly every time that we visit family in Cornelius. My husband LOVES the Florentine omelette and I favor the traditionally Greek gyro. It's never a let-down. They offer customer friendly service and reasonable prices. It's our go-to place when we need a bite. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed!

I've had Gyro several times. The Greek potato salad is excellent and unique. The pastitio, Greek lasagne, is the best I've ever had. The house salad is good as well. We have gone for breakfast and they are well priced and delicious. You can't beat the food off the reasonabl price.

My friend and I get together every Tuesday for breakfast. We try various local restaurants. The folks were very friendly and helpful and our breakfast was quick and tasty. The decorations fit right in with the overall Acropolis theme. Overall very good meal.

Down the road from the Hampton Inn there is this Greek family restaurant. So nice to have another choice than a chain when your are on the road for days! We ate in the dinning room section where there is a nice fire place. Difficult tp say that this is a typical Greek restaurant as the menu is very diversified... More

We were heading back north (to Canada!) and our small Motorhome had a mechanical problem. The owner aithorized us to sleep in his parking lot. We took advantage of his offer, stayed overnight and enjoyed an excellent dinner at a very reasonable cost. The service was excellent and the food was plenty. We will try to stop there on our...
