The food was awesome

My family and I went to Kostas when we were on vacation and had a fabulous meal. The selection on the menu was great and we had a hard time choosing our meals. We ended up with hummus and tzatziki appetizers that were yummy. The salads were fresh and very tasty, and our meals were flavorful and... read more

We were visiting our daughter at WCU and went to Kostas for dinner one evening. They have a large and varied menu with something to suit everybody's tastes. I recommend the gyro platter with Greek salad. The gyro meat is melt in your mouth. Make sure you have some powerful mouthwash around for the delicious tzatziki sauce aftermath! Yum...good stuff.

Our waitress was great / but they were busy and she was moving fast! Very cordial dining experience and evidently a local favorite. Plenty of parking and if you are a sweet lover - save... More

Every time we pass thru the area we try and stop and eat at Kostas. We have never been disappointed. Our favorite go to meal is Greek chicken pita and the gyro. They are both full of tasty and moist meats and accompaniments. Sauces are wonderful and homemade. Will never go wrong here!

We had the flaming cheese (Saganaki) appetizer. It was excellent! I had the Dieters Delight with chicken and my husband had the Smokey Mountain Burger. The food was very good. The waitress was very personable and provided great suggestions. The service was prompt and with a smile. We will return on our next visit to the area.

Our family loves Kosta's. The scenery, the location, the food, the service....you simply can't beat it. My favorite is the Philly Steak and Cheese sandwich, and for dessert...peanut butter pie. Deeeeeelicious!
