Kostas has an extremely varied menu and it should be quite easy for anyone to find something they like. Virtually everything is good. The menu covers everything from Greek, Italian, barbecue, burgers, steak and seafood. Its location, right on the corner gives it easy access from Haywood Road off of 231. It can get crowded at lunchtime and the front... More

Really pretty good food overall. Very friendly and courteous service. Very convenient to Dillsboro craft shops etc. I like the Greek style lunches I've had there. Have not eaten dinner. I eat there every month or so as a good place for great service and very good food.

Ate here when the train stopped in Dillsboro. The food was average but nothing spectacular. The prices were a little high for what you get but the service was fast.

5 1/2 hour trip just for a certain restaurant? My wife and I have vowed to do just that after eating at Kostas this past weekend. We were in town on some business and an acquaintance suggested we try it out after the place we were going to eat at (after finding it online) was closed for construction. We are... More

My mom and I ate at Kostas a week ago. I had never eaten there before and was very impressed. I got the gyro platter that had seasoned lamb. The prices are reasonable and the service was great. I will definitely go back!

WOW....don't just stop by, come in and try some good ole country food with all the trimmings. Way to much food for the price I think. Desserts are out of this world, pasta is to die for, trout was the best

The food at Kostas is delicious and the service is excellent. The menu is extensive, and they offer specials, as well. We chose Italian dishes which were well prepared and served in generous portions. Be prepared... The parking lot is packed during lunch and dinner hours, even in mid-week!

The food was ok at best and a little overpriced, but the service was awful the server was short and not polite, asked for a drink refill and he got mad, he only came one time after we received the food to see how it was then came back to drop the check, not very impressed and wouldn't return.
