A Great Meal with Friends!

Our annual MLK weekend trip with two other couples found us dining at Kostas on our way home. We had a small breakfast before leaving the cabin in Pigeon Forge and after experiencing bone chilling cold at Newfound Gap in the Smokies, we were looking for a warm spot to dine. We found it.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel clerk and she was right. There are many types of food available, with Greek as a specialty. It was all delicious!! Unfortunately, we were too full to try the desserts, which I believe would have been excellent, as well. When I said I was cold and asked to move to another table a... More

We eat here on a pretty regular basis. Love the Greek chicken and salads. Kid friendly and very friendly staff. Good menu selections too. My only comment that may be negative, is that the acoustics inside always make it seem loud, but they do have outside seating too, in good weather. Am glad to have this restaurant in town!

The service is good, menu options diverse, and quality and quantity of food is very good. I like having American, Greek, and Italian options all in one restaurant. When visiting or passing through Dillsboro, this is a good restaurant option.

We went for lunch during WCU Homecoming, and were pleasantly surprised. The friend that I was with owns several Greek restaurants and she was happy with the food. We had Flaming Cheese and calamari...very good.

Nothing bad, but nothing really good. My biggest complaint was the size of the hamburger. It was huge, and way to much for most people to eat. What a waste. I would have gladly paid a little less for half the size. And again, it was an average burger at best.

Our meal was wonderful! We had the flaming cheese appetizer which was served with pizzazz and an "oompah"! Then we both had the chicken over rice pilaf with a greek salad. Every bite was delicious and we both had to get a to go box. Our server was a cutie named Lauren. She was fast and knowledgeable of the menu.... More

Food was delivered quickly and was tasty. Affordable too. Lots of locals with families. Wine and beer served but the excellent wine selection was Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet, all from the same commodity brand. Good place to grab a meal but far from a fine dining experience.
