I've read some of the review and would like to clear up a few things. There are lots of awesome Greek owned restaurants in NC. Most of the time you will find they serve a little bit of everything in addition to some Greek dishes. Kostas is no exception. Having said that, Dillsboro is a tiny village and there is... More

Coming from Europe I have a defined idea about what Greek cuisine should be. And I must say the two Greek dishes we choose were ok, apart from my Gyro that was not a proper gyro (slices cut from a big cylinder of meat) but ready made slices of mince meat.. It is a pity that they offer just LITTLE... More

Have a couple hours to roam Dillsboro from the train ride, we followed the map to Kostas restaurant. Coming from upstate New York, greek food is one of our favorites and we were not disappointed, until we walked into a packed lunch time dining room expecting to be turned away. Much to our amazement, we were seated immediately and waited... More

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
