Great Pizza and double baked wings

Yiannis is a great place for pizza and wings. Some of the best pizza in the area, not a chain restaurant. The twice baked wings are wonderful. Stromboli is also awesome.

Delicious pizza! Desserts, especially the cream cake is yummy - if you can hold dessert after your meal. Also, at lunch time they also will bring you a cup of rice pudding with raisins in it, if you ask for it, for free! Best rice pudding I have ever had! Tried duplicating at home but have not got it quite... More

This restaurant has become a long time survivor to the downtown Morganton streetscape and food scene. Locally popular, here you will find a variety of entre's to suit most anyone's palette, especially if you are looking for Greek. They are consistent in their service, food quality and preparation. At lunchtime there are always a number of daily lunch specials which... More

Second time here while visiting from family from out of town. Three of us got blackened scallops special and one got salmon special. We all enjoyed what we got. Scallops cooked just right, not over cooked. Salads were served fast and seem like they were made in advance, they were OK. Waitress was attentive and had a good personality. I... More

I've visited Yianni's twice now. Once when I first moved to this area over a year ago, and again tonight for my birthday. I will go back more often, as I love all the traditional Greek items on the menu. Both times the food was amazing! Tonight I ordered a special entrée and it came with chicken oregenato, roasted potatoes,salad... More

Just what we were looking for on a Saturday afternoon. They weren't busy so service was excellent. Don't know how they would react with a crowd but the owner had them well trained and was giving direction from his seat at the counter. I had gyro with fries and my wife had something similar, souvlaki I think. We would order... More

If you are heading to the mountains or in the neighborhood of Morganton stop by at Yianni's Family Restaurant for breakfast, which is served until early afternoon, lunch or dinner. The food is good and has a Mediterranean or Greek flair. Plenty of other choices on the menu as well. The service was quick and efficient and was very attentive.... More

In town for the NC Mainstreet conference and stopped in to have lunch. The restaurant was slammed with people but the staff was doing a great job taking care of everyone. I had a lunch special that came with a small bowl of soup, a salad, sandwich and rice pudding for dessert. It was only $7.95 so it was a... More

Both Greek and Italian selections were on the extensive menu. Typical for a Greek restaurant. I enjoyed the chicken piccata much more than my wife, the eggplant parm. There are better choices, but the price and selection make yiannis a good dinner choice.
