Very good value: large portions. Since my dinner the night before at Lidia's was $80 I decided to go to Salonikas the next night next to the hotel: good souvlaki, large salad and a drink - total under $10. Friendly staff.

I recently had a chicken salad for lunch. Overall the salad was good (quite large and reasonable priced) and the pita was wonderful! However I ordered the cucumber (Tzatziki) dressing which I was disappointed with. It was bland, certainly needed more flavor. I may go back to see if I stumbled in on a bad Tzatziki sauce day. When I... More

If you're looking for a great price for great Gyro's, this is the place. Gyro's run you about 6 bucks, plus reasonably priced beer and ouzo!

Salonika's does fast casual Greek and they do it well. The food is authentic and full of flavor. I most enjoy the Chicken Gyro, the cucumber dressing is amazing! On top of all this the prices are very reasonable for a downtown eatery.

Authentic greek fare, made fresh to order, service with a smile, quick service, and amazing dessert options. Lunch here will be less than $10, dinner less than $15 unless you're super hungry and order 3 of something! Gyros are amazing, and made fresh. Rice pudding is the dessert of choice with baklava running a close 2nd!

Stopped in for lunch while attending a nearby conference. Thought I'd duck in there since it was raining. Not only was I treated like a regular, the food was great! Went with the standard gyro, and it was very tasty. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip. And I enjoyed the rice pudding too.

Was strolling along Penn Ave. enjoying the walk. Asked a security guard for a local restaurant with good food, affordable prices and where he would eat. He said Salonika's. The restaurant is not updated, ok with me. I came for the food. There were 3 Pittsburgh police officers ahead of me (always a good sign as they know where the... More

Great gyros!! Tons of meat and the cucumber sauce is fantastic. Every time I come here its always consistently good. Even when crowded line moves fast. Many different Greek specialties too choose from. Grilled cheese on pita bread is pretty awesome too. Decent selection of beer. Nice stop for lunch or after a buccos game

My boyfriend, my mom, and I went to this place after a fun day at the St. Patty's Day Parade in Downtown Pittsburgh PA. The service was fast and very friendly even though it was a busy day for them. The restrooms were clean and the restaurant had nice seating as alot of booths were available. The drinks were nicely... More

The food was pretty good and the service was quick and friendly. The place needs to be repainted and repaired a little, but that does not make it a terrible place to eat. While there, 4 police officers came in and ate beside us, so it can't be all that bad! :)
