Always good always consistent

This is a regular in our lunch rotation. It is a quant location, you will sit in plastic chairs if you sit on the porch and you will eat with plastic ware but to me that just adds to the uniqueness of the restaurant. I have never had a bad item on the menu and have eaten there for years... More

While visiting family in Columbia, we had the opportunity to dine at Devine foods. Even though we had a party of eight, the staff pulled tables together and we were seated quickly. We have many different entrees but the Pastichio was my favorite along with an amazing plate of flounder. We have a great appetizer plate and enjoyed some Greek... More

They will ask if you "need" bread with a meal. Greek Salad dressing is mostly vinegar and they must count the number of feta cheese crumbles on the salad. Are those things really going to save them $$. Local neighborhood atmosphere that is supported for this reason vs. the food quality. Would not go out of my way to return.

Always a favorite spot. Food and service is great. I always get the gyro but have seen other dishes and they all look wonderful. Save room for the amazing desserts! They have a great variety and they are marvelous! parking can be an issue around lunch time so make sure to bring change for a meter, if needed.

I visited Divine Foods on a Friday evening. The restaurant is in the Shandon neighborhood and there are two outdoor tables if you'd like to sit outside. The restaurant shares a door with a bar, so if you're looking for more drinks after eating, you can stay in one place. The atmosphere is casual with a lot of natural lighting,... More

Good food at a good price. I had the Mediterranean Chicken which came with Greek potatoes and a Greek salad. There was a lot of feta cheese on the salad so I was a happy diner. The chicken could have had more spices and lemon juice; it was good but a little bland. The potatoes were excellent. I gave some... More

I've ordered out at Devine Foods nearly once a week for the last year. They're super friendly and service is quick as well. They offer a good selection of Greek cuisine and also serve up baked goods as well. They do offer indoor seating and lunch as well, I definitely recommend.
