This place nails it every time I go - whether it's to hang out late night, or to get a meal with my family. Great atmosphere, involved and courteous owners, and very tasty food. It's one of my favorite spots in the midlands when I'm taking 3 generations of my family out to dinner.

Spanikopia...pesteiciao..and pork sulvockia. Stick to what came out of... More

We went in to see what it looked like and read the menu, so the first nite we had an app and two beers, the app was really good, so we talked to the girl that was there and she turned out to be one of the owners! Told us to come back on Friday for dinner and at 10... More

The best spanikopita I have ever eaten. Homemade desserts and nice urban setting. Good specials and authentic Greek taste. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere of an older building in dowtown Lexington adds to the dining experience. Plenty of parking in the back as well as on Main Street. We enjoy the carry out.

The food wasn't all that good and the service was horrible. The owner was nice, but I've not gone back.

Bought a Groupon to this restaurant and decided to give it a try. I ordered the Gyro which was just OK. There's much better Greek food available in the area. I was the only customer the night I was there, which is probably a good indicator of how things are.

Ate here for dinner on Friday night and we were the only customers. This was our first time eating here, so I'm not sure if it's always like that or not. It definitely was not a reassuring sign. I ordered the lasagna which came with a tossed salad ($12). The salad was ordinary and they served it with homemade dressing... More

We came here about a year ago and liked it a lot. This time however, we kept wondering what Robert Irvine (Food Network's Restaurant Impossible) would do with this place. Things that will keep me from returning: 1/2 of this place is a loud bar and the other 1/2 is supposed to be a quiet Greek restaurant. There is nice... More
